It's like a heat wave.....

We have had a few days of unusally hot weather for this time of year. The underzealous weathermen were completely wrong however about their Saturday prediction of it going down by 10 degrees to a more comfortable 80-85. So I was not quite prepared to be tortured at the Saturday Market yesterday . It reached a high of 95 in the shade. I know this because my reserved booth space is across the street from the time and temperature sign . It was brutal but luckily the crazy customers did a lot of shopping. So it was at least worth it to sweat like a pig and sit in a coma all day long.
We knew the heat was coming so I made the wise and exciting purchase of this silly rainbow double kiddie pool with slide (that I daydreamed about all day yesterday). Luckily my tool nut husband had the electric airpump to get that sucker blown up easily. The kids have been having lots of fun but I thought I'd share some golden moments of them fighting at the end of the day :

Henry gets in a good wack.

But don't worry Max got in a few good shots too! They were both crying and screaming hysterically while Nick and I watched as they worked it out.

And here they are back to playing peacefully side by side, their shiny black heads burning in the sun. I didn't fully realize that Legos can float and the potantial for kiddie pool fun that entails.

This is my new friend "The Lounge Chair". I intend to spend a lot of time with him.

I bought two and Max is enjoying lounging with his popsicle. Luckily they clean up easily. (Both chairs and kids.)

On a cooler day Max was enjoying the new used Bubble Mower we got for $1 at the thrift store.

Max really got into painting his favorite toy, the blue beatle. Sadly he is lost right now and we cannot find him anywhere.

The rhododendron I planted about 10 years ago i9n front of our house has finally bloomed for the first time ever. It's a boring pale white but I'm still happy to see it. I have done nothing to take care of it so I don't blame it for not blooming sooner.

The wild purple iris' are popping up all over our property now.
