this weekend

He did it!
Dan finally bought his kayak!
Here it is loaded up on the Jeep ready for it's first of many adventures...

I'm so happy for my husband, he loves the outdoors and has missed his canoe every beautiful weekend since he sold it. After a friend lamented he had just bought a kayak and had no one to boat with, Dan gleefully and unselfishly decided to help him out.

Sunday afternoon was perfect- 75 degrees, a slight wind, blue skies. I took the inaugural pics and hullabalooed from the grass until he paddled far out into the lake. Then I sat in the shade and read with my ice cold vanilla coke from Sonic. {Oh yea! Sonic!}

Louisiana is beautiful in a sloppy, flat kind of way... it's our home, and I love the people and the wild spaces that make it who it is.

My turn in the kayak, I liked it. Thought I might feel trapped but it was fun gliding through the water, not as much work as the canoe was!
