Degrees of May

It is currently 87.3 degrees on this beautiful spring day in Grapevine, Texas.  87.3 degrees (I don't know how to make the little circle sign for degrees) is pretty near perfect for a hot summer day...  If only that qualified as a "hot summer day" in Texas.  Last summer we had multiple weeks with highs over 100.  This is NOT something we're accustomed to.

Luckily, it's still May and the heat is bearable.  Last night we headed out to the lake and took some pictures.  

I've been trying the manual mode on the camera which is a bit dangerous because I have 10% of the knowledge needed to be successful. (That's 9.7% more than last week :)

Can you believe that this is Texas?  Well, Texas with a seriously doctored photo.  

This is closer to what it really looked like.  Sorry to ruin the fantasy, but I wouldn't want you to think Texas was a tropical paradise....  

It's paradise all right, but more like a paradise for cowboys, big bugs, and birds that make really strange noises.  Oh, and also, people who like fried foods.  That includes me...  (the master of finger steaks and french fries).  The End.
