Birthday Party for Jeremiah and Kalliope!!!

Our daughter, Eliza, had a birthday party at a local park for our two oldest grand kids. They were born a year and two days apart.  The party was held at Island Park near downtown Fargo.  Such a beautiful setting and the day was warm and sunny with a very calm breeze.  From the pictures here, you'd think there were very few adults present, but the kids have so much fun at an event like this that it's just a joy to watch them and a chore to select which wonderful expressions to include and how to leave some of them out.

Life in Petersburg, ND

The sights out here always amaze me.  The skies at sunset are always beautiful.  I spent so much of my life in cities, just the quiet progress of life in the country.

Blue Moon Rising

Blue Moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon
You know just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

A blue moon was originally when there were four full moons in a season.  At one time, a writer mistakenly said it was four full moons in any three month period.  His error seemed to stick and became the modern definition of a blue moon.

I had to drive from Fargo to Grand Forks to pick up Laurie, So, as the moon was coming up big and bright, I stopped and took a few pictures on the way.
