Is this July?

I can't believe this heat! It's not even officially summer yet, and at 90+ degrees, it already feels like July. We went to West Virginia to visit Nolan's family for the weekend. Thankfully, there is a local pool there that the girls (and we) could go to cool off. Why is it that we didn't mind the heat when we were kids... and it doesn't bother our own kids... yet it is so miserable for us as adults? (Well, at least for me.)

I took the lens cap off my camera to take a picture of not one, but two, hula hoops stuck up in the tree in Nolan's parents' backyard, and my lens immediately steamed up. Leila first got the pink one stuck. Nolan then tried to use the white one to knock the pink one out and it got stuck, too. :-)

What's a trip to WV without a good roll down a hill?

We arrived home this evening to more sweltering heat. Since we didn't feel like packing up again to leave and go to the pool, we just turned on the irrigation system. :-)
