Riley & Gracie (sneak peak)

I took some shots of the Donovan's last weekend. They were great sports in the sweltering heat. Here are a few sneak peaks.

Gracie just finished kissing Riley on the cheek. She was fine with it. He was horrified.

And the whole family.

Max & Cole

Meet Max and Cole (again). I also met them last fall. See photos here. I got to hang out with them down by the river for awhile on a Saturday morning. They were quite smiley, and VERY interested in finding the dam. But I was able to sneak a few shots in between running around and curiously staring at the water.

The MIDDLE of Nowhere.

Great news. I finally made it to the center of the universe. Well, close, anyway. My friends and I drove out (literally to the middle of a cornfield) to find the center of the Northwest Hemisphere. Of the four "centers" two are under water. Clearly, this is a tourist destination drawing throngs of people to central Wisconsin.

Anyway, I was very excited, as you can see...

My friends were also excited...

And later, once we told people about what we had seen, they made more friends. I'm very proud.

Midnight Sky

I'm a stars girl mostly, but sometimes the city skyline can be oh-so-pretty...

They Were Running....

Jake and Jana decided to rock a 5k this spring. It was Jana's birthday wish. Now, my birthday wishes typically involve chocolate, travel or cute shoes...but Jana simply wanted her brother to run a 5K with her. We are very different souls...

Anyway, this was Jake before the race, looking very confident. It was his first 5k, and I'm uber-proud of his motivation and effort.

They (Jana, Jake, and their friend Don) then took off, giving me just enough time to walk around the park, step in dog doo, spend way too long being grossed out and trying to wipe it off my shoes, and then prepare myself to catch photos of these speed demons as they whizzed by the throngs of fan(s).


Wait, it gets worse...

I've decided nobody really looks good while running.

They look great after, however.

Happy Birthday (a long time ago) Jana! Nice work out there.

Twins Kinda Summer

I think it's going to be a Twins kinda summer. My obsession with patio-season elevates to an entirely new level now that an outdoor stadium has been thrown into the mix. We previewed the new stadium before opening day (again, I'm so late on this it's not funny). Still, there are some interesting shots coming out of the whole thing...

That last one is from our shared-part-of-a-season-seats. Loving the skyline view. I can't wait for a night game with that...
