It is so very hot here in this last stretch of summer (111 degrees today!), but if we can get out early enough and be back before 10, we like to walk to the park down the street from us.
Jamie and I camp out on a blanket in the shade of a few trees
her contemplating the branches and birds and clouds
me on bug-smooshing duty
and Tyler runs around until he gets too hot,
and then he sits and plays with his buckets.
Then we hurry home, melting all the way, and spend the rest of the morning huddled around the AC vents, drinking ice water and generally moving as little as possible. I think it's worth it :)
