While cooler days are often ripe for watching movies under blankets, there’s something great about getting rugged up and heading out into the chilly day!
If your chilly day is favourably breezy, too, you might want to grab a kite and watch it high tail its way skyward with your kiddo? I mean, why wouldn’t you want to do that? It’s the stuff memories (and kite-eating trees!) are made of!
