*hot*hot*hot*

Well, I guess it is summer here now that it is 90 FREAKIN' DEGREES out! I took the girls to Ledges State Park to cool off in the creek this weekend. We actually went Sat and Sun. Sunday we brought Emma's friend Espie, which was fun for the girls. Here is a picture of them all jumping off a rock at the same time.
And splash! You might notice that the rock they jumped off recently fell off the canyon wall behind it. I thought that was kind of cool.
After we got home from the park Annie wanted to play with the ice in the cooler, so I dragged it out back for her. I got her a pitcher of warm water and she started doing "experiments. She was putting ice cubes in the warm water to see how they melted, and to see how many ice cubes it would take to turn the warm water cold. She also put ice on the sidewalk to see how long it would take to melt, and eventually how long it took for the water left behind to dry up.
She was entertained for over an hour with her "experiments"! I guess anything that involves ice and water on a hot day would be a hit.

We walked over to the hawaiian shave ice shack after dinner for some treats. I got a strawberry colada and it was delicious. Kind of like a sugar rush and a brain freeze at the same time!


Emma is starting to feel the effects of the brain freeze, and Annie is just trying to get the last bits of her ice.
Predictably, the girls got stomach aches on the walk home. But it was ok. I got a punch card as I bet we will be frequent customers of the shave ice shack this summer.
Did I mention it's freaking hot outside?

Hi Lisa. I don't think I have commented before, but I read your blog fairly often. You are so hard on yourself, but posts like this make it so obvious that you are a great mama! Look at how happy your girls are! I just found out I am pregnant, and if I can be half as good at being a mom as you are, I will be thrilled!

So jealous of your heat. In provo it snowed last night. Snow??? It's almost June!

Your girls are going to have so many wonderful memories. I know you're having a hard time, but you still manage to do so many wonderful things with your kids...even the simple things that you think of...the smiles on their faces are just priceless :)
