Beat the Heat

Oklahoma summers are pretty miserable. And this summer seems to be WAY hotter than last summer!! And keep in mind I was 9 months pregnant and 40 pounds heavier last summer. Maybe our air conditioning was better or I was just downing the flavor ice more frequently. The heat plus mosquito infestation in our backyard has rendered our inflatable pool useless so we have had to find other ways to cool down.

We have been taking advantage of any pools offered to us and yesterday we spent some time with friends at the pool of a lady from church.
Of course it was the first day it has rained in a LONG time but we still had fun chatting on the patio.
When all else fails sometime you just have to get neked to beat the heat.
No one knows this better than our good pal Ben. He streaked up and down his driveway at LEAST 100 times back and forth running full speed. I'm sure he was just trying to catch a breeze.

Liv and Des just watched him in amazement.
Their moms stayed cool by the fan in the garage.

And when you just can't take it anymore, you just have to be a hermit and hang out indoors. But the indoors are always better with lots of friends!

Wasn't that concrete hot on Olivias hands and Bens feet? I got blisters walking barefoot on a sidewalk once upon a time. I must say "OW"! Glad you're finding ways to stay cool, or relatively so anyway. Its only supposed to get to 74 here in Newberg tomorrow. Wish you were here. Love ya, Mom aka Gma
