Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Spring.
Note: Mom couldn’t join us for CCC this week, Erin and Mom are together in Carbondale and I am vacationing in Washington D.C., so this week’s CCC is a little wonky.
From Erin who is usually in Bellingham, Washington, but who is in Carbondale, Illinois with Mom this week:
Spring is here, as evidence by the fact that I am at my Grandpa’s farm in Southern Illinois. Every spring break, through my whole grade school and into college education, my dad, sister, and I would drive down I-57 to Carbondale to visit my aunt, uncle and grandmother before heading through Vienna, IL to ‘the farm.’ We swam in this pond where the blue gill would nibble our toes! Its an amazing feeling to be back here at the right time of year once again.
From me who is usually in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but who is in Washington D.C. this week:
What says “spring” more than the Washington DC tidal basin cherry blossoms in full bloom? Nothing, that’s what.
