My Beautiful Girls, My Sweet Boys

When you live in a state where the ground stays frozen for nearly four months out of every year, and the air remains uncomfortably cold for even longer than that - a beautiful summer day requires a trip to the park.

So, the children and I headed out to a favorite park, hiked a few trails, dipped our feet into the lake and finished off the field trip with some time spent on the playground.

And of course, the camera came along too :)
