Isaac suggested that we take Lucy on a trip to see the snow. The day was perfect: MOPS in the morning, nap, SNOW! It was a great plan with one fatal flaw: we told her we were taking her to the snow before her nap. Naturally, she did not nap. It worked out well, though, because we got there at the warmest point of the afternoon.
Lucy does well in the car -- for about 20 minutes, then the requests start rolling in: she "needs" Elsa ("Let it Go" on the stereo), she "needs" to eat, she needs to be out of the car, basically. To keep her busy, we have a boogie board that lives in the car for such occasions. It usually buys us about 20 minutes of happy toddler, which may not seem like much, but is an eternity in toddler-land.
