I felt like i was in a scene from the Lion King!

As i was coaching tonight i couldn’t stop looking out the window. The sunset was breathtaking. I had to pause practice and snap a picture. This is what happens when the coach is also a photographer!

Sometimes you just need to stop what you are doing and take in what Mother Nature has to offer. With all the snow and gray days we have had lately, this was one of those moments. My twirlers loved it also and it was a nice moment!

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!

Grab the sunglasses Ohio!

What is this bright thing in the sky?

It was FINALLY a beautiful day in northern Ohio! John and i took the girls to the metroparks for a nice 2 mile walk. We could have walked forever but we had other things going on this afternoon. The sun doesn’t come out much these days so we had to make sure we took advantage of it!

I don’t love the creatures that live here but this is a beautiful nest!
It’s a great day when you can finally see your shadow!
