Snow Vacation

Reese and I have been on Snow Vacation this week. We have been out of school all week and have been chilling around the house and trying to keep from going crazy. We made snow angels and reading books. A lot of books. A lot of a lot of books.
Today we went to Zona Rosa to play at the indoor playground they have there. This was a life saver for us. Reese played on all the spongy-slicky-rubberyish animals until she couldn't play anymore.

She watched the kids go down the slide and then when they cleared out, she went down herself. She loved it! She loved seeing all the other kids and just watched and watched. She didn't mind when they got in her way or when they accidentally bumped her. She just took it in stride and played for an hour.

While we were there, two funny stories happened that I really have to share. The first was this adorable little boy with a cute little sweater vest on. Anyway, he ran over to Dustin and said, "That boy says he is Batman. He is lying, I am Batman and there canNOT be two Batmans!" And off he went. It was just so funny to say to a complete stranger.

Then, there was another boy, who was a typical boy, really not overly onery or anything, but his mother was on him like white on rice. At one point, as she was getting her coat on, you heard her scream, "NOOOOOOOO!" We looked over and all you could see was the little boys pom pon on his hat going right up the escalator. I had to laugh out loud, only because we will be there one day, probably sooner than later.

I'm happy to report that Reese was not at all anxious while we were there. She would've been just fine had we left and never returned, although that didn't happen. She took off and played, went up to people and looked at babies. She had a blast and I was very proud of her adventurous nature today. (Especially when she stole some Ritz Bitz crackers from the lady while her son was on the escalator.)
