Focus on Woodbury Photo Contest: Life on Mars

You never know what will pop up in the garden. Just ask Sarah Kroening. “While harvesting tomatoes last August, I noticed a small speck of what appeared to be dirt on one of the tomatoes,” Kroening says. “Upon further inspection, I noticed the perfect swirl of a snail shell. It was so small that I just had to show my mom; that’s when it popped its head out to say hello.” Read more about Focus on Woodbury Photo Contest: Life on Mars

Focus on Woodbury: Thirsty Pup at Carver Lake

Last summer, Mandi Folks and her family attended the Carver Lake Camp Out, organized annually by the city of Woodbury Parks and Recreation department. “Our family loves Minnesota summers; we try to spend as much time outdoors as possible,” Folks says. “Our children enjoyed the camp out’s scavenger hunts and games, s’mores and playing at the beach. I had brought my camera along and when I noticed one family’s dog (Lola) reaching down for a drink in the lake, I thought it would make a beautiful image with the ripples in the background.” Read more about Focus on Woodbury: Thirsty Pup at Carver Lake

Focus on Woodbury: Bathtime is Lots of Fun

When Mandi Folks and her family moved into their Woodbury home in 2012, “it was in very rough condition,” she says. “We have been fixing it up little by little over the past three years, and finally got around to repairing the bathtub in the master bathroom. Our three boys were delighted with their first opportunity to take a bubble bath. As you can tell, Maverick, 5, Mitchell, 7, and Macallan, 3, jumped head-first into the bubbles with no reservations. Their sister Jovie, 1, was much more reserved and observant.” Read more about Focus on Woodbury: Bathtime is Lots of Fun

Focus on Woodbury: Hero

After the birth of their third child, Amanda and Carl McGrane stopped by the Woodbury Fire Station on Thames Road to take some photos with Carl’s fire gear. “I snapped this shot of Carl and our 2-year-old son, Cole, as they were sharing a moment,” Amanda says. “Carl is a paid-on-call (POC) firefighter/EMT for the city of Woodbury, an awesome opportunity to serve the community. He’s definitely Cole’s hero. Cole wants to be a firefighter like daddy when he grows up.” Read more about Focus on Woodbury: Hero
