When Spring Means Snow

I don’t think I know anyone who starts out spring thinking, “Let’s have a good blizzard!” But that’s what we did in Minnesota. And even though I don’t get along with the cold, I have to admit the results were beautiful. Especially since I didn’t have to go anywhere. My car was buried. The roads were buried. The trees were buried. The robins were still out and about, though.

Now this blizzard is nothing but a bad memory that I can laugh about. The snow is SO GONE and this corner of the world is warming up!

{Road Trip} Kandiyohi

This trip could also be titled Tour of Kandiyohi Parks…

It was early on that fateful Friday afternoon in July. April and I loaded up her car and set out on an adventure. Our only plan: to have fun. Our destination: Kandiyohi, MN, home of the Miron clan.selah_candace_rose_Kandiyohi_parks We arrived at Miron’s doorstep two hours later to spend July 4th weekend with Heather, Cole, and Ada. Mark was in the Cities working.

The trip was a success.
