For the record - Metro Detroit has had 35+ inches of snow JUST in January. Snowiest month in history. History.

On Saturday we loaded the kids into Tyson's new car (GM perk!) and headed into the city for the day. We were lucky Ty has a Yukon - because we needed it! The roads were a mess and we saw lots of accidents along the way. When we got downtown we parked at the RenCen and took the People Mover (that's really it's name) to Cobo for the Auto Show.
And, of course, no trip to Detroit is complete without a Coney Dog.
We had a fun day and everyone was pretty tired when we got home. We're looking forward to warmer weather and the Detroit Tiger's baseball season.

To say that we are tired of winter...would be an understatement. We are SO tired of winter. And every time I look outside and see more snow falling (or the thermometer dropping well below zero) I cringe. Needless to say, Spring will be a welcome change.
I introduced Jack to A & W root beer today. He's a fan. I'm a fan too - I forgot how yummy it is!
We'll be staying warm this weekend...lots of indoor activities.

Jack and Josie checked out some posters for upcoming kid's movies. Jack has his eyes on a few.
And since we've been to the movie - Josie is still loving it. We've watched this video a few times:
And then we found this 9 year old girl who sings the same song. I'm so jealous of anyone who has an amazing voice.

You know what's awesome? Friends who call your husband at work to remind him it may be a good idea to bring a cake home. Thanks, Brooke!
Tyson was kind of in the dog house on Wednesday. It's not really his fault - but he's traveling for work again. And this time he's in my all-time favorite place - Bloomington. (yes, I'd probably choose a trip to Bloomington over Vegas.)

We had fun and Jack is still obsessed with PLAYING hockey...but he hasn't mentioned going to another game. Honestly, if he sticks with baseball - I'd be happy.

Out of the blue - he has a new obsession with hockey. We don't watch hockey. We actually turn the channel when it comes on ESPN. But somehow he has managed to discover it. Damn you, Michigan. The only person I know - who is happy about this is Carrie Norton.
And finally, after being gone since early Sunday morning - Tyson surprised me and came home a day early! Perhaps the text from the ditch was his motivation. Whatever it was - we are SOOOO happy to have him home again. Above you'll see Jack pretending he's on an airplane going to Florida. He read my mind.

Then he said, "Mommy - I want to kiss you." And he licked my face. Four year old humor is so mature. (Why can I picture this happening throughout his life? I'm pretty sure he will always find this funny.)
Also - we send GET WELL SOON love to Grandpa Jerry (who is having minor back surgery today). And I'm celebrating the fact that school is back in session! High fives to the moms out there who have been off their schedule for WAY too long. Get to learning' kids.
