Taste of Summer

74 degrees on March 16th?!  We'll TAKE IT.  The last few days have been very warm here.  It starts out chilly...

But by afternoon, the peeps strip off their jackets and shoes and have at it.

I'm very surprised we still have ice.  2 years ago the ice was out on March 17th.  And it was so warm this winter, you'd think it would be about out.  So far, no luck.  The next few pictures are for Lingy.  Do you think we need some rain???  Yikes!  The lake is usually up to the tires.

See all that mud...yeah, usually covered by water.  Ummmmmm

Its very attractive to potential buyers.  HA.  And an added bonus - it smells lovely.

The kids have been swinging constantly.  I was struck down my the flu (I think??) and had a fever for most of the day on Wednesday thru early Thursday morning.  These swing pics were all I could manage.  They had no jackets or shoes on.  I was wearing 2 pairs of pants, 2 shirts, a heavy sweatshirt with socks and shoes.  Fevers SUCK!

And it was time to open and close the screen door 500 times - one of Avery's favorite summer activities.  She's getting started early this year.

We also worked on a bit of yoga.  Ya know, like you do on March 16th with a frozen lake as your backdrop!  Did it last year and its likely I'll do it again next year too!  Avery was adorable trying to copy me.

This happened.  And that was pretty much it for his outdoor time.  He was NOT happy.  The mere SIGHT of blood sends him into a screaming panic.

So maybe we'll get more pics tomorrow when the high is once again supposed to be 74! : )  Happy early summer!  hahaha
