Spring Splash!

It was a lovely day on Tuesday and Leah and I took the dogs for a walk out in the fields.  The temperature was warm and the sun was shining so the snow was melting.  Around here, melting snow in March means fun little rivers of rushing water to play in.  Luckily, Leah and I wore our Bogs (best mud/water boots EVER!) and so we were free to stomp, splash and wade to our heart's content. 

I didn't remember my camera so I resorted to snapping photos
with my cell phone.  Any port in a storm, right?

Luckily, Leah was a willing model.

We were having fun

playing in the little rivers of rushing water.

I cannot tell you how musical the sound of
rushing water was to my ears!

I don't know why the next two photos ended up
sideways, but I'm not deleting them!

Lacey was cold and shivering, so Leah was kind enough
to transport her around the rivers and "lakes" so that she
wouldn't have to walk through them.  As you can see,
she got plenty wet anyway.  She's an adventurous little pup
and is always a willing walking partner!

Looks like a fun time. Poor Lacey!

That looks like a lot of fun! (and your daughter is so lovely.) I am wishing for a bit of your cool weather and some streams of water right about now... we're having summer temps and a drought, and wildfires north of us are making the air thick with smoke!

p.s. I love to watch summer thunderstorms, too :)
