Well, we are back from vacation. And I have never been more happy to see my bathtub in all my life. And my air conditioner. And my washing machine for that matter. We’ve spent the past few days in a post vacation haze, lots of staring and milling around and sleeping late and doing nothing. I love summer. Really, I do. I love the heat and the swimming and the traveling and the lazy days, but I always know I’m about ready to wrap it up when the temperature reaches a point where you swear you see satan putting on sunscreen or I catch my children standing in front of the open fridge not to get food, but to cool off. When I’m okay with my husband’s arctic 68 degrees thermostat setting, I’m done. We had a great vacation to our family’s ranch and to the (dry) Frio River, but I could have done without the 120degree heat. you laugh? that was the heat index in the parking lot. The fact that there was no hot water did not bother me in the slightest.
Anyhooo, now that I am but I did want to share some of the fun things that we have done this summer. While we have not crossed everything off of our summer bucket list, we have had a great summer!
Here’s what we’ve done so far…..
