Despite grueling temps into the high 90s
(Did someone say low 100s?),
We managed to have a blast!
We feasted on
Hawaiian BBQ chicken,
and an assortment of fresh fruits and veggies . . .
Along with the lightest, fluffiest
"Touch of Grace" biscuits I have ever tasted!
My adaptation to 100% whole wheat succeeded,
Meriting the 475-degree oven use in this heat.
(Crazy, I know! But YUMMY!!
I'll share the recipe soon.)
Nothing cries "Summertime" like
Berries, Berries, Berries!
We paused briefly to digest the feast
Before making our way out to the pool
Just as twilight descended
(too hot before the sun relaxed).
No hesitation as everyone plunged into the sparkling water.
Okay . . .
I hesitated just a smidge on the steps
before joining the "cool" crowd.
Not only cool, but talented.
(Look out Rockettes . . .
The Bubble-ettes have arrived!)
Some were so cool that they opted for the spa right off.
Then Mom showed up . . .
(Note the smile -- whew!)
Soaking it all in . . .
So much fun fills the memory banks . . .
So many bloggy thoughts to share . . .
SO MUCH material to work with . . .
How did you beat the heat and find your smile this past weekend?
