Summer Arrives

I guess Summer was just holding off for its solstice or something since the past few weeks have been lovely, moderate weather and today it shot into the upper 80’s and low 90’s. With the humidity above 60% it’s pretty cloying. Out comes the sprinkler and the wading pool. With a 5 year old who doesn’t want to wait for everything to fill up the sprinkler was setup first.

Equipped with goggles he was more bold but it was still COLD COLD COLD as you can see in the video below. Eventually we went to the fish pond and I let him wade in there with me nearby. We waded, harassed frogs, I had fish nibbling my toes, and we even found a tiny tadpole (toad) with legs. Mommy weeded. I tried to get Zane to sit still long enough for the fish to nibble him, but that was impossible.
