One Last Blast Of Winter

I may be jinxing things with that title, but hopefully this will be the last round of real winter weather until…well…next winter.  We live in Minnesota though, so I can’t pretend we won’t have more cold temperatures and, yes, more snow.  Hopefully just not as much as we have had over the past few days.

After waking up yesterday to see what had become a winter wonderland, I made a small detour on my way to work to enjoy one last blast of winter.

I took these next photos on my way home at lunchtime.  Another small detour.

Before Nightfall

We spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon at my Mom’s house this weekend. Temperatures in the 60’s in early March. What could be better?

Sophia and I ventured outside during the last few minutes of daylight to take a few photos and check out the sunset.

In honor of what would have been my Dad’s 87th birthday, here are a few of our photos from the journey.

At The Cabin

The weather was beautiful for Memorial Weekend at the cabin.  Sophia and I went on a nature walk to see if we could find anything interesting to photograph.  I think she was hoping for fox, turtles or eagles, but this is what we found.

We saw these crazy kids jumping in the frigid water when we got back from our walk.
