Out for a Sunday Stroll

it was a beautiful spring day on Sunday.
we got out for a walk.
we put on our rain..puddle..mud..rubber boots (whatever you want to call them).
into the wagon went our son (who's sick right now)
and onto the road we went.

that's right.  
not bush.
so then why the rubber boots?

our town is in emergency mode.
due to flooding.

The kids were riding their bikes on this road just 2 weeks ago...
i was running on this road last week.
we were now going to wade on this road.

we went in to town to check things out.
i'll post those later.

Spring Thunderstorm!

I love spring.

i love thunderstorms.

i anticipate the first spring thunderstorm 
(although please come in the day, i don't do so well being awakened by it.)

in honor of today.

our first thunderstorm of the spring.

here are some pics of a thunderstorm i captured rolling in on Georgian Bay.

we were driving and saw the clouds rolling in.  so as soon as we could find a nice spot we pulled over and went down to the beach.  everyone else was leaving the beach as we were walking down.
we sat on some rocks.

i took so many with the hopes that i would get one of lightning.
i was ecstatic when i got this simple shot.

these were the rocks we were sitting on.  it is so exciting watching the clouds roll in, and to hear the thunder and see the lignetning, and it gets closer..and closer

as we were walking away from the beach we turned and saw the seagulls enjoying the coming storm. and the quiet beach.  it rained pretty hard after this picture.

the first day of spring has come and gone.
winter, however, has decided it's not going out without a fight.
it. is. spring.
no matter what the weather is.

here's some pictures for you to enjoy.
enjoy the colors of the flowers, the greens of the grass..
it's spring.

We decorated some hard boiled eggs for easter.

so we took it outside and... 

...colored the snow!
