From our house to Jason's

This is a picture of pictures from my house on the far right to my cousins on the far left. I’m not to thrilled with the size of the picture to share with you but it is 5 pictures put together. But you get the idea when I say we are county neighbors. There’s us (all the white things are our homes), my parents, across the lake my grandparents, my uncles and then my cousins. Between the 5 of us we own about 250 acres. I took these pictures from the second 40 acres.

Daddy and I took a walk today, in the rain. It all started out with I went out to do chores and fell down in the mud. So I was wet from chores, muddy from falling so figured it was a great time to just stay out and take some pictures. You’ll see a bunch I took shortly. Daddy and I walked about 5 miles total and Wilbur came with and I bet he walked/ran at least 10 miles because he’d run away, bark and chase something and then come back and check in and off he’d go again. Anyways daddy and I had a great time. I don’t know of too many daughter and dads that will go for a walk together come rain or shine, winter or summer, –30* or 80*. It’s good for us both physically and mentally and so good for our relationship.

We have had almost 5” of rain in the past two weeks so our pond and lake is up. But it has helped green everything up or most everything. We have lots of trees that are still working on budding out and the swamps aren’t green yet but everything is getting there. So here’s a few of the pictures I took.

In the order they are, there’s our pond, rain on the pine needles, apple blossoms, more rain on needles, Trillium wild flower, our pond from down by it, my dad’s lake, Wilbur on daddy’s dock on his lake, Wilbur looking up the creek into daddy’s lake, a beaver dam on the other end of daddy’s lake and our flag with a couple rows of trees. I love green, I love spring and up coming summer. I love my walks with my daddy. Oh how I love this life of mine.

I hope you all have a great evening. Tomorrow is TGIF and also Friday Follow and New Friend Friday. Remember to stop by and sign up to meet and greet some new people. I’ll be there. Take care and God Bless!!

I love your line, "Oh how i love this life of mine"!!!

The 5 pictures you said you put together have been put together incredibly well! Very cool.

Love the reflection in the pond.

I don't go for walks anymore, but mum and dad do. I make my dad watch tv with me, he sleeps, i pinch him to stay awake. How nice am i? But i get pecked on my cheek several several times a day by him, just like that :) I love that i'll always be little for mum and dad.

You have so much beauty around you! I love the outdoors. Eventually we plan to sell our house in Fl and move to SC. We are just waiting for the kids to graduate because we don't want to uproot them from their school and friends. We live on the outskirts of the main city and off a main road. (yuck)

I really enjoy your photos. Keep them coming!
