Minnesota

Here's some highlights of our first few days in Minnesota.


This is the newest member of the family, Elanor. I'm a Great Uncle!



Here is a feisty Badger we saw at Oxbow Park, outside of Rochester.

We went fishing on a float below lock and dam number five, near Wabasha where they filmed the Grumpy Old Men movies. Younger son caught his first fish ever, a sheephead.


We saw a lot of animals during this trip: wild turkeys, deer, bald eagles, soft shelled turtles, racoons.

He is learning to play with cats, here at my brother's house.


My sister's husband got a buffalo statue from his job at the Salvation Army, took it home, put it in the backyard and painted it. Here's our younger checking out the buffalo, backed by his cousins.


Here on the monkey bars at Lincoln Elementary.

Cool badger. I'll have to check out Oxbow park next time I'm in Rochester.
