Easter and…

How on earth did these kids get so big?











This photo says it all to me.

CT in control.

PJ with the side-ways smirk.

KP…doing what he does.

It’s taken me awhile

Today I pulled my Dad’s Caring Bridge site down from my links.  I have thought about it often but haven’t been able to do it.

It’s like throwing away the left over cards from his funeral.

These are little bits and pieces that are left of him, so getting rid of them are difficult if not agonizingly painful.

To the living this is all we have left, the papers, the books, the sweaters, the tangible things we can still hold, touch and smell.  Why on earth would you want to get rid of that?  If that is gone you have nothing to hug and hold, feel or touch.  But I can’t keep these things forever.

So we plant trees to visit, to sit next to and to summon the memories.  Every time we drive around Lake Calhoun the kids want to stop and visit grandpa’s tree.

I took this photo a month or so ago.  It says so much to me.  The kids just hang’n out, playing and watching the sun set in one of the most beautiful parts of the city that my dad loved.

I find him here most.  The memories come flooding back for me in this place.  As the kids play, I know he is there taking part in it all.

Summer 2011 Photo Journal

June 6th, 2011

I decided this morning, as the sun was rising over lake Minnetonka and I was 15 miles into a 35 mile bike ride with a run to shortly follow, that I should change things up on Circuslunch for the summer.

Seeing I have had a hard time finding the time to post much of anything, I decided that I will simply do a photo journal of sorts. Posting a photo a day.  There may be words, there may not.  It won’t be limited to “the best” or “the worst” moments of the day, just simply moments.

And today we begin.

Summer 2011: Day 1

Sun rise ride around Lake Minnetonka.

Boys of summer

I couldn’t resist this shot…it’s really less about the boys and more about the wicked cool clouds overhead.

I’m stills stuck in Hipstamatic heaven, bear with me.

Hidden Under the Azalea

This is for Erik, who keeps badgering me about putting something else up so he doesn’t have to look at my dog anymore.

Waaaay to much fun

Thanks to Dooce, I spent the weekend taking photos with my iphone and the Hipstamatic App.

Foxi Roxi and her 41st birthday cake.

St. Joan’s Palm Sunday’s Service.  This is darkness coming over the land!

KP pondering life.

Lucy pondering a duck.

PJ pondering her ever changing creative abilities.

Me, moments off my bike, pondering how I will survive the next 6 months of training.

What are you going to shoot today?

I used to think Adam was so HOT in High School.

And after 23 years, not much has changed in that regard.

I love you.

Happy Anniversary, again.

Shhhhh, it’s coming

Are you ready?

The camera of my dreams

November 10th, 2009

So I’ve done it.

I finally, after years of pining, purchased an exquisite camera FOR MYSELF.

What can I say but…I’m giddy!
