Piper woke me up at 5:30am on Tuesday morning, which is pretty typical. I decided that since we were awake and the boys were not, that we should get our grocery shopping done first thing. I mistakenly assumed that Sprouts Market opened at 6:30am, so that's when we arrived. In reality, the store didn't open until 7am and during that half hour that Piper and I waited in the parking lot, it began to snow. By the time we finally checked out with our loot, it had snowed an inch.
Miguel and Salem gleefully greeted us upon our return home and we all settled into our snow day. Piper was exhausted after our eventful morning and fell deep asleep for her nap. Salem was so excited about the new snack choices that he threw on his super hero cape and mask and "flew" around the house while munching. My favorite part of super hero Salem is when he shouts the cutest mispronunciation of his super name, 'Stupid Man' and then makes flying sounds. It makes my heart smiles every time.
Salem LOVED flying down the hill and Miguel continually erupted in laughter as he watched. The boys played outside until their fingers were numb and then they came in to warm up. While Salem napped, I made a pineapple flax carrot cake with coconut and walnuts, which I served with homemade greek yogurt, blackberries and a drizzle of honey. Yum!
