What to Do When the Lights Go Out

One very stormy and rainy Friday night in May, David and I decided to go on a date. As we were heading to the movie after our dinner, we got a text from the babysitter saying that our house had lost electricty. What luck?! So instead of a movie we headed back home. The storm was still pretty bad when we got home so our babysitters hung around until the weather and roads cleared up. The only problem was we had to figure out how to entertain the little girls with no electricity (oh yes and no AC). The girls found lots of fun things to do. They made shadow puppets on the wall with the flashlights. And then we built a tent in the family room with a bunch of quilts. Oh and to cool ourselves off, since it was so hot we had ice cream. We also played games in our tent. All of the girls (including the babysitters had a lot of fun)!!

Kaylee made her own little tent on the side just for her.
