Spring at Green Lake

Now that Spring is Officially Here, it's time to really get outside and do something. Since my back is still hurting, this weekend that meant going someplace pretty and then lying down.

So we went to Green Lake, our favorite place to run, and for the first time we took a blanket and some magazines and just sprawled out lazily. It turns out lots of other people do this too but I've always been so busy running that I never noticed. Another funny thing - we've probably run around that lake 300 times and neither of us could remember where the beach was.

The Studly Hubby brought his tripod and spent some time taking pictures. There were lots of good things to see.

Me, in my most comfortable position. Notice the book in front of me - it's the Studly Hubby's new ASP.Net book! This is what he brings to read on a leisurely spring day (and you all voted that I was the bigger nerd...!)

The fishermen hung out by the water the whole time we were lounging on our blanket - and I don't think they ever caught anything (but they didn't seem to mind either).

We finally got a picture of the "Spanish Lessons" guy - he wears a vest that says "Spanish Lessons" and walks around the lake looking for customers. Here he is walking with a customer (and I assure you they are speaking in Spanish).

This is the only thing I could think of that would be more sublime than what we were already doing - but not by much.
