Why do we live in Minnesota? I don't know. (That's not true - of course I know. Our families and our histories are here.) On Saturday it was flat out cold, for the eight billionth day in a row, so I took Rose #3 and her cousin to the Como Conservatory. They have a koi pond amongst the flowers. The pond is so dark, you can't see the bottom. Every single time we go near it, I picture my child tumbling over into the pond and me having to jump in. Crunching a few koi bones under my feet, of course.
Luckily nothing like that happened. We just enjoyed the beautiful lily show. Here's Rose #3 posing by the water:
And her cute sweet cousin Kate (NOT KATY) (the crumbs around her mouth may or MAY NOT be donut crumbs. Oh. Yeah, they're donut crumbs):
It is so blissfully warm and humid in the Conservatory that my camera fogged up. I didn't care. I'm posting this picture anyway.
