Nanny Fun!

This was the first craft that all 3 kids could participate in. We made a few adaptations for each kid based on their skills but overall they did the same activity. It was fun, but simple, and we love decorating the house!

We also stopped by the park to see if we could find any “signs” of spring. You see yesterday it was warm and in the mid 50’s and today is was snowing and in the low 30’s. We are soooo ready for spring. Here are some things we found that made us confident spring is just around the corner 😉

Things I’ve learned about ice fishing!

* a pink rod is a must….you might not catch more fish but you will look super cute

*a lot of women and children ice fish…..more than i see during the summer

* sharp blades and the correct size blades on an auger make drilling a hole much easier…..also let the boys do that because their shoulders burn the next day 😂

*you must be willing to pee in a bucket

*you are sitting for long periods of time, so bring some snacks!

Ice fishing

Today i tried ice fishing. John has been ice fishing many times, but this was a new adventure for me. Wow it was really fun. When he asked me if i wanted to go i said “yes but I’m scared!” That feeling didn’t change until i was walking up to the ice. I couldn’t believe how many people were on the ice. There were men, woman and children everywhere. I immediately felt so much better. I also felt so much better when i looked in the hole and saw just how thick the ice actually was. Overall it was an amazing adventure and i knew i was in good hands. I look forward to doing it again. Honestly this is my idea of a fun weekend and i truly enjoy doing outdoor activities with my husband! ‘
