Saturday morning was bitter cold, with arctic winds. We decided to take everyone on a walk regardless. So of course everyone had to be bundled up. About 5 minutes into the walk Jeremiah and decided it was too dang cold and our hats weren't blocking out that wind. So, we cut things short. What might have taken 90 minutes was abridged to 20. During that 20 minutes, Sarah fell asleep. Usually she wakes up when I take the backpack off, but this time she didn't. So, I decided not to poke the beast. After all, they say it's best to let sleeping babies lie. Or, in this case, remain bundled up into an unrecognizable mass while propped upright in a backpack. Whatever, she seemed content.

An hour later, she still was.

And still, another hour later...we periodically checked for the sound of breath.Finally, 3 hours after passing out, Sarah awoke in good spirits with a big red blotch on her face where she'd been resting it on the backpack. She was ready for food.

Sarah was in that 'bundle'?

Are you sure?

You can hardly recognize her, or even know that a 'human body' was in that 'bundle'...

I can see the headline; "Bad Mommy Snaps Pix While Hypothermia Sets In". It kind of reminds me of the day your canoe got trapped under a fallen tree in fast water. The current locked the boat against the tree and treatened to kill you. I wasn't there, but I know because Dad stood 30 feet away snapping pictures.

BTW what is bitter cold in Georgia? 50ยบ?

It was 28 and gusty that morning. It's the gusty part that got us. The canoe incident wasn't as dramatic as you'd think. The water was pretty low and I had on a life preserver. Took some doin' to get that canoe up, though.

Whatever you need to tell yourself. Dad tried to kill you, and his weapons were a canoe and a 35mm camera.

I'd have left her there, too! Why spoil a good nap? :)
