I heart dogwood blooms
Pretty purple blooms; and a lovely tilled patch of dirt (kind of a rarity in Spy Garden at the moment!)
Remains to be seen if these two (one of two pictured) banana plants will come back
Purple and green
Hanging out in the yard with Spy Sister (note Babt literally hanging upside down in the Eno hammock!)
Unicycle practice! (It is hard!)
Baby does all sorts of tricks with this Eno hammock
Face off haha
A gooseberry already! (seedlings were started indoors)
Hardy kiwi vines coming in strong (still need to make a trellis for these and the grape vines)
I spy a skink! (but no snakes spotted yet; we are wondering if they spent the winter in this tree again)
Unidentified woodland bloom
More blooms in the woods
A mossy perch
In her element
Hanging at the playground at baseball practice
Enjoying the clover (rather than weeding it, ha!)
There’s a full spring load of weeding, planting, tilling and building of support structures to do yet! But enough about the garden…We took our canoe on it’s maiden voyage!!!
Smoochie and I taught Baby’s school’s kindergarten class about water safety.
It was so fun to pull out all our old raft guide gear and show it off!
Raft guide gear bag from Unicorn Expeditions (where Smoochie and I met as raft guides!)
All the kids got to take several canoe rides around this lake (in Cuivre River State Park)
Dexie entertained the kids while they waited their turn!
Dexie also enjoyed swimming of course
Who doesn’t love a canoe ride?!
Drizzly but serene
We are going to call this canoe the SS Unicorn (after the rafting company we worked for)
After all the kids/parents left we all piled in for our own ride…
Aaaand we’re off!
Being on the water is always so rejuvenating (even on a cloudy day!)
And check out our new high tech canoe rack! lol (a foam roller cut into pieces, $14! and it worked like a charm! We had straps on there too obviously!)
Little girl, big paddle!
We are excited to explore other waterways in our area (the Black River and Current River are on the top of my list)! Hope you all are enjoying spring in your neck of the woods!
