Oh Canada!

Hannah and I took the girls on an international vacation. There is some beautiful country and delicious food just to the north. We ate at the Marilyn Monroe tribute restaurant Norma Jean's and saw the frozen Kakabeka Falls.

Steve Malkovich

Ever seen the movie Being John Malkovich? Crawling through the darkness slopping in mud for a sneak peek through John Malkovich's eyes. We experienced something similar last summer, Hannah and I talked the girls into crawling through a drainage culvert. It was summer and the tunnel was dry, sophie went first followed by penelope, I urged them on from the back of the line. Ever since then the girls have been looking for tunnels to crawl through. Some parents may frown upon this but being a risk taker myself this seemed like a good idea. We made plans to seek out ex-large tunnels. It seems they enjoy an adventure! This series is from a weekend walk near the house.

MN Land of Awesome

Park Point Park is a local favorite of many Duluthians. On such an isolated piece of land it's hard to believe the variety of wildlife. Expect to see white pines, jack pines, sand dunes, lichen covered rocks, beach grass, birds of many species and so much more. It is truly one of Minnesota's most precious landscapes. With being such a delicate landscape the DNR is doing its best to protect it. Beware the point has its own defense. Poison Ivy. Everywhere! Don't stray too far off the beaten path.
These are a few snap shots from yesterday's walk. enjoy!

summer cicada

With the lack of snow this winter I am longing warm summer days. This little bugger reminds me that a summer breeze is just around the corner. Stay warm!
