For my birthday and Mother's day, I received a new manual camera that I love. I love playing with it, but don't know how to use all the bells and whistles. My sister, a professional photographer, Gretchen Alms was generous enough to take me on a photography lesson. She brought a dog, I brought a kid, and we walked around downtown Mankato. Here are some shots.
|I love this stance: Ah hoy, Mate! He also just conquered the steps!|
|He's going to march right up those steps!|
|It was hot out! Hydrate!|

End of July, Lauren came home! Lauren lives in Seoul, Korea most of the year teaching English to elementary students. Lauren hasn't seen Caleb for one year. Here are their first moments together:
Families are all fun and special...and wonderful when we're together!
|Caleb walked around the corner and saw Lauren|
|There he is...seeing his Auntie.|
|Smiling at Lauren from a safe distance with Oma:)|
|Look at that handsome man.|
|Playing with Uncle Garrett|
|Uncle Garrett's biceps are burning.|
|Snuggles with Oma!|
Caleb got to play on the farm this July. Great-Great Uncle Roger and Aunt Holly live on a beef farm with lots of fun calves, cows, machinery, and landscape. Here are some of the highlights from the day on the farm:
|Watching the calves|
|Hanging out at the pond/summer kitchen|

What a great day! Caleb slept the whole way home. Being a farmer is exhausting! :)
