BWCA

We had it all on our overnight BWCA trip ~ Sun, rain, snow, and wind. Despite the unpredictable weather, we also had a bit of fun.

gymnast

My gymnast, and the hardest working 11 yo. I know.

bel the builder

Spotted in the recycling bin at school, Isabel asked if she could have a particularly interesting piece of cardboard. Brought it home and turned it into this…

welcome home

Don’t think anyone looks forward to the end of the school day like Clarke ~ Welcome home Isabel!

boo hoo back to school

First day of middle school and 4th grade… went well from what I hear :-)

rocky mountain high… Wyoming

Couldn’t resist on the soundtrack… it’s copyrighted so you’ll need the password.  Hint, what’s a pack animal that beings with “L”?

a day in the life

Like the famous Beatles song, Isabel and her piano camp friends let the final chord of their silent film music score ring.

lifegaurd

Not allowed in the pool, Clarke was strangely content playing lifeguard.

cannon ball

Grace bombing mom’s iPhone in slow motion ~ still works.

under the sea

come on… sing it!

Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’
Full time to floatin’
Under the sea

Under the sea is where Grace and Isabel will be spending this week; surfacing only occasionally in Grandma’s pool for food and air.

fashion faux pas?

not for the mix master Miss Isabel.

spackling

This was my answer to “what can I do?”. When I start sanding I’ll probably reconsider the wisdom of having Isabel help with drywall prep.

music in the park

Here’s another reason why Duluth was voted Outside magazine’s best outdoors town.  Chester Park’s weekly, and free summer concert series.  With sun and 70 degrees we took in local legend Charlie Parr playing at the base of Chester ski hill and it’s towering old school ski jump.

Isabel brought a friend, they listened briefly, but spent most of their time scaling the ski slope.

wind chill

The second of Duluth’s two seasons is upon us… Mosquito season. Hoping that a bit of wind would help keep the pests at bay, I installed a ceiling fan on the deck. While it does work, you need a lot of fleece to deal with the wind chill.

finals week

Isabel passed out cramming for finals week… that is if you call a field trip to the YMCA and Fort Folle Avoine Historical Park a final.

burnt

Isabel prefers a slow cooked, gently browned marshmallow that someone else has tended to perfection… Unlike her marshmallows however, the weekend sun left Isabel’s shoulders anything but nicely brown. Ouch!

crispy

Grace likes ‘em crispy.

yellowstone & teddy roosevelt NP

Spent last week in Yellowstone NP with my photo buddy Sparky. We left last Sunday late afternoon, driving through the night arriving in Yellowstone early Monday morning.  We chased bears, birds and bison until Thursday afternoon when we headed for Teddy Roosevelt NP.  After a night in Teddy we drove the wildlife loop

gloomy

Despite the sunny weather a sore throat had Isabel feeling gloomy today.

happy mothers day

With lotsa frosting and even more Love.
