Heat it up.
It hasn't felt like summer is almost here. We have had such a cold and gray spring - but over the past few days it finally started to heat up. We also started getting the crazy thunderstorms that make me feel that warm weather is finally here to stay.
When it gets HOT the boys want to get out to the beach. A favorite spot has a good amount of shade and is across the street from an ice cream shop. Perfect! Thursday afternoon we hit the beach a bit to watch the boats go by, get our toes in the sand and eat some popcicles before the storms hit (of course many beaches closed the very next day due to algae - go figure!).
Last night we had another round of storms - but of course wanted to go out for ice cream. We are lucky to be able to take a short drive out into the farmland and have ice cream right at a local creamery. The view was amazing - farms and storms as far as the eye could see.
And today? HOT! The boys wanted to get out in the yard and get wet! They dragged out a pool which has been in the darkest corner of the garage all winter, filled it up and let it warm up a bit before jumping in.
They splashed and played...ahhh, yes, it does feel like summer. The weekend is not over - we have friends coming for a solstice bbq tomorrow, and even more heat is on its way.
Summer, here we come!
