    Well tomorrow ends a glorious week of vacation and it has been a good one.
    During this week in July every year my brothers and I make the trip down to my folks house in Wabasha for what we call "Birthday week."
    My mom and I have the same birthday along with my step daughter and since it falls in the middle of July it's a good excuse to get the whole family together for a week of R & R.
    At any rate this week was one of those weeks that earns Minnesota / Wisconsin the nickname of "God's Country."
    Temps in the 80's (f), low humidity, and azure blue skies that seemed to go on forever.

    Here is a Monarch butterfly to start this off.

    Here is a shot of a small song bird.
    The light wasn't quite right and only a small portion of the bird was lit properly but I still think it works with the black wrought iron heart and the black border.

    These shots are of the new National Eagle Center building which is open to the public but hasn't had it's grand opening yet. They are still working on the exhibits so these shots are from the exterior. I'm rather proud of this building since my dad and my uncle were both involved in the development of the new center.

    Brickwork on the front of the building.

    These next shots are taken from Stockholm Wisconsin at the Stockholm Art Fair which is another annual pilgrimage for my family. This is located on the shores of beautiful lake Pepin.

    I thought this one of the lake turned out pretty good.
    It's hard to believe sometimes on days like today, that 6 short months from now all of this will be frozen under a layer of snow and ice.
