Trapped!


We spent last night at Nana and Pop Pop's house, and woke to find a few inches of snow on the ground. Sadly, Erin still had to go to school. We didn't think too much of the snow, until we tried to take the kids in the car for their morning nap. We had planned to stop at our house to pick up the snowsuits, but both of these ideas went out the window when we realized that we couldn't get the car up Nana and Pop Pop's driveway. I couldn't have expressed the situation better than Arthur, who quietly said "Uh-Oh" as the minivan suddenly stopped all forward momentum and started sliding sideways back down the driveway. Luckily I was able to get it off the driveway and onto the grass (and not in the creek), where I could return back to the house. Needless to say, their first nap did not go well.

Luckily the salt crews came, Pop Pop shoveled, and the sun came out. By afternoon, not only were we able to have a semi-decent nap, but we also got their snowsuits so the triplets could play outside afterwards. And when it got too cold to play outside, the kids found out they could always warm up near the dryer vent...

Those snow suits are adorable. They look like little "Stay Puffed Marshmallow" people.
