Big sigh… the weather has finally turned. Memorial Day weekend always marks the unofficial start of summer. The temps hit the low 80’s, the public pools and spray parks open and we don shorts and tank tops in celebration. Today was the first day it was warm enough to dip our toes into the frigid water of the creek that runs down the mountain. I wasn’t sure how my two year old daughter would do. She loves water but this water is COLD. She absolutely loved it. While big brother marched up and down the creek selecting different size rocks to listen for the different “plunk” each would make in the water my daughter alternated between shrieking with delight and shrieking with shock when the water splashed onto her legs. It was a fantastic trip to the park. We came home sweaty and muddy and wet. And I’ll be darned if the peanut butter and fluff sandwiches didn’t taste that much sweeter.
