The Day the Lights Went Out

Babies napping, boys are playing with their trains, and I am trying to clean, do dishes, laundry, and pay bills online all in the same breath when BAM.....the power goes out. It is a rainy cloudy day so the house is dark, dishes and laundry shut off, no computer so I can't pay bills, so I just played! We got out flashlights and built a big train track, then we read books, and even made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the floor of the living room because that had the most light. When the power finally went back on two hours later we all looked at each other and I thought we should shut off the power more often!
