Now This is the Life ....

Now, there is no doubt in my mind that I am a sun goddess. Not in the sense that I must worship it every time it comes out by squeezing myself into a bathing suit, but I absolutely must be outside basking in it's warmth when it is out. My son apparently got this gene as well for the past few days, we have been outside probably 18 out of the 24 hours in a day. We have gone on park hunts, duck feeds, splashed in the wading pool, run through the sprinkler, bug adventures and finishing our landscaping project. Then there is the plethora of activities that he is insistent on playing such as hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer, golf and the good ol game of tag. He is a busy little boy but at least a happy little boy when he can burn off all of that energy outside in the beautiful summer sun.

My daughter on the other hand, is showing signs of not appreciating the warmth. I am hoping that this is just a baby thing and that things will get easier once I can cover her in sunscreen and bring her into all of the action. I must say though, that she did not appreciate my attempts yesterday of cooling her off by running through the sprinkler with her. Somehow those big fat cool drops of water pissed her off ......

With yesterday's temperature hitting 27 C, pulling out the Nemo sprinkler was a must ... and a hit!!

One of the few moments that this anti warm weather to be goddess was smiling.
