Yesterday was Christmas, and Hunter (like all kids) needed to get out of the house today. So we went for a super nice hike up into the Blue Hills. The weather has been unseasonable warm, today it was about 45 degF. We put on our sweaters, and adventured in the woods. Hunter told me all about how if he could have the powers of animals, he would combine a tiger, a peregrine falcon, a polar bear, and a gorilla. He would be one formidable 8 year old boy if he had the power of these 4 animals! He explained to me how peregrine falcons could reach upwards of 200 mph when diving for their food. That is mighty fast. So, what does this creature that Hunter dreamt up look like......
We decided that today would be a pizza day, so headed to Papa Gino’s. After doing some tag-team Pac-Man (I haven’t played it in years, but it was a blast), Diana met us there right as the pizza came out. It was just a ton of fun, and such a break from being indoors.
Next outing may have to be a trip to Harvard’s museums so that we can see some of Hunter’s spirit animals.
