Deer Grove Winter Hike

My son was off from school today and I wanted to do something outside in the beautiful snow.  We invited grandpa to drive up, put Toby in the car and went on a winter hike in Deer Grove Forest Preserve.  Typically we hike with grandpa at Starved Rock or Matthiessen State Park but this time, I wanted to take our dog and I'm so glad we did!  He probably loved it more than my son!
The trails were covered in 3-4 inches of snow and it was simply gorgeous. 

If they had their way we would have ran the trails instead of hiking them!

It was wonderfully quiet, the fresh air was crisp and the mood was playful!  It was enjoyed by all!
