Sun and Fun

 How many days until summer officially begins?  Just a few!  It already feels like summer in our backyard.  Bill spent quite a bit of time in the early morning pumping up the pool and filling it with very cold water.  
 Sam wanted to have a party for her rainbow snake.  We did!  

 We may have gone a little overboard on sugar today.  



 James was with us, too.  I left my phone inside during some of the splashing so I didn't get a photo of the speedy little puddle jumper!  
 And here is some lovely lobelia.  Mmmmmm.
Tomorrow morning (before 6am) I must head over to Kelli's and pick up the three mermaids so they can attend their swim meet.  Mommy and Daddy will fly away to Mexico and our six day stint will begin.  Pray that I don't melt at the swim meet.  It's been REALLY hot here.
After the meet we'll come home and cool off and get ourselves all situated. They have theater camp all week so Granny must stay on top of the schedule.  I'm looking forward to good conversations with them, artsy work at the dining room table, and ice cream runs.
I hope June is treating you very well this year!  See you soon!

hope there will be time for a rest in that schedule somewhere! It's cold and raining here in the UK so your melting heat seems enviable!

Have a great time with your mermaids! That pool looks wonderful. I can see one of those in my back yard and me just lying in it like a beached whale! Wonderful!

I like that you had a party for the colourful snake. We used to have regular parties for my youngest son's teddy bear. ( It was really just a ploy for yet another cake). Hope you have cooler weather this week. And a good amount of energy.

Lots of ice cream, lots of icy pops, lots of time in water, lots of afternoon naps :) That should help keep the heat at bay. I love resting to a good movie after lots of hot exercise outside. Reading another blog in a cooler clime - highs around 70 and lows around 50 -- I was jealous. And Kezzie talking about needing gloves and sweaters when camping in Europe recently. Does that really count as summer? haha :) Have fun with the grandies this week!

Theater camp reminds me of when my daughter participated in summer plays between the ages of 8 and 15. She fit in a lot of plays, sometimes doing two in a summer. They were silly versions of fairytales and well-known stories like Tom Sawyer. The group that put them on was called Prairie Fire Children's Theater, and they would work on a play for a week and then give two performances. It was so much fun and taught her a lot of confidence. She got the lead role of Pinocchio at the age of 15! Have fun in that pool! It looks like a really great one! :)

Wow so it is really summer on your neck of the woods Karen. I'm so use to seeing your snow photos.
It is winter here in OZ and it started really mild, but looks like it will be snowing in the mountains, a real winter is finally coming.
The girls are having fun in the water. Hope you have a fabulous time in Mexico.

Hugs
