Welcome Summer!

June 22nd, 2007

Hot, humid and busy days this week.  Summer is upon us, and the temperatures agree… it was 90 F today and sunny.  I’ve always been one to enjoy air conditioning here- the humidity is so high it can be overpowering in the afternoons.  We have not had enough rain the past month, and so much needs watering.  I can hardly keep up with all the hoses… some day maybe we will put an irrigation system around the house and property- that would be wonderful!  But here are a few pictures of the young lab at the lake- it was nice to be in the water. 

This picture was overexposed, but with a little adjustment it made a neat black and white picture.  He’s such a happy Labrador Retriever!  The puppy became quite the “boat dog.”  He loved jumping to the dock, or just sleeping in the boat.  And he “fell in the water” a few times as well.  Swam like a pro and climbed back up the ladder!

 I had fun being pulled on a tube behind the boat.  It was my first time, and yes- I finally fell out…  You can see the big splash… that’s me!

Another picture of the Yellow Lab… he enjoyed laying down in the front of the boat.  It was fun to have him with us!
