I truly believe Fall has arrived. The nights are very chilly (50 degrees) and the days are in the 70's. We really didn't have a summer, so Fall is welcome for a change.
The kids were a little stir crazy the other day so I took them outside to play. They immediately started in on me to put up the slip n slide. Are you crazy?! It wasn't that warm, but there comes a time as a Mother when you just don't care. Let them have their fun! I don't remember being that cold when I was young and summers didn't get as warm as they do here. So out went the Slip n Slide. They had fun for about 40 minutes and then the lips got a little blue, so we packed it in.
By the way, the kids get their fair skin from me. After a summer outside they still look white.
The end of Summer....sigh....skinned elbows and knees. (did you notice Ryan's elbow?)
