Okay so I go to both stores and come out with a pack of socks. At least they can put something on their hands. As I'm walking to the car I see Emily standing in between the two cars and the kids are playing around. I think "Good to see everything is okay." (Not that Emily is not totally competent at watching children trapped in cars. She is fully competent. I trust her implicitly with the life of my daughter. There were however 4 kids 4 years old and under. Any number of things could have gone wrong) Then she tells me a story. She's sitting in her car nursing her baby and all of a sudden looks back and sees one of the parking lot security guards writing down my license plate number. She jumps up out of the car--mind you she is parked right next to me--and starts talking to him. Apparently a number of people, including cart gatherers and customers saw Boogers and her friend in the car and thought I left them there. I guess they were hanging out the window yelling my name and people started to get concerned. Luckily Emily caught the situation before it got out of hand and explained that I was in the store, one of those kids were hers and she had the situation under control. I laughed about it as I drove away, but if she hadn't seen that guard, imagine how different the situation would be!
Okay, here are the pictures:
I don't have pictures of everything, Emily took a lot of video so I'll just link to her blog when she posts it, but her is a quick rundown of what we did.
First we buuilt a snowman, but Claire knocked it over. Then the girls just played. Later a family let us have their little snow "sled". I use the term loosely, because it was just a flat piece of plastic. And lastly another family let us ride on their tube with them. That's where the girls had the most fun.
We left when everyone was wet and frozen through, but it was a fun day!
