Mankato Calendar Submissions

Last year I submitted photos to the city of Mankato for their annual calendar contest.  
I had a photo that made it in!  So I am trying again this year.  
Let me know which ones you like!! :-D
I can submit 15.  Do you think I submit them all?  


I can't decide which one I like better. I feel the cold in the top picture
and the bottom has such great colors reflecting of the sun setting!  


At the Minnesota River behind the Kiwanis Dog Park

Goats at Sibley Park Zoo

After the spring thaw.  The Minnesota river was very high in Sibley Park

Mankato Symphony Orchestra playing at the new Riverfront Park

I like the boy and man holding hands

I really like the reflection of the sun in this photo.  But I am afraid they won't like the orbs.  I also like the rainbow reflecting off of this guys bike tire.  I also like the symmetry of all of the curves.

Always loved and never forgotten.

Happy times,
How time flies
Fourteen years to be exact. 

Peaceful, Calm, at ease
Thank you for the fond memories

It is hard to think of how far you have came to where it has all ended.  
Your sweet face, lovely smile and gentle kisses have mended
a bad day
because you have a special way

So much happiness and such,
You are still loved ever so much.

You where the silent secret keeper.  
Always the happy greeter

Guardian, protector and comforter.   
Loving as a mother. 

The end was hard. 
But we must remember how you loved to play in the yard. 

Pick up a toy, chase a rabbit, roll in the grass.  
You have definately left your memory among the mass.  

You did not make enemies.  
Only fond memories. 

Running, Jumping, chasing  and playing

Protecting, comforting, always pleasing
Constantly appeasing.  

Our best friend 
to the end.  
Always loved and never forgotten.
