Evening Stroll

This week was rough. The constant rain and humidity also made it rough. But we survived. The rain has stopped. The humidity has dropped. Ahhhh deep breaths!

Last night John and i walked around downtown Huron and along the pier. In town they had a band which lots of people were gathered. Bikes lined the lake front and a crowd of lawn chairs filled the area. The air smelled of boardwalk food.

The pier was busy with locals and tourists. The bars were busy and they too had live music. The pier was covered in debris from all the rain. The river leading out to the lake was like a wave pool. People were still walking with their family and pets. Some brave souls even rode their bikes and scooters around all the sticks.

We enjoyed the peacefulness of the sunset and people watching. Cedar point was so easy to see in the night sky.

Sometimes it’s nice to just take a walk, breath fresh air, and remember all we are blessed with!

Sunset/Sunrise Fishing

My niece, Cally, wanted to fish before the fireworks! My husband and brother set her rod up and she fished off the pier in Mitiwanga. It was a beautiful sunset and they were the perfect silhouettes in my photos! She didn’t catch anything but wow is she getting so good at casting. Super proud of her!

Did i really wake up at 4:45am to fish!? You bet i did because it was with my 3 favorite guys! It was a beautiful sunrise but i was focused on fishing. I caught a baby walleye and my dad caught a monster catfish. Man did that thing not want to get in the boat but my dad fought hard and won! I couldn’t believe how many fish were jumping at the top of the water. I felt like the boat was surrounded by dolphins!

We had lots of fun!!!!!

Ok it’s not the biggest but it’s the cutest!

Fake summer

Wow has Mother Nature been kind to northern Ohio this week. Mid 60’s everyday is a welcomed break from winter. My nanny kids and i have been outside all day for 3 days straight and it has been WONDERFUL!!!! Walks, playgrounds and backyard playing has occupied all our free time. The have slept great and so has their nanny!

We found the first flower of 2021!

On Tuesday night i took my trio group outside to twirl and work on their routine. It was so nice and the sunset in the background was breathtaking!

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!
