Fast forward to Friday evening/Saturday morning- the weather man had been forecasting a light dusting of snow to occur in our area on Friday night into Saturday morning. It started snowing on Friday night and when we woke up on Saturday morning there was probably 1-2 inches of snow on the ground, yet the roads were clear. Pretty minor compared to the snow showers we have gotten previously this winter. So we carried on with the birthday party as planned. The party was scheduled to begin at 11 and by 11:15 we had a room full of 15 toddlers but a surprisingly absent yoga teacher. Stressing out and having no clue what we were going to do with all these energetic children, I froze. Luckily my wonderful sister Megan stepped up and led the kids in yoga moves, several rounds of head, shoulders, knees, and toes, and the hokie pokie. I cannot even express how grateful I was to have her there and I think she must have been a child entertainer in her previous life.
By noon it was pretty apparent that the yoga lady wasn't going to show up but the party carried on. Long story (and I do apologize for the length of this story) short, the yoga lady didn't show up due to the road conditions (stated by her). Funny thing is that every other guest invited made it to the party despite these hazardous road conditions (large dose of sarcasm there). Anywho, the party ended up being fun and it was a great chance for me to practice taking pictures of children other than my own. So while the party didn't turn out as I had planned, it was still great that Conner and Elizabeth were surrounded by their friends, Papou and Grandma Hatzis, Grannie Elaine, and Auntie May-May to celebrate their memorable 2nd birthday. Next year I think we'll just go to Chuckie Cheese.
