It is finally spring! Friday DD and I took the grands to see HOP. Saturday and Sunday I put them to work spring cleaning closets and cabinets and sorting all their toys (Civitan has a yard sale coming up, and I need to clean). The boys helped wash my car, then we dyed eggs. Monday we got a great mountain bike ride in. Only 11 miles, but they were beautiful miles. The roads and trails were nice (except where they are cutting trees), weather was perfect and I had a great time. Then we did some yard work and put the kayak carrier on the truck. Today we got a bike ride, did family lunch, put the receiver hitch on the van, took the kayaks out for a tour of one of our water shed lakes. Just as we got home FedEx delivered the new radio for my car. So after supper DH put it in and now I can just plug in my iPod or a USB stick and I'm good to go.
Live is good!

DGS had a good week at school and REALLY wanted to go camping. So, I packed up the camper and when DH got home from 4 days of back packing in the snow in TN, he threw his clothes in the washer, got a bath, ate dinner, loaded the kayaks in the truck, and off we went for a weekend of camping. It was late when we got there, but we set up our site and got ready for a fun day Saturday. We had the two of us, the 2 grands, DD#2, and her dog, so it was a bit more crowded than usual, but we managed just fine.
Saturday we got up early and DGS #2 didn't want to kayak on the river, so everyone else went.
and he and I walked to the playground.
Then we went fishing, and he caught the only one of the day, he was very proud.
Saturday afternoon was filled with a nap, a hike, an ice cream social with games, a ride on Mr Paul's ATV, dinner, and campfire with friends and of course Smores (yes, I did have one).
This morning we slept in then got in the lake with the kayaks.
The boys and DD tried out other modes of transportation as well.
We all came home very tired and ready for dinner and bed. Hopefully we had another memory filled weekend.

DD and SonIL were both working yesterday, so the grands came to our house after school. We decided to experiment and see if they would/could ride in the kayaks, and they loved it. We can't turn the youngest lose by himself, but he rides really well. Didn't get a picture of him in the kayak with me, but we did get out and paddle around the lake.
Got in a little fishing, too. Didn't catch a thing this time, but it was fun anyway.
Today it is almost cold. What is going on with the weather this year?
