Focus on Art

Harry and I took some very silly pictures around the fun sculptures at the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens.

Split Rock Lighthouse on Lake Superior

Isn't this a unique representation of Split Rock Lighthouse? The main triangular photo is the lighthouse as seen from the top of the cliff. The second triangular photo was shot from the peninsula to the south of the lighthouse. The background photo shows the lighthouse stairs viewed from above. I used a template created by Brandy Murry based on one of her layouts, and I think it turned out pretty cool.

Family 2014

This was one of the few times we three girls and our parents were all together, so I'm glad we got a family photo.

I created this page for the Monday Random Challenge to scrap a general photo using a holiday-themed kit. I used two different Christmas kits on this layout.


Weekend and Kayak Getaways

We were delighted when the kids were able to come up to the cabin for a relaxing weekend getaway. On the first day there, Steven was about to hop into the kayak when the kayak made its own getaway. Fortunately, the canoe was still on shore, so the boys paddled over and captured the kayak before it drifted off too far.

Wild Beauty

We spotted this dew-laden bit of wild beauty as we hiked along the Split Rock River on a misty day in August.

Quiet Moment on the North Shore

During our time on the north shore of Lake Superior this past summer, we enjoyed many quiet moments like this.  We were continually amazed at the beauty of God's creation, so we would stop to soak it all in.
