Our 54 hour "vacation"

We had a week long vacation planned that included and overnight stay in a hotel for just my hubby and I, as well as a surprise trip to an aquarium for the girls. Sadly, we drove 1,000 miles (total) and were gone a total of 54 hours. We got chased home by the big snow storm. We arrived home to find about 8 inches of snow here! The area we were going to be has been declared an emergency and the roads are a level 3. So, while we are thankful to be safe at home we are still disappointed at all the things we did not get to do. Our day that we had was fun though. We met some family for dessert, did some shopping and met more family for dinner! While we were at dinner my husband's sister took the girls to a tea party! They had SO much fun! Evidently there was punch fountain there that the Hippie found irresistible! I am not sure how many cups she drank but her tummy was actually swollen and she was on a sugar high ALL DAY yesterday! She must have really outdone herself because she could barely eat a bite of food until dinner last night and when asked what she wanted "fruit and crackers" LOL! They had a great time and got to dress like medieval princesses! Now we are back home and planning on taking them sledding in a little while. I am waiting on their snow clothes to come out of the dryer. Hopefully I may have some pictures to share later!

sorry your vacation was cut short! Maybe you can go later in the year. Have fun sledding. We attempted that yesterday, but don't own a sled. We used rubbermaid tote lids...didn't work! lol

Did you get any pictures of them dressed as princesses?? I bet they looked beautiful! :) I can't wait to see the snow pictures. I'm so glad that they canceled the snow warnings here and @ Hood.. I was worried!

So sorry your trip got side-tracked. This weather has been unbelievable. It is so cold and windy here tocay.
Tea parties are so much fun. Glad the girls got to go to one. Hope the pregnancy is still going well!

I'm afraid the pictures are a bit dark. I had the flash turned off for an earlier event, and forgot to turn it back on until the end. I'll see what they look like on the computer.
