Ranen needed a giant Freezee to cool off (she actually thought she needed two). Micah pleaded for one as well...but had to be content with cold water.
Yesterday was another blistering hot day...and the grands from next door called to see if they could come over and slip-n-slide. We laughed as we watched the girls sliding...since the slide seemed rather short for them now. It was purchased when they were four years old...and that was four years ago. I pulled out the blender and whipped up some blizzards...just like the ones I used to make when their dad was wee. They slipped-and-slid down quite nicely!
At the end of the day...we drove out to the lake...thinking everyone else would have gone home. Not so! Though the sun was about to set...the beaches were still busy...and the parking stalls were mostly full.
It was the perfect evening for a walk along the beach.
Others were trying to stay cool out on the water...
...staying out until the darkness closed in.
It's summertime! I like it.
