The East Coast has been hit hard this past week with wind, snow, and ice. So when the sun finally started shining this afternoon, we decided to go out and enjoy it.
After putting on our light winter-wear, we packed up Katie’s new Herschel Backpack (a Christmas gift from me) with some cocoa mix and my new Kelly Kettle (a Christmas present from Mom and Dad), and headed to the woods. This type of kettle comes from Ireland and has a chimney through the water reservoir, allowing a small fire underneath to boil water in minutes. Although it took a few tries to get the fire started, the hot cocoa made it all worthwhile!
