Snow Day!

No, not really. It's actually sunny and mild here today. But you know when you go to sleep at night expecting to wake up to your normal day but instead you wake up to snow and school's cancelled?!! Well, that's kind of what happened for me and Elliot today. We were expecting our childcare-share friend to come at his regular time to spend the day with us, but instead got a call that his Dad is sick again, so we got a second day together for just the two of us. Yesterday was planned (I had called in on Sunday night saying I needed to stay home with Elliot), but today was a surprise... a snow day!

To add to the fun of the day, we dropped Andrea off at work so that we could use the car. Our destination: Book Babies story time at the public library!
Elliot loved all of the new books to read. And Book Babies hadn't even started yet. Then, when it did, my camera ran out of batteries! I was so disappointed. You should have seen Elliot taking it all in. There were bubbles being blown like this:
And we shook a parachute like this:
(which Elliot did not like nearly as much as the bubbles). We sang lots of songs and listened to a story, then the leader dumped out a bucket of toys in a big pile on the floor. More plastic toys than Elliot had ever seen at once! It was a lot to take in.

What started as fussing at this point quickly became crying. By the time we were back in the car he was in full wail. Start the car... lullabies on... asleep before we were out of the parking lot. Phew. There seems to be a theme to these posts!Overall, I think Elliot's first snow day was a blast, but we do hope our little friend's Dad gets well soon.
