Snowpocalypse Part Deux

Monday, December 21, 2009

SO. There are an obscene number of pictures to follow, many thanks to Windows Live Writer. I don’t know if this is a program everyone has and I’m just now finding out about it, but it came with our new computer and has made blogging and uploading pictures significantly easier. J’adore.

Anywho, Saturday was the day of the big dump, but Sunday was all sunshine and fresh, white snow. Officially enter…our snow day. We first drove around the city to check out the damage.

Some roads looked great and everything was beautiful…

And others were not.

My favorite site.

Christmas in Washington.

I love this picture…

An area on Capitol Hill called Eastern Market. Roads. Were. Not. Clear.12 20 09_0783

I then schlepped over to see my favorite kids, the Rileys (these are the frequently mentioned Tucker’s older brother and sister.)

A camera man just happened to find us in the woods having a snowball throwing contest..

I have quite an arm.

“Hit the photographer!!”

And so starts the sledding…

I’m not going to lie, this was all purely for my enjoyment. These kids were pros and I was a first timer.

“I’m not going alone!”

And the ensuing series of pictures is what happens when a 9 year old boy takes the reins.

Sarah and I made a better team.

I’m not sure what he’s doing, but this is pretty typical Ethan… :)

What a threesome.

Objects in the lens may be moving faster than they appear.

And then the snow angels…

12 20 09_0924

Again, the kids were totally humoring me at this point.

12 20 09_0948

Dominate, Sarah.

Ethan thoroughly enjoyed eating the snow…until he got a chunk of mud mixed in.

12 20 09_0956

Me and Sarah.

And THIS is what happens when you try to take a picture with a 9 year old boy…

12 20 09_0958 12 20 09_0960 12 20 09_0961

Failed attempt to push us over.

And that’s it! It’s staying pretty cold here, so the snow’s not going anywhere. The road’s are pretty yucky and everyone’s out trying to make up for the missed shopping time this weekend, so driving around here is not the most fun.

School has been canceled for the remainder of the week (!!), so we’re heading down to Savannah a day early. Sweet Meat G. (That’s for you, Christie.)
