last weekend

Wow, last weekend was hot and it was a challenge to be outside on Sunday afternoon. Charlie and his siblings were throwing a 40th anniversary BBQ for their parents, but only a few of us were brave enough to actually eat outside.

We clustered up in the shade, had fans going and wear in as few layers of clothes as possible.

The kids wanted ice cream cones, and they came outside to eat with us, but the ice cream was melting so fast and they didn't know where to lick. It was all over their hands and then Cheyenne bit the bottom off her cone and she had it dripping from both top and bottom. Eventually, she stuck a finger up the bottom to stop the dripping. LOL.

The heat drove us all back inside pretty quickly, but a fun time was had by all.

Happy 40th anniversary, Tim and Judy!

My son always bites the bottom and sides of his cone first. Must be a kid thing.

I am such a baby about the heat! Thank God for shade and ice cream!

Glad you had a good time! The ice cream stories are so cute.
For my grandma's birthday in July, we had massive heat too, but no one braved the outdoors for that. 35 people in her living room. :)

How are you doing these days my dear? Thinking about you. Your title to your last post really got my hopes up for you.
