Cooling Off

It has been hot here.  Even I am wearing shorts.  That doesn't happen very often.  I'm more of a I'd-rather-not-show-off-my-pasty-white-legs-if-I-don't-have-to-and-wear-capri's kind of gal.  So yes, it is hot here

On Monday night, DH and I were deciding what to do on his day off as a way to cool off.  We both wanted to do something fun but didn't know what.  They have a water park here locally (like a free park with some water toys kind of park, not a big, pay $20 a person kind of water park) and we tossed that idea around.  But get this, I was totally okay with it and DH was the one creeped out by all the potential children and their germs.  So that didn't fly.  We talked about driving up to the lake that's about an hours drive away, but then we nixed that idea because it has been really, really hot here (have I mentioned that yet?) and we knew we wouldn't stay all day and didn't think the gas drive was worth it for an hour or two's worth of fun.  Plus, keeping Peanut on a schedule is always a good thing, so if we stayed in town, we could keep her on her schedule.  

So I decided to get up early yesterday and find a little pool for Peanut. Went to WalMart and of course they were sold out.  Home Depot doesn't carry pools.  (I was right there, so I thought I'd try just in case...)  Third time's a charm though, and I found the cutest little pool, complete with little butterfly toys. 

DH had it all set up and waiting for Peanut once she was done with her nap.  No fear for this girl~

It was a little cold for her at first, but it took her no time at all to figure out she loved fimming {swimming}. 

Even though we don't get to enjoy my parents house this time of year...I am glad at least that she will be able to wear her collection of suits.  Because they are pretty darn cute. 

She had tons of fun, complete with pruney fingers and toes...and as you can imagine, she wasn't thrilled about being done~

Then tonight, we got an extra treat with this heat.  Thunderstorms and torrential downpours.  I haven't seen rain like this since we moved.  Yes, that much.  And I can't remember, have I mentioned it's hot here?  It was about 95 degrees and pouring outside.  Nothing like the humidity skyrocketing to 200 % to finish of the night off right. 

The Peanut didn't like the thunder too much.  She had a concerned look on her face despite my trying to reassure her, and she kept asking me, "Loud? Loud?"  Luckily though, it quieted down by bedtime, as she is now fast asleep. 

Like I should be right now...

Peanut has the right idea playing in the pool! She's such a button. I can almost hear her laughing!
Oh, and pasty white legs? I think there are many members of that club! Me, I own neither shorts nor capris. If push comes to shove, I'll wear a skirt to keep cool. I don't even have a bathing suit. So, yeah, you aren't the only one with pasty-leg phobia, LOL!
