Tell Us About It: Fave Winter Activities

I am so behind on blogging but I’m trying to keep up with our linkup schedule, so today Katie, Mattie, and I are talking about our favorite winter activities and memories. (I can’t believe it’s already March!)

One of my favorite things about living in Seattle is that the winters are so mild. It’s just cloudy and rainy. It barely snows here and coming from Chicago it’s pretty refreshing. I love that it snows in the mountains. It’s so pretty to look at and feels like being in a real life snow globe. I also love that we can choose to play in the snow for the day and drive to it and not have to live in it.

In January, Dave and I went snowshoeing for the first time. We went to Artisan’s Point in Mount Baker on New Year’s Day. What a great way to start the new year! It was gorgeous and sunny out. It was an amazing experience. We brought snacks and a lunch and sat in the snow. That was the only time we were a little chilly, when we weren’t moving. IMG_4370

I sent this pic to my dad and he said he wanted to frame it. How cute is that? IMG_4345

We rented our snowshoes from REI. A lot of people don’t know that you can rent gear, but you should take advantage of it! Living in Seattle people are so active so you have to reserve equipment early!

I have so many more pictures from this snowshoe adventure at Mount Baker, and if I can ever get my stuff together I will blog about it.

The first two weekends in January we snowshoed and I wrote about this snowshoe trip here. This one was a little steep, but such a fun adventure. It was my friend Gretchen’s first time.

This was the week after Christmas, but it reminded me of a Christmas card because it’s so cute! Dave and Denny grew up together down the block together and went to school together from kindergarten through high school. Adorable much?

So even though snowshoeing is a new activity for us, it’s a new favorite for sure! It’s is just hiking in the snow but I love that the snowshoes allow us to still hike in the winter, versus waiting for spring to get out again.

Can’t wait to read what your favorite winter activities and memories are.

Link up with us below! If you missed today you can still link up for the rest of the week. Miss you blog friends.

  1. YAY you’re back! I love these pictures. I’ve truly never seen so much powdery snow (in person) in my entire life! Southern girl problems. It’s absolutely beautiful. I’ve also never been snowboarding so I’m so jealous! Looks like a blast. Come back to us more often 🙂

    1. You are so sweet Lauren. I want to blog more but I always fall asleep so early after work because I’m always exhausted lol. But I’m gonna try! It was really cool to be in places with that much snow. The weather in the mountains is so extreme it’s awesome!

    Snow shoeing sounds so difficult! Like, I think my quads would be on fire trying to walk through a lot of snow! You have some beautiful pictures & it looks fun!
