Hot, Hot, Hot!

We hit the 90s this weekend.  Ugh...I thought we might have another month before that happened.  Fortunately, we didn't let the heat ruin our fun.  We headed out to my grandmother's house again on Saturday morning.  My brother's family was there for my nephew's 3rd birthday.  

The older 3 kids love visiting out at Granny's house because not only are they likely consume some variety of food not generally on mom's menu, but they get to traipse in the woods until their hearts are content.

Of course, their real desire lies at the creek, which can be deep and swift-moving in certain parts so adults are required, but the adults try to accomodate occasionally.

The little guys are just as happy to play with balls in the driveway.

We found lizards and caterpillars.

And celebrated Aidan's 3rd year!

Then it was off to Paulie's baseball game where we sweltered on the top of the hill.

But Sunday brought relief by way of the sprinkler...

Finn was a little freaked out by the sprinkler so he found some relief in a bucket of water.

Spring, come back soon!!


  1. Lucky you! We were wishing for my grandmother's and her creek this weekend... looks like fun!

  2. That looks like you guys had a blast! We went out to my dad's who has a river and creek, but I didn't get pictures of the boys playing in the river. Their definition of "playing" is more using the tractor to dig out pretty rocks. I guess it's true that boys never grow up, just get bigger toys. ;)

  3. Oh, that looks like it was fun all around even if the temps were high. Especially the creek!!! Did you put the caterpillar in a jar with food and a stick to watch it turn into a butterfly?

  4. 90s already!? What a great weekend they all had! Lucky kids to have a granny with woods. Oh and the call of a creek in hot weather...what fun.

  5. I can't even imagine 90 degrees right now! We are lucky if it hits 60. Fun pictures!

  6. Ugg is right! Looks like you handled the heat alright, though. I know its coming our way. I just hope it takes awhile ;)

  7. I can't believe your lovely weather! We had snow, rain, and hail this weekend!

    It looks like a lovely weekend.

  8. that is really hot! It's great you got to put your feet in the creek and go through some sprinkler to cool down. Definitely needed.

  9. We hit the 90s too...I committed to being outside was good.

  10. What an adorable set of pictures! I love it when it the temps reach the 90s. :) Grandma's house looks like a fun place to visit.

  11. Summer has been visiting us too! I'm o.k with it for a day or two but I much prefer the 60's. That creek looks like a lot of fun-a great place to be on a hot day!

  12. Oh, I wish we could have temperatures like that soon... Right now we are having 6 C..

    Happy Birthday to Aidan! Tha cake looks great :)


I love to hear what you think!
