One of our books in the January basket was Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. I've always had a fondness for this sweet book. I've been wanting to go owling for a while and since tonight was our Family Night we thought it would be a fun winter activity. It was really cold here so we had to bundle up! We have a state park nearby where I had been told owls were often spotted. Unfortunately we arrived to find that it closed well before sunset. So we went to the woods down by the river and hoped to spot some there. We had no luck but there was something really neat about being in the snow covered woods in the dark. Afterwards we went to one of our favorite hole in the wall restaurants and had some good ole fried chicken.
