It's icky sticky and hot.  Even at 6am, just laying on the ground doing crunches I have sweat dripping off me.  It's quite gross.

So it seems like the perfect time to cool off in the pool or the sprinkler.  Yeah, well, our pool seems to be a mosquito larvae haven, and after a few days the water just gets nasty anyway.  That will teach me to buy a kiddie pool that is big enough to need a filter.  Peanut loves the big pool, Pumpkin does not.  And we don't have a neighborhood pool, so going in the "big pool" means inviting ourselves over to someones house.  The sprinkler is another story - Pumpkin is completely distressed about the sprinkler and won't go near it even when we are just watering the garden.  Peanut likes the sprinkler, but is pretty choosy.  She is at camp this week, and the kids were running through the sprinkler when I got there to pick her up.  Well, all the kids aside from her that is.  She told me that she "that sprinkler was different and I only like our sprinkler".  So she was pretty hot when I got her in the car.  She decided to ride home naked, and then climb a tree.  Funny way to beat the heat!

I hope you are not implying that you would ever hesitate to invite yourself over to our house to use the pool. You know you can come anytime!! :)
