At the lake in northern MN



in April. I was hoping we'd have more thawing when these guys got here. But not this year. The reason I was hoping for more thawing was that to be down by the lake when the ice is cracking is amazing. You hear these huge cracking sounds... HUGE, scary sounds, it's so cool. Also really cool is that the ice pushes up to the shore, so there's these sheets of ice piling up next to each other, vertically; and the sheets can be bigger than you.

Tis OK though, they were in awe of the frozen lake. And it's fun to walk on ice any way it is, either solid or starting to thaw.

Gotta love rocks!





And guess what it's doing.... again?


I'll let you know what we get, I've heard that it could be 4 or 5 inches or 10... gotta love Spring.

I love that last picture of the girls in the snow. You captured their wonderful joy in *what is*, rather than what could have been. ;)

Oh my goodness, if I wasn't so SICK of cold weather, I would've loved those pictures. Actually, I do---love those pictures----just glad for once I can see the ground. Sending warm thoughts your way.
