Summer Fun

Summer is finally here! It was beginning to feel like the rain and clouds would never go away but the sun has been out for about 2 weeks now. We have spent a lot of time enjoying the nice weather.

Last weekend we woke up on Sunday morning and checked the weather. It said it was going to be in the 90's. It was 8:00 in the morning and our house was already 80 degrees. We don't have air conditioning and quickly decided it would be perfect to go to Ocean Shores for the day. We packed up the car in about 45 minutes and hit the road. It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive and I can't even tell you how many times we heard "Are we there yet?". As we got closer the temperature began to drop and I quickly realized that I had forgotten to pack a very important thing...sweatshirts. We pulled up to the beach and the temperature was 58 degrees, cloudy and windy. A quick stop at the store to pick up sweatshirts then we were good to go. We spend the day playing in the sand, flying kites and enjoying the water.

The fun hasn't stopped. We have been enjoying a lot of water play this year. We turned our slide into a water slide and have had tons water fights with squirt guns and the hose. We have also spend time playing in Grandma and Grandpa's lake and taking rides in the paddle boat.

Life feels pretty normal around our house right now. We are trying hard to get some big project's done before Timothy is born. Today was fence day. Kevin spent the entire day cleaning and staining our fence. He is awesome. He worked all day in the hot sun only stopping twice. Once to eat lunch and once to eat dinner. He was done just in time to tell the kids goodnight. I am always amazed at his persistence.

That's my kind of play time - with a hose! I swear, Matt's a water-phobe, we need to work on the meantime, maybe I'll come to the Currey home to get my fix! ;-D

What a difference in weather between your house and the ocean! I can see why you didn't pack sweatshirts, I'll have to keep that in mind if we try to go there at all this summer...

Susan Ryan wants to let you know that you're in her thoughts and prayers, she's been reading your blog to stay updated. We're all very thankful that you're doing this! I'm glad you have gotten such great family time in, even in the midst of all your projects! :-)

I LOVE the pictures with the hose. Looks quite refreshing! Congrats on the big fence project. I'm surprised Kevin hasn't enlisted Jimmy's help staining the fence...with all the help Kevin provided building our fence a couple of weeks ago! We owe you!!
