Traversing a snowy field with the Snow Striker was a bit of an arduous journey.
But once we arrived at Lake Michigan, the real winter fun began.
Sam discovered that the edge of the lake was littered with thousands of balls of ice.
We were captivated by them for almost an hour. Sam liked to break them off and throw them into the lake.
In my tough winter boots, my favorite thing to do was to kick them loose and directly into the lake.
They floated there awhile.
The lake is such a lovely backdrop. It wasn't too sunny, which gave us nice diffused light every-
I took a bunch of pictures. Check out more pictures of Mary & Sam kicking balls of ice into Lake Michigan in this Flickr set.
