The summer is flying by! The kids are home and we are busy having fun!
This was the 4th of July here in Vegas. It had been 68 days straight without rain and barely a cloud. And, it had been HOT.
It was late afternoon and it started sprinkling. The neighborhood girls came knocking and we all went out and played in the rain. We made boats with plastic lids and raced them down the rain trail. The kids splashed around and had the time of their lives in that nasty, dirty Vegas rain water. I was proud of my sometimes uptight self for just letting them play and get gross. They played for about 90 minutes and we through them in the bath. Sadly those cute home made fireworks t-shirts we made that they wore had to be trashed…ahhh but we have great pictures to remember it all.
That is what summer and childhood should be all about…friends and great memories.
