Frozen On Ice & Weekend Recap

Just another manic Monday!

It's not even noon yet and I feel like it's been such a long day, but a productive one! This week is Sophia's last week of school and I should have done some errands yesterday but it was Sunday and nobody wants to do a bunch of stuff on Sunday, right?! 

So this week is going to be filled with crafting, putting together gifts, and other last week of school shenanigans. 

This weekend was a more relaxing weekend than the past couple ones.

Friday night my mom and I took the girls to see Frozen on Ice. It was about two hours long with a 15 minute intermission in between. When tickets went on sale a year ago, I didn't buy them. I honestly thought the whole Frozen thing would be over by then. Then Stonyfield yogurt offered 50% off tickets, so I bought some!

Turns out, Frozen is still very popular and Sophia was excited to go see Elsa & Anna. Nelpe was all like "yeah whatever, give me popcorn". 
We have been to a Disney on Ice Production before that incorporated a lot of different Disney movies and characters, but this one was was exclusively Frozen. 
The girl's were engaged most the time but Nelps started getting antsy the last 15 minutes. The songs are what kept her interested for so long.I think all the good songs are at the beginning anyways. ;) The cutest part of the whole thing was hearing all the kids sing along to "Let It Go" and hearing the screams when Elsa came on. Why is everyone Team Elsa? A little girl behind us yelled out "It's all Anna's fault!" when Elsa went bizerk and turned the town into ice. I kinda felt bad for Anna! LOL
While the girls appreciated the singing the most, I appreciated the skating. I found it most appealing to watch the skater play clumsy, awkward Anna, and do it with grace. It was overall a great show and I'm glad we got to experience it (for 50% off).

Saturday was a boat day for us. If you know about us and boating, you know there is rarely a time when SOMETHING doesn't go wrong. We thought we were done with all these rookie mishaps when we sold our first boat. But, no. We got to the dock at 9:30, put the boat in the water, and it doesn't start. We switched out the batteries, jumped it, nothing worked. Turns out both our batteries on board were completely drained. Luckily we were right next to a marina and able to buy two new batteries in no time. Fortunately there was also a park near by where we took the girls to run around and play while Angelo and Jay (brother) got the boat ready. We finally got on the water around 11:30. It's always something with these darn boats! :) We live and learn with each boat outing. 

Once we got on the water, the day was great! We are currently in love with boating over to Egmont Key because the water is unbelievable! 

Sunday was a day of rest for some and work for others. I'm part of that "work" group. I brought my computer home from the office on Friday to catch up on some things. Normally when I say I'll get stuff done over the weekend, it rarely happens. This time I actually got stuff done! A bunch of data entry and time consuming lame stuff. 

I hope everyone had a great weekend! 

Great debate over the weekend: Is Sunday the beginning or end of the week? Technically if you look at a calendar Sunday is the beginning of the week. But our culture treats it like the end of the week. What do you think?



  1. Such a good Mom to take them to Frozen on Ice!! :)

  2. Wasn't Frozen on Ice wonderful?! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the show too.
