I’m not a big fan of the heat. My favorite season is the Fall, followed by Spring and Winter, with Summer coming in dead last. New Jersey is known for its crazy humidity, but this summer has been uncharacteristically bearable … until now. The heat and humidity has been so bad the past few days that today, when talking with a friend who grew up in Mumbai, India, she characterized our weather, particularly the humidity, as worse than it is in India. Yikes! I take consolation in the fact that Summer is nearly over, and regularly sing the praises of the person who invented the air conditioner. What a genius that was!
Lately, in an effort to beat the heat and stay cool, the kids have been dragging out the wading pool and having fun splashing about. It’s all about the simple things, and a pool full of water, bunched up beach towels, flip-flops and icy cold colorful popsicles make for awesome summer memories. Lately, though, we’ve added a little shaving cream to the mix. Tag this under “perhaps the most amount of fun you can have for a buck.”
Taking a queue from Meg, I set a few cans of shaving cream out and let the kids go to town. I think the pictures say it all.
