snow day adventure | part 1





Our snowy weekend adventure started off a little drab. We woke up in Ft. Inn to nothing but rain (insert disappointed Mike face here)...but kept seeing on the news that up above Greenville & the mountains were getting hammered with snow. Work was canceled for Mikey (hooray!!), so we scooped up the boys from his 'rents house & headed to find some snow! 

Honestly, once we drove past the Woodruff Rd. exit on the hwy the scene changed drastically. The roads were starting to accumulate an icy mixture and tree branches were already drooping. We checked on the white house, grabbed lunch at Pete's and headed towards Caesar's Head. The boys were champs while the drive up the mountain took hours. I brought along a few snow day essentials (peanut butter m&m's and sour gummy worms) which seemed to help keep them occupied once they started getting antsy (biggest boy included). We'd also made promises of playing at the top once we arrived...little did we know it would be unbearable! We made it to the entrance of Caesar's Head State Park & decided to pull off the road for romping in the parking lot. Once we got out of the car, mine & Mike's hands immediately started stinging from the raw wind whipping around & the boys panicked. Like screaming, crying, tears running, snot dripping panic. (The following events may qualify us as bad parents..) We proceeded to put on their snow suits (over their regular clothes) and tried to convince them that it would be fun to play in the snow ... after a couple of snapped pictures, continuous crying and looks of "what are you doing to me?" Mike & I decided to call it and head back down the mountain. We laughed with each other & decided that though it was short lived, it was definitely worth it!
