a city adventure with Hanes fleeces

I know the calendar says it’s not officially winter yet, but it snowed last week so it’s winter in Indianapolis, folks.

But then the snow melted and it warmed up this weekend; it was a glorious burst of fall weather before temperatures are predicted to drop again this week and we bundle up in fifty layers and wish for summer. So we took advantage of the warm up on Saturday and headed downtown to get some exercise. We spend a lot of time outside and when the cold weather hits, the thing we miss most is burning off some energy and getting fresh air in our lungs because it’s just too miserable to be outside.

Our adventures were a perfect time to break in our new Hanes fleeces for the whole family. Hanes fleeces are this amazing mix of soft and comfortable without the bulkiness that is associated with a lot of fleece active wear. The girls and I stayed cozy in our Hanes full-zip hoody sweatshirts while Chris rocked the pullover hoodie that he plans to live in all winter.

The fleeces were great for running around the city and when we got caught in the rain, they dried quickly and kept their shape while we warmed up in a coffee shop. And because nothing completes a trip out in public with kids like someone (or two someones) spilling something on themselves, the Hanes fleece zipups didn’t stain when they dumped hot chocolate all over them.

If you have kids, you know how rough they can be on clothes in mere minutes. So that we were able to wash out all the hot chocolate and dirt from our adventure and still have comfortable active wear that looks new and kept its shape is a major accomplishment.

Hanes fleeces come in sweatshirts, pullover hoodies, and full-zip hoodies and in a range of both classic and bright colors which is good if you and your husband like the classic colors but you have two little girls that scream for color. Added bonus: if you’ve ever fought a kid about an itchy tag on his or her shirt, you’ll be glad to know Hanes fleeces come tag-free! Praise. You can pick up Hanes fleeces for the whole family at Hanes.com or mass retailers.

And then go on an adventure with your family before it gets too cold, okay?
