What to Do When it Snows in St. Louis?

So you got yourself stuck inside with several inches of snow outside? I can understand you not wanting to conquer traffic or shoveling the driveway for a few hours. We got lucky with the snow coming on a day most government workers and schools have off, President’s Day, but what could you possibly do with your kids??? Go sledding of course! Which is exactly what I did with my little girl. We had so much fun sledding right in our own backyard. We went out twice, once in the morning and then again in the afternoon. After the first time outside I thought… “Hey, I should get out my GoPro!” Which is exactly what I did for our second round of sledding. It was so much fun to get outside and play in the snow. Normally it would only be a 10-15 minute playtime before Abby would want to go back inside. This time we were outside for close to an hour or more each session. The snow wasn’t snowman capable but it was definitely sled worthy.

Happy Valentines Day!

Valentines-Day

This Valentine’s Day can be made extra special if you follow these simple tips.

1) If you do not plan on buying your wife anything, at least make her a card. She might not show she cares, but I bet she does.

2) Clean up the house. Show that you care by doing a chore you usually don’t do.

3) Tell your significant other how much you love them and often.

For me this Valentine’s Day was great. My wife and kids got me a nice card and a cool Harley Quinn Fabrikation. I got my wife some Cardinals tickets since she loves doing things together as a family and I also treated her and my daughter to getting their nails done.

Frozen In The Eyes of a Dad

frozen-geekFrozen has been a thing in my house now for well over a year. At a glance you might not notice all of the Frozen merchandise my daughter has convinced me and her mother to buy. I guarantee it is there. If you open up the closet you’ll find Frozen Band-Aids, chap stick, hair clips, earrings, towels, and soap. In the fridge and pantry you’ll find the yogurt and fruit snacks. Don’t forget about the shirts, dresses, crowns, shoes, shirts, and socks… the-must-have-socks… The books, crayons, markers, posters, coloring books, and toys. Oh the toys, the most sought after toys. We’re still looking for the Frozen Lego set (let me know if you got an extra one). But we got the barbie, magi-clips, castle, busy book, etc, etc… I have seen and heard this movie more times than I can count. The movie and songs are not bad at all, but I wouldn’t mind watching something different instead.

I cannot imagine how much money I have given Disney in exchange for Frozen stuff. All of it with pretty much the exact same design. You know the one.

In all honesty though, I don’t mind. Especially when this movie has helped my daughter learn to sing, I believe it has also helped her open up and not be as shy. Plus, I get to capture moments like this.
