We call this acclimating.

Hiking in single-digit temperatures?  Yes, sir!

About 15 minutes in my four-year-old stepped out of his boot and had to be immediately carried home by his daddy while the rest of us pushed forward.

About 15 minutes after that my six-year-old asked, “Mommy, are you cold?”

Really, all of our extremities were covered and we kept moving and some of us were wearing long underpants so it didn’t seem too bad at the time, but we’ve been home for about an hour now and I’m having trouble getting warm.  Maybe I’ll try out that new electric blanket.
