Swimmingly I hope.
We have been busy, although it doesn't seem like we stray very far from home and we are always exhausted by the time we get back, even if it's just to play in the back yard. The heat will do that to ya, ya know.
We have had play dates with friends, both old and new.
Found a new park in the middle of suburbia, with a pool and a little bit of wilderness.
Saw some cactus in bloom and identified some wildflowers, had a blast throwing rocks into the raging river and dipped our toes into an ice cold stream. I had never really noticed how delicate and papery thin the flowers are on a cacti.
Had fun making "dinosaur skeletons" out of rocks and twigs.
Went to the zoo and saw some "real" dinosaurs and bones.
Rescued a gopher from the window well. I think the time to put covers on the window wells is long past. We have now rescued no fewer than three critters from its depths, a snake, a gopher and a baby skunk!
Fed some ducks, chased a chicken, "drove" a tractor.
We have even taken the time to stop and smell the roses.
And welcomed the rest that comes at the end of the day.
So, what have you been doing all summer?
