Our Lake Is Filling Up

Me and my son wanted to see how filled the lake is since it rained a lot this winter.  The last time we visited it was the lowest we've ever seen it.

This is what it looks like now.  It's still not filled up all the way, but it's getting there.

Then, we took a drive over to Folsom Bridge to see what it looked like.

We had lunch at a restaurant over looking the bridge.   We shared a Mediterranean pizza with feta cheese and Greek olives, Yummy.

After that we drove over to the town of Folsom.  I love this building, and it's the color that I'm so fond of right now, mint.

Stopped to get some chocolate and go to a few of my favorite shops.

 It was a fun day with my son.
It's raining hard this weekend,
and our lake is filling
up even more.

What a delightful day with your son!

Oh that pizza!!!!!

Love the old hotel! I take it, the main street of this place, is into preserving old architecture....

Folsom, is that the general site of the (made famous in song) prison? :-))))

Good Morning Sheri,
What a lovely outing with your son, I am so glad that the two of you share so much joy together in similiar things.
I am glad that you are having rain, what a blessing that is.
The pizza looks wonderful, and since I just returned from a long walk, I sure would like a bite!

Wonderful news and photos of the lake filling up with water. Very nice outing you and your son enjoyed. Do I spot artichokes on that pizza? YUM. You know what Sheri - Dorothea's Shoppe sign is just so adorable and happy I would have to go into her shop and purchase something and hopefully her bags are printed with her shops sign too. I always enjoy your photo essays my friend. Have a lovely week ahead.

The last photo is my favorite. :-)
I hope you get a good amount of rain.
I love the relationship you have with your son. Special! I pray that for me and my boys as they grow up too. They will want to share a day with me like you did this.

What a lovely place for you and your son to enjoy, Sheri! The lake is lovely and I imagine with more rain it's filling up more. Times spent with our grown children are so special. I loved seeing all of your beautiful photos! ♥

What a great day with your son. Lots of fun places to visit.


Dewena said...

I love that mint color too and it would be wonderful to see all the lakes that have been low get back to normal. A few hours away with one grown child at a time mean so very much. We get too busy for that sometimes but it is well worth it.

Beauty Follower said...

Nice photos... must be wonderful to stroll along the lake!
Yummy pizza... like feta too!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Beautiful pictures Sherri. So glad that you had a wonderful day with your son. That pizza looks divine.

We had some rain, but not as much as you did up North. Hopefully we will get more tomorrow.

Have a great week.

Dearest Sheri, what a gorgeous day to spend with YOUR SON. The quaint town....we did that yesterday too, on our anniversary. The simplicity of it all was so celebratory. I saw my horses, got good photos, I was happy. Be well, be happy, and let your cup runneth over.

Hiya Sheri,

It's wonderful to see the lake filling up. You guys have had some rain as we have. In fact, reports say it's been the wettest winter on record here in Oregon. Thanks for the share of your lovely lake, the town pics (esp that pizza, oh how I miss pizza!), and always, your good reads!

Have a great week ahead!

Such a lovely day to spend with your son.
The lake looks wonderful ... and yes that building is in tune with your mint colour!

Hope you have a happy week.

All the best Jan

Beautiful Photos Sheri. I'm glad you all are getting some much needed rain. Hugs and Blessings, xo

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

Love that old hotel! Glad to know you're getting the rain you need. I do believe our drought in Oregon is over, now if only the Bay Area would get what they need. Happy March and Spring to you!

Good evening dear Sheri,
What a wonderful day you had with your son.. The lake is beautiful, and I love this town.. You always take such gorgeous photos.. Thank you so much for sharing.

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words. Oh yes, the hills in Temecula are so green and beautiful compared to the ones in my area. Everything is so lush in Temecula..

Oh yes, it is raining here too! I love to bake when it's raining.. I baked a French Vanilla cake today...
Enjoy your week dear friend

Tulla and Catie said...

It's a nice landscape which you are showing to us - I love water very much and it's good that the lake is being refilled now! From time to time I am also having a mother/daughter day. I think it's important to keep the connection and the bond between us. Besides it's always a great pleasure :).
Enjoy your time with the kids,

Susan said...

Oh Sheri. How wonderful you get to spend quality days with your son. Everything looked like so much fun. And that pizza! Yum. Thanks so much for sharing. Susan

Hi Sheri,

What a wonderful day you had out with your Son and isn't it always great to be able to spend time with our children.
You will be pleased to have rain there and will be good for your roses and to fill up the lake. Thanks for your kind visit today and I look forward to seeing your pink room when you finish.
hope you are enjoying the week

Holly said...

Hurray for the water! Last summer it was a crazy rocky drive down to the water to swim in Folsom Lake. I haven't been to Old Folsom in so long. My mom used to take us to see the Indian Grinding Rocks and shop in the Indian Store that had beads and tons of cats.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Sheri, looks like a wonderful outing with your son. Such special times and memory makers. So glad you are getting the much needed rain. It has been raining here since Sunday. We needed it, so it has been nice.
Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. Hope you have a nice weekend ahead. Blessings my friend. xo

I'm so glad California is finally getting rain again. My aunt that lives in Newport Beach was worried she'd lose her entire garden and I know she wasn't the only one.

That's a darling little town :)
