Vacation~

Well, as most of you have heard and seen all over the news the past few days...it is hotter than Haiti here in the big ATL!  They don't call it HOTLANTA for nothin!!  Today's temps 106 baby!  You know it's hot when your sun loving daughter only lasts at the pool for 20 minutes, comes home and says "I can take a bath at home!"  Someone at the club had the bright idea to have all the kiddos that were coming for the Dive In Movie last night to bring a bag of ice each to attempt to cool the pool.  Well, according to one dad who attended...the bags were melted for the most part prior to reaching the pool deck, and once in the water disappeared instantly.  Now if any of you have access to a giant glacier in the arctic...we would be much obliged.

So, what's one to do when the temps rise...well...go on vacation!  I would love to say we are headed to cooler temperatures, but the flights to Alaska are currently booked with everyone trying to escape the heat!!  So instead, the youngest is off to Orlando for a leadership conference and mission trip and we are headed to one of my favorite cities...Charleston, South Carolina.  And, I promise to take LOTS of pictures.

In the meantime, I will leave you with one of my favorite songs...my apologies if you are still hearing it in your sleep.


TRY AND STAY COOL!!!

It's times like this I realize how far we live away from eachother. It's been so cold here I haven't worn shorts even once! I seriously haven't been in shorts since last year!!!
So Sad . . . Today I wore yoga pants, a sweat shirt and a jacket to the plant nursery!!! I think we should meet somewhere in the middle of the US! I can warm up and you can cool down!! ;) Hope you have a great time! I've Always wanted to go to Charleston!!!!
Lots of Love

we are no cooler here- with our combined heat & humidity it feels like 108 and you cant breathe b/c the air is so thick. Have fun in SC!
