Iam thinking of either buying a boat or just saying we have lake front, well ok make that lake back, property. Yes this is our pond in our back yard. When the snow melts and the rain starts this is what happens! The kids love to splash in the water when it warms up a bit. I hate all this water because some of it end up in our basement also. YUCK. I hope to be posting some pictures of the boys playing in the water soon.
