As the sun set, the last rays lit the tops of the clouds while the rest were in the dark of dusk. It was the end of an unusually warm day for March in Minnesota. 80 degree temps inside and out. The kids ran around outside with their shorts on. A beautiful end to the day.

Snow on the ground, pond half melted with grass in the foreground reminding us what comes after the melt.
Brent in front of the filled pond
The rising pond - Brent stands at the shoreline. The day before the shoreline was 10 feet farther in.
Little creek running into the full pond - The snow melt and runoff has created a mini-creek flowing into the pond
After the pond drained -- sad Carl.
Bright Blue sky melting the snow.

I think with everyone looking as cold as they did, they were a bit impatient with me making them stop for a photo. I should have used more zoom I think and then stepped back to have the flash light up more below.
Natalie wonders if this will get mud all over her boots?
Walking in the creek over the rock bed. The kids feel like explorers!
Natalie tries to wrestle Angel down. The briars and sticks stick to Angel's bottom.
On the way back to the house after a long walk. Walking through the oak forest on the way home.
Mom and Dad pose for a pic.

Does the beak get cold or is it just comfortable to twist and nestle the beak under the feathers. This photo to me would have been a bit better had it not been for the poop he just squirted out as I was taking his photograph. With the kids at piano lessons, I spent some time laying down in my overalls, taking pictures at eye level with the birds.
