Is it really spring???

It is finally beginning to feel like spring here.  That is if you consider rainy weather spring.  That is what's happening so far this week.  Which is much better than the snow we had last week.  The temps are getting to be so nice also!  Right now I am sitting by the open window, listening to the patter of the rain, enjoying the cool breeze while I watch Army Wives and write this post.

Between storms on Saturday we took our brand new canoe out for a spin row around a small area of Ennis lake.  It was a good time.  Our doxie even loved it!  She also loved having her life vest on which really surprised me.  I was worried that she would be afraid of the boat and the water but she wasn't.  She really loves her adventures!  Here are a few pictures.

Even though there are no pictures of me (the camera lady), I assure you I also joined in the fun.  It was a wonderful afternoon followed by a nice dinner on our way home at a small town restaurant built in a historical schoolhouse. Great food, great atmosphere, excellent company!

I am just really happy that it is finally beginning to look and feel like spring.  I am happy about the warmer temps and the trees and flowers beginning to bloom.  I am looking forward to upcoming hikes, geocaching, camping, fishing, more canoeing and getting out to use our hovercraft that my DH just got finished rebuilding. We also have a trip to Texas in June that I am excited about.  There are a lot of things to look forward to now that spring is here and summer is just around the corner.  I can't wait!

What are your spring and summer plans?

I want to go kayaking! That looks like a blast, and I have a friend who keeps inviting me, but it never works out. Maybe this summer!

Great pictures!

That looks like an inflatable. Who gets to blow it up?
