Last week we had a major storm system blow in, wind, rain, snow, hail. We had it all. It was crazy considering it was the last week in April. But we lost all power around 5:oo pm and it was off until about 10:20 pm. So, we had to get creative with the kids. Ryan picked up pizza on his way home from work. Then we decided to built a fort. It was pretty cool, so cool in fact that Batman and Batgirl used it as their hideout as they tried to track down the Joker - the fiend who cut the power.
The sad thing is that we only had 2 little pocket flashlights, Finley's tool light, and Ryan's little LED camping light. Needless to say I went to Walmart the next morning and we are now the owners of 2 new BIG flashlights, 3 camping lanterns and lots of batteries to power them. We'll definitely be a little more prepared next time.
It was so much fun, that we might do this again - lights out & all!
