Folsom Lake

I am in love! I typically hate swimming in bodies of water in which I can't see through (oceans, rivers, lakes). I had a bad experience with a tiny leech on my toe once. But I wont go too far into that. Folsom lake is heaven! Its clean, there is this amazing lady that sells snow cones and the water is clean and not too cold.
The only change I would have made, and I can't believe I'm going to say this, is I'd have liked the weather to be hotter. We decided to go on a day that it was barely going to hit 90 (which in these neck of the woods is a nice day). If the temps were a little higher the temp of the water would have been PERFECT!

Had these Van's for 7+ years. Take that Toms!
I can't wait to go back! Sadly the weather this week wont be warm enough to go (did I just say sadly?!). I know someday I will be living up in Folsom and someday I'll have a family there. Sitting with Shane and his sister I could just envision that so clear. It made me really excited. Being there also made me realize I should be stocking up on water toys. Noodles and at least an inner tube is a must at this lake. I have a feeling this summer is going to be a great one.

Today Shane and I are going to Yuba City area. My friend is taking her baby swimming for the first time ever! Of course I had to be there to witness it.
Its so much fun to see this little girl grow. My friend Stephanie and I have been friends so long. Its still such a trip she had a baby! I can't wait to see them. I hope you all enjoy your Sunday. Have a great week!


  1. The lake sounds beautiful! I hope to see more pictures of it next time you guys go. Have fun swimming with the baby!

  2. How fun! I have never gone but now I totally want to!

  3. I'm scared of Lakes... but I will go next year because I don't want my daughter to feel the same. Strangely I swim in the sea and I'm not scared.

    P.S. We are giving away 2 books from Studio Violet. Stop By :)
