We spent this weekend trying to enjoy the calm before the storm. We figured that we had better do our best to get out some kinetic energy before we'd potentially be cooped in the house for 3 days straight (Sandy, you are testing my new East Coast motto--There is no bad weather, only bad clothes. I promised Claire a trip to the corner market to buy a lollipop after nap time. I would have preferred to do it before nap time but the colossal meltdown that took place while we were trying to put on shoes ensured that a nap had to happen first. Trip to the corner market during a hurricane? That's just the way we roll around here with our new East Coast motto)
In order to prepare for the storm we took a bike ride on the loveliest little trail right by our house this weekend.
And we snuggled
And we stocked up on markers and play-doh.
It's 2:30 and so far all we've had are some gusty winds with light rain.
I'll keep you posted
(and if things get really bad I'll take a video.)
