Summer

Usually I'm not a huge fan of summer.  It gets hot in Sacramento.  But this year, except for a one week 110 degree heat wave, we have had a fantastic summer.  Warm days and cool nights I can deal with. 

Madison made a summer list and we've only gotten about a quarter of the way through.  With only three more weeks of summer, I don't think we are going to be able to finish up the list. 

But, we did make it through three sessions of swimming lessons.  We started the first session in cold, rainy weather.  Definitely not something we're used to in the summer.

 
We used the indoor pool for the first time.
 
 
Sidney had her first official lesson and Madison made huge improvements this year.  She went from not even wanting to get her face wet, to jumping into the deep end and swimming back to the wall.

 
We went to an engagement party about an hour and a half away from home (during the 110 degree heat wave) and had major car drama.  Our car died while driving down the freeway.  Luckily we were pretty close to an exit and we were able to get a tow truck to take it to a repair shop.  Unfortunately, the repair shop kept our car for a week and a half and we had to get a rental car. 
 
 
We had a fun Fourth of July watching fireworks and parades.
 


 
And hung out with cousins we don't get to see very often.

  1. A car staying at the garage looks bad. What was wrong with it? When where you guys able to get it running again? Maybe the heat wave had something to do with it. You'd never know with cars: they overheat in the summer and don't start in the winter.
