Hot, Hot, Hot!
Our Fourth of July holiday was fun. And HOT. 101 degrees of heat and humidity. It’s 87 degrees this morning. Yes, it’s 6:50 a.m. I’m melting just sitting here.
I took the kids to Sunset Lake to go swimming yesterday. What else is there to do on day like that? Not much. We skipped the annual Independence Day parade in Stevens Point because of the heat index warnings for our area. I couldn’t bear the though of lugging two kids, a cooler full of water and lawn chairs to sit in the sun for an hour with a hundred other crazy people. So beach day it was.
My dad came along with us and the boys built sand castles with him. Owen was by Poppa’s side the entire day and wherever my dad went, Owen followed.
The water was super warm, which is surprising because Sunset is a spring-fed lake. These bodies of water are typically colder than average. I’m thinking that 101 degrees warmed it up just fine.
After working up an appetite swimming we grabbed a few pizzas on the way home and had dinner with my mom and dad at their house. We got home at 7:30 and the heat was still pretty irritating. I had to go sleep in the basement just to stay cool. I’m really thinking we need central air.
How was your Fourth? What did you do?
