Yesterday, one of my all time fav bands released their third CD (fourth if you count their self-released – I know what you are thinking – *dork*).  I’ve been super pumped for their self-titled disc Augustana to come out for quite some time.  I’ve been a fan for years and have seen them live 3 times.  Each time I was blown away by the talent that was on stage.

I love Augustana because they always seem to reinvent themselves everytime I hear a new CD.  Their earlier music, All the Stars and Boulevards was more alt-rock, followed by a more indie sound for their next effort,  Can’t Love, Can’t Hurt.  I’ve barely had time to listen to this new disc but I’m loving it already!  Here’s thier newest video to the current single, “Steal Your Heart”.

For the fellow photos our there – sweet example of creating shapes in the bokah!!   Enjoy!

Buy it on Amazon MP3!

These cuties are Eric & Maya.  Eric is 100% little boy.  He doesn’t. ever. stop.  I sure got a workout following him around last week at Edenborough Park in Edina.  Maya is the sweetest little gal you’ve ever seen.  She is always happy and content.  Plus, her mom dresses her in the most adorable clothes.

Check out some of the fun we had running around the park and through the huge jungle gym that stretched all the way to the very, very tall ceiling.  Even I went close to the top.  I won’t say it wasn’t a struggle, but boy was it fun!

I LOVE all her cute little expressions!

Thanks Flaskerud family!!


This April has led to more Minnesotans groaning about weather than I can remember in a long time.  I have to admit I’m right there with everyone when we ask, “Hello?  Spring?  Where are you?!?”

However, as I woke up this past Wednesday morning, I had to crack a little smile.  It had snowed again.  In April.  But this time. . .shhhh. . . don’t tell, but I thought it was beautiful.  The temperature was pretty warm, so it wasn’t going to stick and the wind was almost non-existent.  Just a gorgeous snowfall of the wet, heavy, large flakes right out of a Hollywood movie.

I was at school extra early that morning, borrowed a fellow teachers daughter, and went out to take some shots.  We had a great time running twirling and laughing through the trees.  See for yourself.


. . .and the snow stopped 10 minutes later. . .
