4 on 4 | January Is Cold Edition

Every month myself and a very talented group of ladies from Clickin Moms get together to create the "4 on 4 Blog Circle" showcasing 4 of our favorite images from the month. Be sure to click the link at the bottom of this post to explore the circle! 

February already.  I can't believe it.

 Our first January in Minnesota was sort of underwhelming, I have to say!  Before we left Arizona we were told by anyone and everyone that we'd never survive the winter in Minneapolis.  The news this month has informed us that Northern Arizona has gotten about 20 more inches of snow than Minnesota.  Seriously.

That's not to say it hasn't been chilly.  Elena and I went to Minnehaha Falls to take photos of the frozen waterfall this month.  We got chased out by a park security guard before we could get too close but still...it was breathtaking!

It was, however, way too cold for my little desert kids so I took them instead to the Minnesota Zoo to explore the aquarium and tropics trails.  The addition to a 24mm lens to my arsenal made these day trips extra fun for me!

And finally Elena and I decided to explore the Basilica of St Mary in Minneapolis since neither of us had ever been.  The architecture is amazing and it's a LOT bigger than it appears to be but I think I prefer the Cathedral of St Paul.  Just because we weren't followed by a lot of people at that one.

February is going to be busy busy busy.  I have quite a few sessions scheduled plus a Clickin Moms meetup on the 11th.  Yay!
