ice time

The good news is that we are in Orlando. The bad news is we barely left the house in the three days preceding our vacation. Vacation is supposed to be a time to reconnect, to spend some much-needed family time together. When you've been iced in for three entire days, though, you are already a bit overloaded on family time. Even though I'm a stay-at-home mom and spend most every day with my kids, it feels different when you know there is no escape. And you're all there. We love when dad gets to stay home from work, but sometimes we just miss our routine.

In reality, it was a super fun week. Yes, we had a bit of cabin fever, but we had a wonderful time watching the snow/ice and playing with every toy we own. We even escaped once to brave the ice for our favorite cheese dip. And while the adults were very ready for the roads to thaw, our days inside were a great reminder of the simplicity of being a child...of how little it takes to entertain them and how much joy they can find in the seemingly mundane. But no more mundane for now-- today we broke out of frigid Nashville and headed south. So excited for some family time, Mickey & Minnie, and warmer weather (starting Saturday)!

these two did great, but wanted to switch art times every 7 minutes
