soaking up the last bits of summer

It seems that Iowa is confused. When we moved here in June, the weather was in the 60s. Now it's September and we're approaching triple digits? 

Kate and I have decided to embrace the heat, purchase a blow up pool (that was on clearance so late in the season - woot!), and splash ourselves silly in the back yard. 

Sometimes we invite friends to splash with and they bring yummy watermelon. It's a win-win. 

Entertaining ourselves with the fancy children's dinnerware from IKEA, we stack, pour, dunk, sip, and plop until the sun goes down - or until it's time for Kate's nap, whichever comes first. 

I'd say it's a pretty pleasant way to enjoy the last bits of summer. 

 (Also, so far no problems with the actual wearing of the clothes. That suit is too cute on her squishy little body to remember the bad!)
