With a forecasted high of nearly 90 degrees today, we decided that a morning at our local spray ground fit the bill. I’m not sure if spray grounds are unique to Florida or not, but they are the best thing ever for little kiddos on a hot day.
What’s the weather like where you are this weekend? What are your plans?
My mom and I took the girls to our local spray park this morning. It is a perfect place for small children, and a great way to beat the Florida heat! Today was Maggie’s first trip there, and she had a ball. This little girl is fearless, and got right in the thick of things. I’m sure we’ll make many trips there this summer, when our heat index reaches 100.
This afternoon I stripped the girls down to their birthday suits, filled up their pink elephant pool, slathered them with sunscreen, and headed out into the 90 degree Florida heat.
The girls enjoyed tangerine frozen fruit pops, splashing in the pool, and chasing lizards.
I love that relaxed summer time feeling. Flip flops, rays of sunshine, and afternoon naps. After a very busy start to our year, I now look forward to a slower pace with a Bob Marley soundtrack, new freckles on my face, and lazy days spent on the beach. There is nothing like summer in Florida, and I am so glad that my girls will be growing up spending their summers exactly where I did.
We experienced record highs in my part of Florida this past weekend. The temperature reached 90 degrees! So what else could we do but go swimming?! My girls LOVE the water, and I’m excited they start swim lessons next week.
We cooked steaks out on the grill, floated around the pool, and Beau and I enjoyed a margarita or two. It was a lovely weekend with no plans. We all took naps, and watched movies. We really enjoyed watching The Fighter last night, it was fantastic!
I hope it’s warm in your part of the world, and you are enjoying some beautiful weather, too!
Amelia has one of these life jacket/flotation devices, and she loves it! We put in on her, and she can float around the pool on her own. It is also a more comfortable alternative to a traditional life vest for when we go boating.

Took Amelia boating today for the first time on my sister’s boat. It was a beautiful warm day, and we got to swim, and play on an island. Living in Florida is not half bad.
