It has been so warm and we had such a great summer last year hanging out at the lake, that my kids really wanted to go and see if it was thawed. I told them I was pretty sure it was, but that it would likely be very cold. We figured out a time to go, they wore their swimsuits, although only one of them brought a towel. The rowing team was there, but it looked like they were leaving, so over to the beachfront we went. All but my oldest had come for this, and all 7 of them got very wet and the good swimmers swam and loved it!! Once one of them got out and started shivering without a towel, I figured it was time to get, go home and take baths. I’m sure we’ll be returning often!!
This is a branch from a tree in my backyard getting ready to bloom. There are lots of dandelions and forsythia, I saw my first tulips in town starting to open up. I am soaking up all the warmth and all the time I can be outside without a sweater and no boots. It’s awesome!! Yay for spring!!
