Crazy, Crazy Weather ~

What a weather roller coaster it has been.  These were taken yesterday about 10:30 am.  By 4:30 the majority of it had melted and by this morning, not a flake remained.  Today's temps were near 60.  They've begun to fall and we are supposed to be in the low 20's with high winds tonight.  WELCOME to Ohio!

Yesterday Jake and I headed to Disney on Ice in Cleveland.  It has been at least {big gulp} 45 years (I'm how old???) since I've taken the train downtown.  It was actually much easier driving half way, hopping on the train and avoiding the hassles of finding a place to park ~ cheaper, too :)

This year all the stories were princess stories.  Many young girls arrived in their princess outfits.  Too cute!
What a racket!  $12.00 cotton candy (with a Styrofoam crown) or a snow cone (in a plastic character cup) or a bargain priced box of popcorn for only $5.00.  $20.00 t-shirts and flashlights.  You get the picture.  I got off really easy.  I had Jake bring his Christmas money and gave him the choice of buying something there or saving it to buy a Nintendo game.  He opted to save his money for a game and didn't bug me to buy another flash light to go with the one from last year that he never plays with . . . lol!
We did have a good time and I'm so happy he's still at the age where spending time with grandma is great fun.

Wishing for spring!
Pug hugs :)

Wow! Looks like you and Jake had a blast!
My brother who lives in MN said he saw some people ice fishing on a lake and half a mile down the road there were more people fishing in boats! This is really really strange weather!!

Jake is adorable. I remember when I took my daughter to see Disney on Ice 18 years ago. It was so much fun. And Sesame Street on Ice, too.

Nothing better than spending the day with your grandson who adores you. It's great that he made the choice of saving his money for something that he will have more use of than impulse buying. The show looks great.

Stay warm and safe. JB

Did you wear your princess dress Lauren and if so, why no pictures?? Looks like great fun.

What a cutie! One of my grandmothers would sent my kids money at Christmas & we used the money one year (with her encouragement) to take the kids to see Toy Story on Ice. They LOVED it! But yeah--the price on toys there is ridiculous!
