We have been so blessed as a family that we have emergency plans in place. The kids know what to do in storms and in fire emergencies and it helps as a parent to know that we are doing something right. We also have a box of candles and matches for when lights go off, food storage and have prepared ourselves with first aid and CPR training. People always laugh at us when we talk about emergency preparedness but you will never see us running to the grocery store before an ice storm or sitting in the dark during a storm. Those of you familiar with my church know that Latter-day Saints like to be prepared for everything and I am thankful that we have heeded that advice.
Even if you are not a member of my church I would encourage you to take the steps to prepare for emergencies. Here are a few good links
My thoughts and prayers are with anyone that has been in the path of these storms and floods.

You guessed it, Chuck E Cheese! The place that is overcrowded and where Mom gets stuck watching the table and food while everyone else has fun. No, it really is fun. The kids had a blast and they earned enough tickets to get plenty of cheap plastic toys. We did have one scary moment when I realized that the blong curly head that I was watching was not Link but some random kid and we had to find him. As you can see above we found him and then my heart started back up. Here are a few more pics.
We then went home for a game night and to recover. It was a fun day. We spent the rest of the weekend just working around the house together, playing games, baking and having a great time together. I hope all of you had a great time too.
