Heat Wave

Summer decided not to arrive here in the Portland area until about 2 days after the 4th of July- typical!

But, when it did, it came on strong... bringing 90+ degree temps! To beat the heat, we pulled out the Finding Nemo "Splash Pad", and let the kids cool off.

Riley jumped right in... giggling and running through the water- it was so cute! Tyson took a little longer to warm up to the idea, but eventually he came around. Cooper enjoyed running up to the edge, feeling the water, then running away laughing. :)

Pure joy on her face- I love it! :)

Tyson, hanging back a bit...

Then working his way in...

Wet and smiling!

Love this face!

Testing the waters...

I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon!

I was in Kennewick during the heatwave (of all places) 107 on one day!

Sorry I haven't been commenting. I've been reading though. I really like what you guys did with your yard. I love your new house! All of the decorating is really pretty.

Also, congratulations for graduating! That is so awesome. :) A huge example for your kids to follow(and me)

Would have been great to have you and your splash pad (I've never seen that!) at our Splish Splash party last Friday... =)
