While all three kids loved the show, it was sad to me to realize that this is probably the only one Andrew will want to see. He is quickly moving past the "Disney" shows and while he did enjoy this one (pirates and the 7 dwarfs helped that tremendously) this just wasn't something he will want to do over and over. One of the reasons I REALLY wanted to do it now before he is any older. It was a really great show and I would highly recommend it, he's just getting older. snif snif.
Outside, this was happening. See the random grey area with rain? That's where we were . . . the teal to the top is home, and the pink to the bottom is where Tim was at the tournament.
Since we were sitting in a rain zone we could have easily left on our journey home as planned . .. but headed into the 6-8 inches range and driving through ice and snow to get there . . . we opted to just spend another night in the hotel. Except for the fact that Chunky Monkey had Croup and was coughing a lot through the night (thank goodness for the two room suites!!!) and the fact that daddy wasn't with us . . this was the perfect place to be snowed in! Kids swam in the pool, Marisa shopped at the mall, grandma-grandpa and I watched kids and relaxed.
Meanwhile . . . at the tournament in Beckley, WV They drove the van full of girls into a ditch and had to push it out.
They dug their cars out of this in the parking lot. Then after the game dug them out AGAIN when another 4-5 inches fell . . .
Drove through this (on the interstate) to get TO the game . . . and then was snowed into a hotel with no food but hotdogs cooked in a hotel room on a George Foreman grill and hot pockets cooked in a hotel microwave to feed all the kids, parents, and coaches . . . memories for sure.
It's no wonder the girls basketball head coach did this . . . . I think they were all stressed to the max!
Tim came home wet, tired, and sore after pushing so many cars out of ditches and parking spots. We are praising God that we are all under the same roof, safe and sound and looking back on this with laughter and memories. Things certainly could have been much worse.
