Today was only like the second or third day of the summer where it has been hot enough for one to say "wow" it is hot and it is summer! :) Just yesterday, I was thinking to myself how much I love Oregon's weather. It gets hot, but it still cools off in the night and into the morning.
Today the kids and I went to a local park that I love. We met some friends there for some good old fashion fun in the sun. The park has water fountains - just enough water to keep you cool and get the sand wet to play in. It was about 90 degrees when we finally left at 1 in the afternoon. You could tell that we have not been to the park in a while, let alone one with water, because the kids went wild and had a blast. They never complained about the wet sand in their swimsuits. I was actually able to chat with my friend without too many interruptions. At one point I looked at my friend and commented on how I had not heard a peep out of Molly in quite some time. Ahh, the joys of age with child! :)
I share some of the pictures from today. I, of course, brought along the camera because I had yet to capture any pictures of the kids in swimsuits this year. Enjoy!
