60 Seconds of Serenity – Lake Life

From a morning canoe ride with my wife the other day. There’s just something about being on the water – the sights, the sounds, the calm – at the beginning of the day.

Enjoy!

Bald Eagles

My wife and I saw a whole bunch of them the other day. Such beautiful creatures!

In one case, 10 of them were all in one area. Can’t say I’ve seen 10 bald eagles together, before. Have you?

It was cool getting to see them and watching them do their thing. Plus, this time of year around here we are desperate to get outside, so it was nice to do that as well.

Enjoy the photos and have a great day!

60 Seconds of Serenity – Winter Waterfall

I’m not a big fan of winter, but it has its moments. 🙂

Starved Rock is a beautiful place…no matter what season it is.

Enjoy!

Here are a few photos from the recent camping/canoeing/fishing trip I took with my sons.

It was a great time. Had fun talking with them and hanging out, plus enjoying the beautiful scenery.

It’s become an annual event, a tradition of sorts – we go to the same place, get the same campsite. It’s a lot of fun.

What are some of your traditions with your kids? Or, ones you shared as a kid with your family? I’d love to hear from you. Please share in the comments section, below.

Have a great day!

Fall Flowers

Alright, it’s not technically fall yet, but I needed some alliteration for the title of this post. 🙂

Took this pic during a lunchtime walk the other day. So much to explore and enjoy out there!

Have a great day.
