The reunion. (and a nice sunset.)

At the Ellis reunion, Sam, being reclusive at dinnertime. ^^
The lovely ladies, Jenna and Dinah. I like how their eyes pop with the green background.
Some neat eyecandies laid out in inspired fashion.
Steve's British car and the shed. Quite a lovely shed at that.
The outhouse (where I saw said eyecandies, and left flycandies)
This was the general assembly area. Mind the hostas.
Uncle John sporting his bird-watching binoculars, His mother, bored.
Nation, bored sitting on the bricks.
they asked me if I wanted to play badminton.. While they were waiting for an answer I took a picture and said "no, not really" and they walked off. John laughed at the situation.
Here we are on the eve of the second day enjoying our last supper with the Ellises.
on the way home, we stopped to look out at the sunset on the Mississippi. Very grand stuff, its a really nice drive down and back on 35. We stopped in at an ice-cream store in Bay City which I would suggest to anyone heading out that way. Also, The art gallery in Stockholm was really nice.
Jenna took a picture of the last rays of light climbing over the silhouetted trees... Very pretty columns of light and she managed to get a crucifix in there :p

Mother's Day

My brother Philip and sister Dinah kidnapped me from my room around 10 -11 am to include me on a special "surpise" edition of mother's day. Phil and Dinah live out of town and didn't tell anyone they were coming in.. Even I, their favorite brother, was left in the dark until the mission was go. Well fortunately I had already finished my mom's gift, a collaged card the day previous with Jenna at her parents' house.

as you can see, she loved her gift :) (she did.. she's faking her disappointment here)

And later that day Phil suggested that I move up to live with him in St Cloud which I've seriously considered and have agreed to do. I will be leaving within the month I believe.. SO. Big news, there you have it.

I'll leave you with a link (flash required) good ol' Dan'o sent me from up thar in Canada country:

Have a wonderful day ;)
