Day Twenty-Three: Welcome to Iowa

I have been looking forward to this weekend for almost a month. My daughter with my granddaughter and grandson were coming to Minneapolis for 3 days.

Then this morning my daughter called. I assumed she was on her way. Instead she told me my grandson Max, 4 years old, was running a high fever and probably had the flu.

So instead, I got in my car and drove to them. It is a 3 1/2 hour ride, but today was treacherous. It was windy, and blowing the snow across the highway making for "white out" conditions.....horrible.

But here I am. I shot this while driving, grabbing my little point and shoot from my purse, and between white-outs took this!

My second picture is my little Max who I found in his mother's bed. I couldn't resist doing 2 pictures today as it tells my story!


  1. Glad to hear you arrived safely! That looks like quite a storm. I love the b/w photo treatment really adds to the ambiance of the shot! The second shot is beautiful too! The colors are gorgeous and your grandson is adorable! Hope he feels better soon.

  2. Bless his heart...I hope he feels better soon!

  3. wow...I would not want to drive in that. but what a wonderful mommy you are. hope the little monkey feels better soon!
