They were so excited! Dax actually said that when he saw snow on the mountains on the way to school that he knew I'd be coming to get him!
So, I headed to the mountains with Tiki, Dax and Gabby (and Baylor). The weather was beautiful and the drive was peaceful. We to to Molas pass and had a blast throwing snowballs and laughing. When it was time to leave, we realized that the keys had been locked in the car. Not great.
Thankfully we have AAA and thankfully there were several very generous people around at the time. One guy gave us food, water and THREE wonderful coats to wear while we waited. He left us with the coats and his contact info so we could ship them back. Another couple let the kids warm up in their car for about 30 minutes and then gave us blankets and towels and another coat when it was time for them to leave. They are from Durango, so we'll be returning those today.
It was an adventure. It was a great lesson in helping others. It got cold and we huddled together under the coats and blankets with Baylor on top of us trying to keep warm while we waited more than two hours for AAA.
So, the day won't long be forgotten, but I have a feeling they'll only remember the locked out part and not the fun in the snow part.
