Pedal Boats!

Thought my shoes pedaling would work for the theme! Here we are on Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles in MN, pedaling away! Phew, that's hard work, especially with three kids (2 were helping, a little....)! It was overcast and beautiful, it rained right after we docked! Miss B, missed the dock however, and had a slight dunk in the lake! Nice...she scored herself some sweet new shorts from Children's Place at the Mall of America...I wonder if she planned that! (BTW, someone asked where my son's PJ's were from...yep, you guessed it, Children's Place, same place and time!)We had so much fun, the Midwest is full of fun things to do! We don't feel we have the same sort of stuff here in the desert! Oh well! I guess it's nice here come Winter!! We loved all the sailboats and the meandering path to get there...great memories!


  1. Tee Hee! Love the shoes! :) Glad you thought the Midwest was fun. . . I've lived here my whole life and -- though I wouldn't move anywhere else -- I have yet to believe that it's really "fun" lol Especially in the winter time! Your pics look great -- I always love the intense colors you get. TFS

  2. Great colours!
    I love paddle boats. I want one so bad for our cottage! One of these days....
    Great crocs - love 'em!

  3. I haven't done paddle boats in sooo long. I love the bridge picture ~ great colors on all of these. I love the crocs too, wanted a pair, but waited too long and now I can't find those Mary Jane ones in my size.

  4. these are great! love your angle on things and you have a real eye for color! great job.

  5. OMG!
    Lake Calhoun?
    Lake of the Isles?
    You are in Minnesota. Are you visiting? The Mpls. lakes are wonderful and you got awesome shots. Love the bridge, the paddles boats, the sailboats and more...all beautifully shot.
    I used to live mere blocks from there but now am way north of Mpls.
