I hardly know what to do with all the sunny days we've been having. For someone like me who is so affected by the weather, it's like one endless warm fuzzy. In fact yesterday was one of those brutal mid-Atlantic summer days with 99% humidity in the 90s that I so longed for on the cold, wet, purportedly summer days of Aberdeen. As we drove to church and crossed the Walt Whitman Bridge, the city was virtually invisible, enveloped in a blanket of soupy humidity and trapped pollution. That I'm not so fond of, but the warmth and glorious rays I could take ad infinitum.
The first full week we were here I realized how much hot weather we still had left and decided that it would be best to get a wading pool for the boys. After calling around to numerous stores which, under normal circumstances, would have such seasonal fare and striking out repeatedly since stores are now currently stocked with heavy winter jackets and snow boots, my mom and I finally found some at none other than blessed Target. As it is obviously the end of the season, everything was reduced 75%. The boys love splashing around in the pool and emptying it, of course, and I feel like we've finally gotten our summer.
