Deja vu all over again

Last weekend we took a trip up to Bayfield to visit my brother and his family. We went mainly because they are moving at the end of this month. Out to Wyoming to work at Teton National Park, which is very close to Yellowstone. So now instead of going up to the Apostle Islands, we will be heading west to the mountains, something I'm very excited for. I've never been to Wyoming, except for on the way to Colorado and I've heard it is amazingly beautiful.

I was a little worried taking the 4 hour drive from Minneapolis to Bayfield, but Sena LOVES to sleep in the car. She loved it so much that she slept the entire way. It was awesome.

But then she woke up at 12, 2, and 4 am screaming her bloody head off. Which woke up her cousin Gerard, who then chimed in with his own banshee interpretations. Lovely night music. So I told Sena she needed to be quiet or she would never be invited back to visit. She didn't care.

So last year when I was up at Bayfield I took pictures like this.

And this.

And this. So artistic...

Which now have been replaced with this.


And this...

This picture is more than a little bit weird. It is kind of freaky how much Gerard and Sena look like me and my brother at that age. Jimmy and Mindy, the next generation. God help us....

Great photos! Dad says you should send the last one to Toyota for an ad in a magazine. Gerard and Sena do look like you and Jimmy when you guys were little....kind of weird.

I just saw a great line for Toyota:
