It has been one steamy summer!  I heard on the news the other night that this summer has the potential to be the hottest since 1988.  Much different from last year.  With the addition of grass to our yard now we have been able to enjoy some water activities at home.  Since Nana & Papa's pool has been undergoing some maintenance, we have relied on other means to cool off.



And of course Betsy too

gotta love the slip & slide

7th of July Fireworks

This was our little belated 4th of July fireworks extravaganza.  Although Maari came in at a close second, Betsy was most excited about it!

After the driveway display, Justin took us for a drive in the country to "firework hop."  I was a little skeptical thinking there would be nothing to see...but I was wrong.  Amazing to me that we saw so many and how big they all were.  Betsy got to come along for that too but she definitely prefered our show at home.
