Last week I was so excited at the prospect of finally getting to some hot, sunny weather. I had visions of swimming dancing through my head. The minute the weather got over 80 degrees I packed up the kids to go swimming at our favorite inland lake.
Unfortunately, when we got there the weather took a bit of a turn. The sun decided to hide behind thick, ominous looking clouds for the rest of the day and the wind picked up to a good 25 mph creating some serious waves on the chilly water.
Apparently, my kids were not deterred. They jumped in the water and played for hours while I sat wrapped in a blanket on the shore. Crazy kids. I did try to join them in the water for a little while but I couldn't get in over my knees. I needed hotter weather.
This weekend we got the hotter weather. It was 85 and sunny. Perfect!
The week is supposed to be more of the same. Hot, hot, hot! I'll take it! Hopefully we can work another swimming day (or two) in this week. There is no better way to spend a hot summer day. I'm loving it!
