August in June...

Doug about to hit D with a water balloon!

Delaney launching a water balloon at me

Hadley before she launched her balloon at me (what's the deal?)

Splash Park in Roswell

After ALL that play, the girls retire to do a little sunbathing

What's good on a hot day? SpongeBob Squarepants ice cream!

We're into our second full week here of summer break. So far it's a toss up as to how good it's been. The start of it with our family get-a-way to Tennessee was brought to a halt thanks to Delaney's farewell present from Kindergarten...strep throat! Less than 5 days later, Hadley (who didn't want to be outdone) came down with croup. So after swabbing the house with Lysol wipes and lecturing Hadley about licking the shopping cart at Publix, we're hoping to bring all the sickness to a bitter end.

Temperatures here lately have been in the upper 90's which is actually pretty hot for this time of year. We usually see this weather by the end of July, beginning of August. I can't remember the last time it rained. The sky clouded up last night and all the kids' inflatable pool stuff that was on the back porch was flying around in the yard as if a tornado was about to touch down. All bark, no bite. Not a single drop of rain to be had. So with weather like this we have mainly been either indoors or in water. Mostly in water. We've done the lake, the pool and today we ventured over to Splash Park in Roswell to play in the fountains. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves in the water and I enjoyed sitting under the huge canopy in the shade watching all the kids who were with their nannies acting downright brat-crazy. Of course when we were done we just had to hit up the ice cream stand and purchase SpongeBob Squarepants ice cream bars for $3 a pop. Hadley licked a few spots and went right for the gum ball eyes and declared herself done. For $3, I told her I would finish it even if she is a walking germ. Nonetheless, sick or not, this family is having a great summer thus far.
