Spring is springing?

The weather was fantastic here in Duluth today. We opened windows and frolicked outside, enjoying the fresh breeze and warm sun.

Here are the boys down in Canal Park, playing on the snow banks by the lake.







Also this weekend was our friends Ryan & Sarah's annual curling tournament, which many of our college friends came up to compete in. We only got one good photo during their visit, though, and here it is. Finn thought it was the height of comedy to lay on Kyle's chest:

Pearsons in the News

Last Saturday, we went to Hartley Nature Center for the annual ski & snowshoe event, which was a lot of fun. While there, we were interviewed by the local news and ended up making it on a "Nature Matters" segment. Enjoy!

A big ol' Saturday

Taking full advantage of the sunny day and somewhat mild temperatures, Team Pearson had a big day today. First up was a trip to the Lake Superior Zoo, which is always a fun time for everyone. Finn was a little disappointed there were no elephants or rhinos, but all in all, it was a lot of fun.

Leif plays at the zoo playground:


In a post-walk playtime, the boys do some auto-maintenance.


This evening we went to Hartley Nature Center for their annual candlelight ski & snowshoe night, which is sort of a member appreciation party. We hiked out to the pond, where a winter camper was baking brownies in his tent, and then back to the center for dinner and s'mores.

Finn's first s'more!

Fun at Bagley

Grandpa Sam delivered some firewood today, and we took the opportunity to go sledding at Bagley with him.





Though really in mid-fall, it sure looks like Leif is balancing on one foot here.
