Summer Check In!
Fri, 06-22-2012 - 1:41pm

How is your summer going so far?  Do you have any vacation plans?

We're on the 2nd full week of summer break, and it's been hot and humid just about every single day.  We did get a bit of a reprieve yesterday when we had some much needed rain.  Today, it's back to being like a sauna outside.  I can't take the kids outside at all until the sun goes down in the early evening.  It's just unbearable out there.

We don't have a big vacation planned, but DS will be taking a mini-trip around Lake Michigan with MIL and FIL.  That same weekend, DH has to stand up in a wedding, and I get to stay home with DD.  I'm kind of disappointed because it would have been nice to attend the wedding, but it's an 8 hour car ride and we don't have anyone available to watch the dog or our 4YO.  :smileysad:

Ahh, it's not so bad down here in the Summer!  Just do what us Floridians do, spend it in the pool or in the A/C.  

We did a cruise to Alaska this Summer.  Which did give us a break from our heat.   It was amazing!  It was with Disney, so the kids loved it too.  Though I think DH and I enjoyed the scenery while they enjoyed the ship activities.  I can't believe summer break is almost over (though our heat will last for a few more months.)

I just had a baby (May the 24th) so I spent most of my summer at home. Been to the pool a couple of times but now we go a lot since the baby can handle the hot weather for a few hours now. We are planning on going to Corpus Christi next week but we're looking at the weather and it looks like it's going to be storming for about 4 days in a row :smileysad: I hope things will change so we can go, after that school starts and we won't be able to go anywhere for a long time. I've never thought that summer in central Texas can be this hot. I usually go to Tunisia with my daughter for the whole summer. It's hot there too but not even close to how hot it is here.
