Fighting Cabin Fever with a One Year Old

We, like the entire Eastern seaboard of the United States, just got a TON of snow. We, like many of you, were so excited to play in said snow with our kid. Snow angels! Snowballs! Hours of fun which would result in record-breaking naps! Ha. This one year old thinks snow is cool and all, […]
