I was sick of bad situations and sick of lying flat on my back. So on Sunday we all hopped into the car and went for a drive. It's been a long time since I have been near the water. Frank, kids, and even our Chihuahua's went for a nice long drive around Lake St. Clair. We ended up at a park where I have done alot of fishing in my days, it's also a very nice boat launch. The kids had a ball playing on the ice.
These dots that you see are Darin, Amber and Frank going out to talk to some ice fishing person. The gentleman said he caught alot of small perch out there. It was a nice day out but the wind hurt. I stayed in the car, i did not want to risk slipping and re injuring my back.
This is set as my new desktop background. It's absolutely beautiful! It's also The 5th picture of the 5th file on my computer. Awhile back I was tagged by T at It Matters To Me, to post and talk about this picture so here it is.
I was standing outside watching the kids play on the ice and looked to the sky to see such a beautiful sunset, the tree, the tall grass, the snow and ice, it captured a wonderful moment!
Darin in all his glory!
We left that park and went to another park closer to home and where the coast guard is. Frank and Darin were playing king of the hill. That's the fallen King Darin at the bottom of the hill. lol
He has risen. :)

Darin and Amber in a very well lit, watch-a-call-it (the word is escaping me at the moment)lol it's still pretty none the less. It also had a very pretty bridge but it was to dark to get a descent pic over there.
So this is how we busted out of our house and cabin fever! Can't wait till it thaws and we are fishing and doing anything outside! We have been getting warmer over here in Michigan. we have been in the 40's and from what I here the 50's are around the corner. Can't wait to open windows and air the house out. Can't wait to put the winter coats away and the boots. Don't get me wrong, I do like winter, but I LOVE Spring and Fall!
Thanks for all the well wishes and the comments about Frank's grandmother. It was a big shock for Frank. He LOVED her dearly! The lady lived to be 90 years old, and had many times in the hospital, many surgeries and near the end was pretty much bed ridden.
