Snow???? Seriously? Yes. Snow.....and Sea Monkeys









Seriously my mind can go from one thing to the next. Snow and sea monkeys have nothing to do with each other. It's just that we have both! I woke up this morning to what you see here. This is my back yard. We had 70 degree weather recently, and now we have a winter storm. Did I get my calender wrong or is it supposed to be spring? Well, needless to say the roads were pretty bad. I had planned on taking the kids to the free matinee today. Kung Fu Panda was playing for free. We decided to give it a try. The hubby drove and didn't find it too difficult, but honestly if it were me I'd have turned back. We saw at least 5 cars ditched on the way there with people inside. They all had help already thank goodness. I think perhaps people are in too much of a hurry on these roads!

So after all that we get to the theater and I order our tickets only for them to say they were sold out!!! Uuuugh! I had never had that happen before. So instead of having driven all the way there for no reason we dug into our wallets and spent the last of our cash to take the girls to see Monsters Versus Aliens. It was a pretty good movie and Gabriella's first trip to the movie theater! She seemed very fascinated by it all. She did well too. She watched it and I fed her fruit loops. haha That's her favorite snack.

As for the sea monkeys, well I bought Lexi some for her birthday. There had been probably a hundred in this little tank but they were so tiny you could hardly see them. Now there are only about 5 and they have gotten pretty big, as you an see in my pics. They are fun but really do not seem to last too long.

Now, as for this snow, well I'd like it to go away. I want spring. No more teasing me!! ;)

I remember when I lived in Wisconsin and it seemed like the winters would just drag on and on. I hope spring comes for you soon! We have been enjoying sunny weather with temps in the seventies out here in California.

Snow? Yikes! Our weekend started off with spring temperatures. I was wearing shorts, a polo shirt and flip flops until I went to bed. The next day was the same. By this morning I was freezing. Spring is just so unpredictable.

Have a terrific day Sandi. :)

Well coming from someone who never sees snow, it's beautiful.

And I think the sea monkeys eat each other...

Brrr! Bummer!

I thought with moving down to NC, I would be leaving the snow behind. But we had one of those weeks a couple of weeks ago, with nearly 70 degrees one day, and a 6 inch snow less than a week later. But it is a rare event around here. In any case, I'm with you, bring on the Spring and Summer already!

The sea monkey thing reminds me of the Southpark episode with the sea monkeys. Southpark cracks me up!
