A raccoon at the park!

We had a storm last night.  It was windy and lightning badly and rain beating down.

But after the storm?

A glorious break from the stifling heat.  It was 72 degrees this morning!  I decided to take the kiddos to the park.  It has been so long since we have been able to go.  The temperatures have been upper 90's to 100's for over a month now.
This was the newspaper just last week....

 We got to the park around 9am and we were the first ones there.  By the time we left at 10:30, there were over 40 moms and children there!  Everyone was ready to get outside and play!

We also met a little creature just like this one at the park...
That's right.  A raccoon.  He actually walked right up to me before scampering off out of the park!

Even by lunchtime it was only 80 degrees today.  So, so nice!

  1. Looking at your temperature digits - I'll never complain about mine ever again. LOL. What do you guys do to stay cool???

  2. We have been staying inside a lot but it has started cooling down a little thankfully!


I always love hearing from you!
