Thursday afternoon Emme, MP (aka Ra-Ra) and I packed up the car and headed to Lake George for a little getaway weekend. We rented a condo with all amenities and as you can see the views from our decks were beautiful. We planned to relax, go snow tubing and head to Ben & Jerry in Vermont while there. Needless to say we got stuck in the Albany ice/snow storm en route but managed to arrive safely albeit with no food. We were able to find a place to deliver pizza (YUCK) and had fun watching cartoons and taking baths. While we were essentially snowed in the next day we managed to go to the grocery store a mile away. When Emme woke up she wanted to open the door to the condo and I told her it was snow. She yelled SNOW MOMMY and this quickly proved to be her favorite new thing. She bundled up, went out and helped clean off the car and threw a few snowballs while yelling SNOW!!!!! We swam and Emme and I cooked dinner and then baked brownies for our party of three. Friday night we settled in to watch Cars and Emme couldn't keep her eyes open any longer. She told us she wanted to go "night-night" and promptly shouted "WAIT" as she turned off the TV and DVD player. In toddler translation that means wait until tomorrow when I too can watch the rest of the movie. We didn't tell her we watched it without her but happily obliged the next day when she woke and asked to watch the rest of the movie. Sadly we never made it to Vermont as we drove 1/2 way there and but once we hit the Vermont highways, the roads were a huge disappointment and not safe for traveling back in the evening. Instead we headed back, went to the Sagamore for lunch and then stopped at a few outlets. While driving we saw a billboard with a child's photo that resembled Emme so we took a picture. Despite my horrid cold, the four degree temps and lack of mega toddler activity, we managed to have a really good time.
