All of these pictures were taken on Saturday, the 20th of Dec, a day that will go down in the Hanks' history as the coldest, craziest, most random and coolest Saturday I've EVER spent in Minneapolis.In the morning, Becca, Taber and I went on a nice easy jog around a lake close to their house. It was 20 degrees outside. As Becca put it, we had to get outside and enjoy the warm weather while we had it! I saw this dried-out blowfish just hanging in a tree. You're guess as to an explanation to where it came from is as good as mine!
This is a female Flamingo at a petting zoo we visited with the kidlets in the morning. My only thought was if I had to live in a barn open to the freezing Minneapolis winters, I'd spend a lot of my time with my head in a heat lamp too.
This was during our evening activity at the Mall of America. Does this need an explanation?! I think not.
