Yesterday was such a beautiful day! I’ve been carrying around a nasty sinus infection for a few weeks now and it felt sooooooooo great to be outside feeling slight kisses from the sun on my face. Of course it is raining and “cold” again now…and…hold on to your underwear…snow is expected this weekend! YIKES! Oh well, I suppose we go through this every spring. Still…there is just something magical about all the wonderful transformations taking place in nature.

Jakob had invited the neighbor kids over to check out what they could find in the pond just below our house. Of course he could not go “unparented”, so I grabbed my camera and tagged along. It was so sweet to see how they cleaned out every inch along the edge of the water looking for anything that moved. Every now and then I would hear shrieks of joy…and “come and look what we caught”! So sweet!

Check out the itty-bitty frog I captured. I was taking photos of the kids and suddenly heard this loud frog sound. We can hear them from our house and I always imagined that they were quite large. No bigger than my thumb!!! When they make their croaking sound they blow up their chest like a balloon. It was really crazy to get so close to the “action”.

Here are some of the images I enjoyed “catching”!

Yes! Spring is here!

My Dad lives on a small island south of Bergen, Norway. I always refer to it as “my Dad’s island”. It is small and he lives at the very end of the road. 

The day of the wedding I stayed up all night before tucking in at 6:30am!! An hour or two before that I watched the sun rising and shining on the mountains, giving off a very special glow. There were a few others with me that watched the same amazing view. I think we were all breathless. That image is photographed in my mind – forever! I will add some of my nature images later. 

Here are some shots of my nephew and my kids playing. They played non-stop all day, every day we were there. I wish I had some of that energy.  : )

I swear! These kids can out-jump any adult! They never tire of doing flips and games.

Stine wanted to join in on the fun.

Quick! It’s gonna rain. Let’s go home!

These boys ate like there was no tomorrow. Finally!  : )
