March 2013 Photos – March Snow, Children’s Museum, Spring Break, Easter

March brought along more snow, a mountain of it.  Michael’s first grade class was featured in the local Rochester Magazine.  He was quite proud of his cool artwork that he designed and colored.  Dan was adventurous and tried to replicate fried tofu balls with mixed success.  We entertained the family at the Rochester Children’s Museum which is a nice little off shoot of the Minneapolis Children’s Museum with basically room for a single rotating exhibit.   Spring Break we skipped town to Minneapolis and had some good food and swam in a hotel pool and hit up Mall of America for Nickelodeon Universe.

February 2013 Photos – Snow, Sledding, Ice Skaing, Valentine’s

The boys went ice-skating for the first time this February.   This is a must for any Minnesotan, although I must say, a worrisome sport for a parent who is concerned of the preservation of their children’s teeth.  Luckily the Rec Center had PVC walkers for newbie skaters.  I think the kids sort of got the hang of it.  The snow finally started falling and the kids enjoyed building snow forts and snow men.  Valentine’s day had a sushi surprise for daddy, as well as flowers for mommy and cards for all.  As always there was a visit to Chuck E Cheese to pass some of the winter days by.

Michael lost his first tooth.  Bowling is a nice winter escape.  We got a rock tumbler for Christmas and have been working on our amethyst from Ontario.  Negative six degree weather but not much snow.

Split Rock Lighthouse, Minneosta Winter Panorama

With winter upon us proper for the first time in two years, a frigid -22° F is what we awake to to start the new year.  Appropriately I needed a winter panorama to round out the fall colors and tropical vistas lately.  This one’s actually from four years back on a trip up to the Lake Superior North Shore in winter to Split Rock Lighthouse State Park.  You can see the lighthouse towards the far left watching over the menacing Lake Superior in winter.  Click here for a larger version of the panorama.

On the first day of arrival to Grand Palladium Resort we awoke early to catch the sunrise from the southern end of the resort’s beach.  Our lodgings were right around the corner.  For October hurricane season, the weather was  absolutely gorgeous.  Click here for a larger version of the panorama.
