Spring in Wisconsin

I write so many posts about winter…or maybe I have more time to write in winter since we’re holed up inside.

At any rate, it IS spring and almost summer-like in Wisconsin.  Here are some of my recent pictures that show the changing seasons.

WANTED: Spring in Wisconsin

This morning I woke up to this:

April in Wisconsin

Gotta love an April snowstorm

And earlier this month, we were enjoying 90’s in Phoenix.

I think we should have extended our trip. Yikes!

I hope your spring is nicer than ours here in Wisconsin.  Please come back soon Spring!

Wonder of the World, Indeed

How do you react to one of the natural wonders of the world?

This is what my mom and I looked like:

Amazement mixed with fear, excitement and joy: Mama O. and her own Mom

Upon first glance of the Grand Canyon, my heart leaped right up in my throat.

The canyon is so immense.

We were up so high.

We were glad there were railings!  Look how far away from the railings we first stood.

Even my first pictures were taken farther away from the edge, or I can’t remember if my kids took these pictures.

Grand Canyon – view from the South Rim. 

Can you see the river at the bottom of the canyon?  This is the oldest part of the canyon.

No railings at this part of the South Rim! 

My eight year old daughter took this picture below.  I love the view of the tree’s shadow. It’s incredible seeing the Grand Canyon through another photographer’s points of view.

It’s impossible to take a bad picture there!

Seeing the Grand Canyon is a powerful, moving, and spiritual experience. How blessed are we to have such wonders in our world!

More pictures and stories from our adventures to come.
