Beat the Heat

What do you do when your state is breaking records for heat that have been set since the 1880's?  HIT THE POOL!  The big boys get home from school around 4, and Levi helped me make tin foil dinners.  We used some of the veggies we got the previous day from the Farmer's Market.  It was delish.  At 6, we were full and ready to swim.
The short ride to Great Grandmama's house was filled with the boys singing to Our Song, and  See You Again.  Yeah, they will be embarrassed by this shortly, lol.  
The water?  Oh, thanks for asking.  It was just what the doctor ordered.  Talk about refreshing.  I mean, I tried to sit in the shade earlier in the afternoon and had sweat dripping down my back. It was THAT HOT and stale.
Don't be fooled by the peacefulness of the pictures.  There was allot of splashing, and running around, and hollering.  But isn't that what boys do?
How about this?  We had to time this just so.  Because I haven't read the manual for my camera and can't set it for an action shot.  It took three tries to get this and not a splash.  
Stay cool!

Happy Birthday to my brother Shaun!!!!
