"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Just pictures

Spring has finally sprung and the kids are enjoying their time outdoors getting as dirty as possible. Only in Minnesota can you play outside in a t-shirt next to a snowbank in April. :) But around here, 55 is practically shorts weather. The sun feels so warm after a cold Winter!

Below are some pictures for faraway friends. :)

Pink toes in the sand for the first time ever!


Missing teeth, so cute!


Its hard work getting dirty!


Big Al!






She's fascinated by the rocks








If only this tractor did some real work!


Boy and his dog <3

I just painted Oksana's nails for the first time. She sat for 10 minutes laughing and staring at them!

LOVE the pictures! Our yard is nothing but MUD right now. We're way up on a hill in the woods, and ours is the last yard in the neighborhood to melt. LOL And the backyard? Yeah, 4 dogs for the winter and you get the idea! But Dean is out there working now. Axel and I are headed on a nature walk!
