Week two of summer vacation has begun, and if it's anything at all like the first week or so was, we'll be glad. It was a great start to my time off, with plenty of sunshine, lots of cold treats and various water "sports" keeping us busy. Want to take a look?
This was the temperature on Wednesday, which was probably the hottest afternoon we had. It hit 39 degrees celsius in our garden! It's cooled down a bit since then, and is hovering around a slightly more civilized 30 or 31...
When it's hot like that, sometimes you just want to take all your clothes off and go for a ride on your trike. If you get going fast enough, you might create a cool breeze, right?
A popsicle or two (or twelve) can help to cool you down.
Purple popsicle tongues are hilarious, are they not?
I've got a pretty strict "no guns allowed" rule in our house, so we call these "water blasters." They work the same as water guns, but I feel a bit better about letting the boys play with them. I know that's sort of ridiculous, but whatever.
Pugh boys getting ready for the deluge.
He looks so friendly when he's about to blast you with cold water, doesn't he?
A few action shots. I love these!
Especially this one. Look at his face!
The week ahead is filling up fast. We have plans to get together with a few of my old friends, to go for a picnic at the lake and to spend a morning at the water park with preschool friends. We'll be getting ready for the summer festival parade next weekend by practicing our bike riding/waving skills (this is seriously one of the cutest things I've ever seen, Dylan riding his bike with one hand, smiling, and waving to the imaginary crowds with the other!) and I've got my first book club meeting on Tuesday night. Looking forward to all of it!
I love summer, don't you? How has yours been so far?
