how to exhaust your two year old and yourself

i think it takes just as much time to get ready to go outside to play in the snow as time spent playing in the snow. on one of the ridiculously cold days last week, we braved the cold in an effort to exhaust finn enough that he would quickly pass out the moment he came inside and sleep the entire afternoon. i definitely felt that way before we even made it out the door. finn excitedly jumped in the ice-topped snow, which completely supported his weight. i kept waiting for him to run across the snow, hit a weak spot, then vanish under the snow. twenty minutes later, the single digit weather hit us all and we scurried back inside, drank hot cocoa, and passed out on the couch. mission accomplished.
