A taste of summer

It was that kind of a day.

A shorts and t-shirt kind of day.

A barefoot kind of day.

A kids on the dock kind of day.

A watch the bottom of the lake kind of day.

A dangle your feet in the water until they scream "bone pain!" from the cold kind of day.

A trampoline kind of day.

A water fight on the lawn kind of day.

A canoeing kind of day.

A driftwood swordfight on the beach kind of day.

A kayaking kind of day.

A beachcombing kind of day.

Not even the birch trees have begun leafing out, and not even my kids were willing to actually immerse themselves in the lake, but today was teasingly a lot like summer anyway.

    Ahhh - this post in particular makes living in the Kootenays look amazing. To have a beautiful lake so accessible must be fantastic.

    Nice to see the kids enjoyed it!

  2. LOL about the "bone pain!" thing. My kids eat ice-cream and scream "brain freeze!" I think in a similar tone.
