To this on Wednesday……..WTH, why? I know cuz I live in Minnesota and it even snows on July 4th. UGH…..will it ever end? I’m so tired of winter. I’m tired of being cold. I’m tired of wearing jeans, I want shorts. I’m tired of looking like a beached whale, it’s time for a tanned one.

On Monday Mike and I also went for a 10.56 mile bike ride on the

We had a great time though I am still not a happy camper riding a bike but we had a great time anyways. So you can enjoy some of our countryside I will share a few pictures with you. Even though winter refuses to let go I wouldn’t trade Minnesota for anywhere else in this great world of ours.

Our area is a mining area. We have quite a few open pit lakes that have left over reminders of the life that use to be part of the area. See the old railroad tracks?

Well it’s hump day and it was library day. Two weeks ago Justin and I brought in some duck eggs and he did a small presentation for the little ones. He was so proud. Here’s the library’s picture they took of him.

So there you have it, well mostly, I have two more photo’s to share with you. On our way home Monday evening we came in the back way and less then a mile from our home we saw this…..now you know why we fence everything. Why the apples trees never have apples and the plum trees don’t get past the budding stages.

Wonderful pics Julie! My husband would love to hunt the deer for you, lol. I prefer to see them running free. :-)

Have a wonderful day!

I can absolutely see why you'd never give it up. I love the midwest, and I can't wait to get back some day.

Josselyn is adorable, and so is Justin. How fun that you brought duck eggs in to show everyone!
