Today we enjoyed our last summer day as a family. Nate reports back to work tomorrow. Today was a scorcher, so we decided to be away from the house as much as possible. We went and ate at Little Caesars and then cruised around town checking out twin mattresses. Julius is still in a toddler bed, but we feel he is no longer getting the quality sleep he needs because the bed is too small for him. Holy cow, mattresses are ridiculous! We looked at several stores and just priced things out. We'll save the spending lots of money for another day, lol!
Then this evening we packed up dinner and headed to the beach. We actually had to pay to get into the park because when we traded in our old van, we forgot to peel off the state park pass. Bummer. The lake was nice and cool. We enjoyed real turkey sandwiches, just like after Thanksgiving dinner, along with cucumbers, strawberries and lemonade. Thanks Mom for dropping off the fixings! It made the perfect beach dinner!
The lake helped us cool off enough that we could come home and face our hot house. I am looking forward to some cool, crisp air in the weeks ahead. And I really miss soup. I am ready for some good soups and chili. Hope you all are drinking up these last days of summer, too!
