Photo of the week

With the start of school, summer seems to be in the rear-view mirror. Here’s a photo captured several weeks ago of two Shakopee girls enjoying SandVenture Aquatic Park.

Reader Amy Hutson sent in this photo of her daughter and a friend enjoying the SandVenture Aquatic Park in Shakopee earlier this year.

“They took advantage of it today after watching their Shakopee baseball brothers play baseball all weekend long!” she wrote. “They enjoyed it for a few minutes all to themselves even!”

The park is now closed for the season, meaning it’s time to embrace fall.
