Superior at Sunset

The last day that my mom was here, we took her to see the sunset over Lake Superior at McLain. We got there a little bit late for the full splendor, but it was still beautiful.

And I got some good pictures, which is generally all I care about in these situations.

Chloe preferred to stay on the swingset and off of the beach.

Sophia insisted on wearing her fancy princess dress down to the beach. The fact that I let her and didn't even bat an eye at it means that I am a very different mother than I was when Bria was Sophia's age. Poor Bria. Also, I really like the blue picture. I took it after the sun was totally down.

My favorite picture, though, just might be this one of Joel. He's showing off some of the big rocks he gathered to line our flower beds. Such a goof, but that's why I love him!

  1. Are you sure thats me? My hair is too short there. Beautiful shots. Gorgeous.

  2. happy sigh. I'm itching to come back

  3. Love these. They are so beautiful. I love the blue and the princess dress.

  4. Beautiful photos. I think I like the swing photo the best, but it is hard - they are all really nice.

  5. How lovely. I love how your family is in silhouette for these photos. So beautiful.

  6. I always wondered why you loved him....

  7. What great photos. I miss walking on the water so much. It is incredible.

    And I think all 4 of you girls should wear princess dresses next time.

  8. That is beautiful! And I have to be honest, I have always wanted to walk along a beach wearing a long flowy dress like that.
