Still Winter

Despite a rather mild winter so far, we were reminded that it is still winter when it snowed earlier this week.

Remy Turns Five!

Remy turned five last week--a whole hand! He chose salad, pizza and milk for his birthday supper, and chocolate cake and frosting for his cake.

Full Moon

Last week, I had just picked Jackson up from basketball practice at around 5:30 p.m., right when the sun is setting and the moon rising. As we headed home, the moon was huge and had an orange tint, so I stopped home quick to grab my camera. I drove to the marina, which even though it's only a couple of minutes away, seemed to take forever because the light was fading fast. The photographs I took were nowhere near as beautiful as seeing the moon over Lake Superior, but I still like the reflection of the moon on the water.

Shades of Gray

On days when I manage to escape to the grocery store without taking any kids with me, I like to take my camera out and see what I can capture. I recently explored the shores of Lake Superior in Two Harbors on a gray day when ice was hanging from rocks along the shoreline. It was so gray that many of these pictures look like black and white photos on first glance.

I found myself most fascinated by icicles dripping down from rocks and branches.
