The Copper Dome sells pancakes. Any kind you want. When we have time to spend (because the service is slow) we go there for breakfast. There are tons of old flour sacks framed and hung on the walls. They also have old cans of flour lined up on shelves. It's interesting to check out the old packaging in an area where so much flour used to be milled.

Forty degree weather + sunshine + convertable = One sweet ride in the car

Winter Carnival Parade! Here come the Vulcans! Hail the Vulc!

Heading for the Gopher Bar!

The Landmark Building reflected in another downtown St. Paul structure.

This is Como Park in St. Paul. The sun has been making a few appearences lately so I've been running outside to capture it.

As the sun was setting in the park, this woman was going for a stroll, the wind whipping her long coat and her hair.

The lake, usually frozen solid this time of year, has puddles on it's surface. You wouldn't catch me out on a lake when the weather is this warm, but the fellow in the photo here braved it.

Miraculously the sun came out today. As I was sucking vitamin D in through my eyeballs with greed, I took this photo of the St. Paul Cathedral.

St. Paul is home to the Minnesota State Capital building. Looks like The White House, don't you think? But I can't figure out why that statue guy in the foreground is up higher than most humans can see.....him and his one leg...

The Yarnery on Grand Avenue

I can barely contain my excitement as I post my very first St. Paul picture taken with my fancy pants camera and posted on my fancy pants brand new laptop. Hopefully there will be many more in the future and the quality of the photos will improve.
