One heck of a spring snow storm is moving through Minnesota and the snow cut-off line is just crazy. When I left work I had to clean the snow off my car, the roads weren’t great, and the visibility was low. By the time I got home there was no snow. Just five miles to […]
As technology advanced it’s easier and easier to do things on your own. Like becoming your own graphic designer and creating advertisements for your company. Take this postcard I got in the mail last week. How great is this? If you know anything about graphic design, this will undoubtedly drive you nuts. Comic Sans! Black […]

Spent the day at the Minnesota Zoo today. We met all the animals and played in the splash park. We even saw the farm animals but it still seems weird to go to the zoo to see cows. They also have a nice new outdoor themed play area for all ages.
Lily found a dragonfly on her play house today. He stayed there nearly all day too and allowed us to get an up close and personal look at the amazing insect. You can see an even bigger version on Flickr.
We live outside the city because of views like this from our backyard. We see trees, not houses, we have a large yard for our daughter to run around in, and we have the ability to look up at night and see stars. It is quiet, it is spacious, and it is beautiful.
