We're all melting.
As beautiful as it is outside, we have quickly been reminded how much babies HATE the heat. Especially when you have too many rolls to count that need airing out. The popsicle stash has been replenished multiple times already and the sunscreen stocked up to match the high temperatures and sunny skies. Trips to Edaleen Dairy to enjoy an afternoon delight have been taste tasted and successful lemonade stands were set up to help others cool off.
We've had pre-dips at Lake Whatcom and the local creek has been used many times to cool off already. A mister has been purchased to keep the adults calm and beach towels are now a staple to the back patio. The summer long mission to blend our poorly mixed matched tan lines begins.
Myriam was invited to camp with Papa and Nana at Deception Pass this past weekend while the others and I watched the Farmer's Day Parade from the Windmill deck. It was entertaining to see the buzz of people creating the World's longest strawberry shortcake.
The kids and I have been mapping out our summer day-date schedule with attempts to visit as many parks as possible over the summer months. Sometimes it's the stay-cations that are the most fun rather than pack em' up and drive for hours to your destination.
This week is the last official week of school classes although I do have a few things left for the kids to accomplish before we can call it "SCHOOL'S OUT!!!"
Until then, we will keep the fans on, be thankful for a chilled basement and enjoy the Northwest in it's prime berry season.
