Of all the things I love about living where we live, I am most grateful for the beautiful conservation area about a half-kilometer down the road. Today we were blessed with a break in the rain, long enough to get out for a paddle with the kids, my parents and my brother. It was such a relief to have a sunny afternoon, and we sure did make the most of it!
Just as we were pulling the canoes out of the water, dark clouds began to roll in. Within a half-hour, rain was spitting down and soon we were hit with a major thunderstorm. We were so lucky to get our canoeing in before the rain, and so thankful for a bit of sun in an otherwise very rainy couple of months.
