I love spending time at the lake and I love the view I have especially early in the morning as the sun is rising over the horizon. I captured this beauty with my iphone.

Ellie started 4th grade early last week. It was a bittersweet day for me that was made easier through the photos that were sent by my husband and son. It was the first first day of school that I wasn’t there. I started working on a project out of town. My husband captured this enthusiastic start to her first day of 4th grade.

Ellie learned to bake Grandma Penny’s banana bread, the best banana bread in the whole world!
Ellie and I had an adventure on the train. She saw Minnehaha Falls for the first time and it was roaring! Then we continued to downtown Minneapolis where she was fascinated with revolving doors.
4th of July always includes sparklers around here:
I rode in the Tour of Saints bike ride with my Dad, brother and nephew.
Made lots of snow cones for Ellie and her friends on hot days!
Anna got her drivers permit! Look out!
And I went tubing on the Mississippi River at Dana and Dan’s 40th birthday bash!
It was a cold morning the Sunday before Thanksgiving and it was the one day of the season that the All Stars were scheduled to appear on the plaza before the game. It was also the day after our first snowfall. After getting myself mostly ready (my A-team was also scheduled to perform on the plaza) and then finding out that due to the cold the old ladies were staying home. At least the rest of my team stayed home where it was warm. I still had to go out with Anna. I put on some warmer clothes and grabbed a blanket then headed downtown. And it was cold!
Here is the team performing:
