Come and gone

Since my last post...
Christmas has come and gone.
New Year has come and gone.
Valentine's Day has come and gone.
February has just about come and gone.
And what do I have to show for all this time that has passed? I'm ashamed to admit it, but not a whole lot.

However, I do have some cool photos taken of ice formations along the south shore of Lake Superior. We visited my sister and her family in Marquette, Michigan over the holidays. The only reason I can think of why people would live so far north is simply poor life choices. The snow and ice was pretty...for a week.

Presque Isle Park, Upper Harbor

It was a fun visit full of eating, playing cards, taking silly photos, snowshoeing, sledding, drilling random holes in the ice on the lake, playing with the dogs, snowball fights, shoveling snow. Yes, shoveling. I add that only because Zack had never really shoveled snow before. He was pretty jazzed about being able to shovel 6 inches of fresh snow off the deck in totally random patterns that would make a seasoned northerner cringe. (Only those who shovel/have shoveled on a daily basis will understand.)
