A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Moments of Spring in the midst of winter...

Saturday, in Rochester Mn was a warm sunny day! 
The end of February brought us temps in the mid 50's
Which called for a day at our local zoo, Oxbow Park
This lovely family spontaneously asked this grandma to come along with them
of course I said, Yes!  (grandpa was with my dad watching HS basketball)

My beautiful daughter and her equally beautiful family!

The visit wouldn't be complete without feeding the goats

She's growing up too fast... my sweet Audrey

The cougar basking in the sun

Feeding the donkey
Well hi there Mr. goat.
 Mother and daughter

 They were so sweet to pose with Grandma.

Just playing, 
You know you're a true Minnesotan... 
when you decide to flip off your coat on a 57 degree February afternoon! 

Loved spending time with this family, thanks for letting me be a part of your day.


  1. What a splendid day you had at Oxbow Park. Is this right in Rochester?

    You're right about Audrey growing up. Look at that girl stretching. There's such a strong resemblance between you, Brianna and Audrey. You're all beautiful.

    Of course, so is that sweet Carson. He's growing up too quickly also.

    1. You're too sweet Audrey.... Audrey is getting to look more and more like her mamma. Oxbow is just east of Byron, MN. We live on the NW side of Rochester, so it's really close to us, only about 8 miles from our house. It' s in the country on an acreage with lots of tails and a small zoo. Perfect for little ones!
