This week....Cruel Summer

"Hot summer streets and the pavements are burning...I sit around...
Trying to smile but the air is so heavy and dry (more like sticky and yuck!)....It's a cruel...cruel...cruel summer..."
-Bananarama (Cruel Summer)
Here is what we've been doing to stay out of the hot, needs to we've been having.
 Making mazes for Leo the amazing hamster!
Um..yeah, I don't think Houdini. Get back inside those walls!
 Growing snow...too bad it's not the real stuff!
 Enjoying tomatoes straight from our veggie garden...yum!
The old Slip-n-slide!

Other heatwave breakers...a trip to the pool...$1 movie...making ice cream in a bag...splashing in the creek....watching Scooby Doo...playing Hyper Dash....and annoying our sister or brother...or mother...watching the plumber saw open the pipe....a week later watching the plumber install a new water heater....poking our sister....yelling "Moooom!!!!" a few dozen times before realizing I'm not answering to that anymore....reading...writing...crafts...enjoying being home....realizing the Back to School signs are up in the stores (I think that had the kids a little concerned at Target today...hahaha).
So, how are you all spending your summer?
Thanks for stopping by the Jafa House! 
God Bless!

Glad you all are having a great summer! Leo sure is cute. I took the kids to the waterpark on Wed. with a couple of their friends, then out for frozen yogurt. Today I am taking Matt and 3 of his friends to see HP on IMAX in 3D! Can't wait!

Ha Ha HA about the signs at Target. My kids saw a commercial about Kmart's back to school shopping and they were like, 'Is that a mistake?' Poor babies. Why oh why does it come so quickly : (
LOVE your pictures!
