Let's call this one: Ally Rocks Again!!!

We are here in NYC. Our day began last night with the snow. Ally was very excited about the snow and the trip. We are pretty sure she did not get to sleep until around 11:00. The electricity kept going out throughout the night, and each time it woke Ally up; I think we all got about 4 hours of sleep. We woke up at 5:30 this morning, and by 5:50 Daddy was shoveling the foot+ of heavy, wet snow. By 6:20 Ally had taken her shot (which she is doing awesome with) and we were on the road with Grammy and Grampa. The drive to South Station was slow going, but we got there. Then we waited, and waited and waited. Our train was supposed to leave at 8:40. By 10:15, they told us trees were down in Connecticut and they were not sure they would even be able to run the trains today. Daddy went up to the bus station and got us 3 tickets for the 11:00 bus to China Town. Of course there was an accident on the highway, so we didn't get to the city until 3:45. We had some trouble finding a taxi, but we were able to make it to the Ronald McDonald House by 4:15. It was a long day, and Ally rocked it out. She napped a bit on the bus, was VERY excited as we started to pull into the city, and took the whole 3 hours at South Station pretty well. Even though we were starving (as we had only had breakfast) we let Ally play for a bit, and then headed out for some food. Ally and Daddy are currently making tiaras, and we are going to head down to the dinner that is being provided soon, so we can get dessert.

Tomorrow we need to be at the hospital for 7:45 AM. I'll update tomorrow afternoon or evening about how the day went.
