Obscure movie quote: “Seattle? It rains nine months a year in Seattle.”
Not today! Not yesterday. Tomorrow? Showers are likely. Sigh. What’s a girl to do in the pacific Northwest on a sunny day but head out in the sun. I have a wonderful friend who generously opens up her home on the lake. Hearing it was going to be warm today, she kindly invited several families over for a swim. The begging, bribing, and pleading worked and we managed to score an invitation as well.
The kids swam, ate snacks, swam, devoured more snacks, and swam some more. Swim, eat, dunk repeat.
The sunshine and fellowship time was just what I needed.
The children gathered around a big bowl of grapes and a platter of watermelon.
After the fruit and another swim, the kids moved on to a ‘sweeter’ treat. Michelle brought out a large box of fudgesicles and chocolate covered ice cream cones. How to choose??
I’ll take one of each, please!
Joshua had to rough it for a good part of the visit as the only boy over the age of 10. Finally another friend came by and Joshua was pulled out of his reverie (and into the water – those boys are fierce).
It’s hard to be the oldest boy among a crowd of youngsters.
Thank you, Nancy!! For the wonderful visit under the bright blue sky. Just what I needed.
