The least fun snow day in all the land

As I'm typing, I'm watching the swirly snow coming down outside the window---I can see a handful of kids with some grown up making a big snow creature on the rooftop playground across the street. I had big plans for today! If you know me, you know that I love Love LOVE snow :)
So yesterday Maya and I checked the cabinets, went to the store and made sure that we had all of the fun stuff necessary for a snow day--hot chocolate, waffle mix, strawberries, and heavy cream (for whipped cream). Yum, yum, yum. We would have a big waffle brunch, play in the snow, maybe take a nice nap, and then play in the snow some more.

I woke up, ready to go. Maya woke up, cranky, clingy and sad. And Dave woke up, and threw up (over and over). Sigh.

Poor Dave is really sick. Maya and I went out for a walk, which was the only time today that she wasn't crying (she might be getting sick too).

(that's Maya in the stroller, watching a pigeon party)

When we got home, I made her lunch and my breakfast. I was so excited to enjoy my waffle. I feel the need to state, for the record, that I've made waffles many times before . . . but it seemed exactly right that today my waffle came out like this:

(PS-I still ate it)
