This is Spring?

Wow, it is cold today here in Northern Kentucky!  I can't believe that the Cincinnati Reds have their opening day game and the temperature is only getting to 39 degrees!  Plus besides the wonderful drizzle of rainfall we might get snow flurries!  And they say this is Spring?  Well that's the fun of living in the midwest!  You never know what Mother Nature has planned.  I've been to opening day games where it's been absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the 70's and plenty of sunshine and I've been where they had to stop for a few innings because they couldn't see through the snowfall!  No matter what the weather, opening day here in Cincinnati, Ohio is always a blast.  With the parade, a brand new state-of-the-art scoreboard and the first pitch thrown out by Nick Lachey, what more could you ask for?  At least we're playing the New York Mets and this weird weather won't be new to them.  They always get what we get just a couple days later! At least school spring breaks are still going on and families are heading to warmer climates such as Florida or out west.   A week of sunshine would be wonderful about now.  We're one of those lucky families because not only do we get to head to a warmer climate, but we get to visit our much-missed family as well.  I'm looking forward to relaxing on the beach while watching the kids have a blast in the ocean with my husband.  Me, I'm fine just sitting on the beach!  As much as I love the beach, I don't like the ocean at all!  I can't stand not being able to see what I'm stepping on and the salt - well, that's just got to go! I am looking forward to spending Easter with everyone though!  Mass in the morning then a great day with a neighborhood Easter parade, our own family Easter egg hunt, lots of ham sandwiches, plenty of fatening desserts and a visit from the Easter Bunny!  The kids are going to love it!  The Easter Bunny costume that my sister's neighbor is wearing is perfect! If you haven't got your Easter Bunny costume yet, there's still time at!  Make this Easter one that the kids will always remember!
