While the rest of the country is experiencing some really hot days, I can't help but feel a little cheated that Mila's first summer is being spent in this microclimate of northern California which is still. cold. We've gone to two lakes in the last two weeks and have only managed to get up to our belly buttons. The pool is hit or miss because it's so windy out (and they say it's heated but I beg to differ). Forget about the beach. I'm just grateful we took advantage of the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean when we were in Florida last month. Give me that sticky humidity any day, I'll know I'm home when the hairs on the back of my neck are matted down again.
