Holy Crap, it's HOT

Greetings from vacation. Not to start off a vacation post with complaints, but..... Well, the title pretty much says it all. I come to this house the same week (roughly) every year. The first time we came, we needed coats every day and had the fireplaces roaring at night. Last year was ideal....70's in the day, 50's at night. This year....record heatwaves. We arrived Friday night after a rainy, chilly drive. We actually had to turn on the heat at night. But the next day.....high 90's. The following day, we went to the amusement park and when we got back in the car afterwards, my outside temp indicator said 102! 102!!!!!!! Boy did I feel bad for the people working at the park dressed in heavy costumes. Did I mention this house has no air conditioning?? Which is normally a non-issue this time of year. It's not supposed to break til Thurs and we leave Friday morning. *Sigh* Oh well.

Enough of the complaining.....we are having a wonderful time. My BFF "J" came with me on Friday and I sent her home on the train this AM so she could get back to work. We went to the beach, boardwalk, mini-golf and drive in movie on Saturday. Yesterday was the amusement park. Today we did some shopping and spent some time at the beach again. Tomorrow, we're doing a lake cruise and probably mini-golf again since DD loved it so much! She totally missed the "rules" of the game and was having the BEST time just throwing everyones balls around and dropping them into the holes proclaiming "Mommy, I helped you WIN!" Too cute! The nights have been just gorgeous to sit outside and listen to the various sounds of the woods and the lake. Really peaceful.

Guess the bright side of the weather is that I don't much feel like eating! It's just too hot. Except of course when we're out for ice cream and iced Starbucks! :o)

Sounds like a blast! My DD found mini-golf last weekend too. We'll have to compare pictures. Remember to take lots of pictures. I'm living vicariously through you.

Have fun and stay cool. bet the water feels GREAT.
