A Quick Visit to Beaver Lake

Growing up I’d often go to my grandparent’s lake house in Nebraska. But in my adult life, I have rarely had the opportunity to get out there. During our trip to Iowa to see family, we made a quick visit out to the lake. I snapped a few pictures of the evening.

Micah roams through the house. I never had envisioned seeing my own child walking around and playing in this house.

Lots of memories here.

Something was burning off in the distance. Also you can see the Beaver Lake dam.

We built a small fire to roast marshmallows on and stay warm.

A day of beauty

I’ve been trying to remember to bring my camera around with me more often. Good thing I did. Yesterday on my walk to class I spotted soem tulips. Also, I spotted a nice redbud tree. Later that day the sun began setting and the sky looked beautiful. Here is a sampling of yesterday’s beauty.
