Happy birthday, Josie! Josie is 6 today, and it was quite a day.
Every child in Josie's class gets to be VIP for a week. It's usually around birthday time. So this week is Josie's week. Here she is with Mrs. Bromwich, her teacher putting on her crown.

I think it was my son-in-law who always said "another nice day in Cuchamonga" when he woke up and saw it was nice here!
Just a few weeks ago, I used a picture of ice fishermen on Lake Minnetonka. They had their trucks on the lake, as well as their ice houses.
Then up went this sign: "Thin Ice". But if you look, you will see the thin ice has given way to water. I am sure there are already bets for the date of "ice out", which is the date the ice is completely gone on the lake.
This lake is just a few minutes from my house. I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, about 15 minutes from town. Minnesota is the "Land of 10,000 Lakes", and though is not the largest lake by far, it is a huge lake close to town. It used to be filled with cabins and lake homes. It was the summer spot for city "folks". Now it is ringed with mansions for the wealthy well-known business owners here.
In the summer it is filled with boats- small and large. In the winter, ice houses, and polar-dipping (those crazies who jump into the lake on January 1st in freezing weather).
Some of the towns around the lake, like Wayzata and Excelsior, are really cute towns with great shops and restaurants.
This is my town. I think I will intersperse pictures of "my town" among my pictures this year. I love to watch how things change over the years, and this will be one more thing to journal in this year. I already have the library and the fire station.....I'm off to a great start!
Did I say, I love this Challenge!

Then my daughter emailed me this picture she took outside of the Baskin Robbins in Miami. (If tear drops could stick to my blog, there would be tears from her having another night of Jamoca Almond Fudge ice cream!)
I took the picture, and fixed it up in Photoshop (does that count as mine?). I really want this in my 365 Days album, so from Miami, Florida......
This is a picture of the Space Shuttle Launch!
