Hurricane Irene

In preparation for Irene, we stocked Vince up on PUZZLES. This kid is obsessed!!! Here's 14 (we had already done the other 7 before Irene got here). We started in on these first thing Saturday morning while it was rainy and nasty outside.

Of course, we had to sing the corresponding song when we finished (as usual, I didn't catch the first part of Wheels on the Bus).

Later in the day, Tony and Vince built a model airplane and jeep. I'm really not sure who was more excited.
We were lucky and managed to keep power until about 9pm. Being that the safer place to be during the storm is downstairs, we all had a "campout" in the living room. I slept on the couch, Vince slept on his mattress we brought downstairs, and poor daddy got the hardwood floor. Vince was excited b/c he got his own little flashlight for our "adventure" (its the little things, right?). Surprisingly, he slept through the entire night. Again, we were lucky because our power came back on around 9am....YAY!!!

While we had Vince's bed in the living room today, Tony showed off his mad kid-like skills and made an awesome fort.
I'm not sure Vince enjoyed it....what do you think?
A fort AND slide? Heck yeah, he was in love.

So, that's how we spent our quality time with Irene. We were some of the lucky ones. Hope everyone else fared ok. If anybody needs a hot shower, come on over :)
