We may be in Kentucky, which is more central (or even Northern) when you look at a map of the USA, but we call it The South for good reason.
First, people here have Southern accents (to the untrained Canadian ear, they almost sound Texan),
Second, Kentucky qualifies for the Bible Belt (hello, church on every corner!),
and Third, IT IS REALLY HOT.
Thankfully, unlike at home in Montreal, where it is equally hot this week, we have air conditioning. It is majorly saving the nights, but in the days, Lily isn't content to just hang out inside (like her lovely little bro). We have a great deck here in our rental, so we've done a bit of this...
does anything remind you of being a kid more than this?
then mama got her act together...
pure summer joy.
Brought to you by a $10 Rite Aid plastic pool, SPF 60 sunscreen, and a portable high chair.
When the kids wake up at 1pm from their naps, we're out on the porch til dinner.
This plastic pool brings me back to my own childhood and has been a lifesaver down here in the South :)
