Saturday Snapshot

I haven't participated in Saturday Snapshot since October.  10 months ago!
I guess there is no time like the present to jump back in.

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by
To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post to West Metro Mommy Reads!   Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

My snapshots are of a little girlfriend trip I took this summer.
Our friend, Mitzi moved from Nevada, back to her home in Minnesota (after 20 years away), 3 years ago. She turned 50 in July, so a few of us decided to fly out to help her celebrate.

I have never been to the Midwest.  Had never seen fireflies, OH WAIT--Lightning Bugs (as I was told they are really called.  Silly Westerners!) or a male cardinal is all his full glory.
Guess what?  I was lucky enough to see both the first night, so I texted the Handyman and said,  "I've seen fireflies and a red bird.  My life is complete"
He texted me back and said, "I'm sorry I couldn't do that for you."
Well, you know, sitting on a front porch with a glass of wine watching Lightening bugs (sigh) that truly is hard to beat!

One day we drove over the Mississippi River to Wisconsin and went to a winery.
It was tons of fun!  Mitzi's husband was our chauffer.  April's husband (they had taken a 3 week RV trip across the states and met us in Minnesota) was his wing man.  They let us be as silly as we wanted.
And we were--very silly.

Here are snapshots of us being silly at the winery.
Please do not be offended by... well, you'll see. (sorry)

Our drivers had 'one' beer and then pretended they were bored.  But really, the laughed at all our antics!

 Like all of us trying to pose for a nice picture.
Not sure we ever got 'nice', but close enough.

What happened was---someone accidentally touched someone's chest and then... well the antics ensued.

 okay---family friendly again.

 This one is pretty nice!

What I saw of Wisconsin was really pretty.
Grape Vineyards!
We love them.

And those are my Saturday Snapshots.
Where are yours?

What wonderful friends you have! Looks like you had a marvelous time. Silliness is good for the soul. No, I wasn't offended at all.
My Saturday Snapshot post features Dungeness Spit.

Looks like you all had a wonderful time together. Great shots in that beautiful area.

Looks like a wonderful trip - so great that you had that opportunity with old friends!

I can;t believe you'd never seen fireflies before! I thought they were everywhere (we live on the East coast & there are plenty).

Now that you's seen the regular ones, you need to visit Smoky National Park in TN to see their synchronous fireflies!

Thanks for sharing -
