“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon;
to me those have always been the two
most beautiful words in the English language.”
–Henry James

Summer hasn’t officially arrived yet, but we are already into our second heatwave of the year. Temperatures during the day are soaring up to 100° F (38 °C). Although it feels more like August than June, I am doing my best to enjoy it. I’d love some more spring-like weather, but I’ll take the heat over the cold any day! As long as we can be outside, I’m happy.

I recently picked up a brand new blow-up pool for just a few cents at a thrift store. This afternoon I blew it up. Unfortunately, I don’t have a hose setup yet so I was hauling large bowls of water from the kitchen to the pool, in order to fill it up. It was quite the task, especially in the heat (!), but it was worthwhile for a couple of hours of splashing around with these cuties.

I rarely turn the camera around on myself (except of course for SnapChat) but I was feeling like Wonder Woman after filling that pool. That called for a selfie. 😉

Another highlight of my week has been that Marina’s hair is finally long enough to fit into a little ponytail. I think it’s just the sweetest little thing ever. And how cute is her little swimsuit. (Similar one here and Roman’s is here.) Oh, and I absolutely love the sunscreen that we use — Active Badger. It was recommended by my sister-in-law last summer, and I swear by it now. It is so effective and lasts so much longer than anything else we’ve tried.
