Sat. Feb. 7th.-
OMG, the weather has been so crazy here this week. Only a couple of days since we got blasted with 11 inches of snow and -15 below zero weather and today its 52 degrees out! The huge piles of snow are melting and it looks like we have had a month of non stop rain! Everything is flooded, but I love it! Makes you feel like Spring is in the air, and your feet move just a bit more bouncy! LOL
Today picture is of the grandaughters ( Kristee,Ashley(with Kyree,(great grandaughter) who refused to stand sill long enough to be in the picture), and Kelcee) on a shopping trip to the Birchwood Mall in Ft. Gratiot, Mi., which is really only down the road about 5 miles from where we live. Not a real big Mall, but you have to work with what you have. It does have a Sears, Penny's, Target, etc. and some of the more popular stores the youngin's like, like Hot Topic's, Deb's, etc. Also has several restaurants, which are all over priced, but still pretty busy all the time. Our Mall is such, that its like a big shopping plaza, with several stores and restaurants not attached to the main building, like Red Lobster, Home Depot, Pier 1, Olive Garden(which is my favorite, cause I love their House Salad). Of course there are several of the bigger chain stores in the close vicinity(almost within walking distance), like Meijers, JoAnn's,Hobby Lobby, Best Buy, Lowes, Kohls, Walmart,Toy's R Us, etc.
I can remember when I was a young adult, in my 20's, the whole area was nothing but woods, not a thing in site anywhere, except for a go cart track and a kiddie land with little rides, out in the middle of nowhere.! Wow, who would have thought.
