Pictures from our visit to Grandma and Grandpa's

At the end of July Seattle was hit with a crazy, mind-numbing heat wave. We had a record high, I think it got up to 104 degrees that week. The girls and I decided to get the heck out of town that day, making a drive over the mountains to central WA to stay with my in-laws, the girl's grandparents. It was no cooler outside but at least they had air conditioning!

Grandpa taught the girls how to make a fun dessert. They were so proud and brought a tray of their graham cracker goodies around for everyone to eat.

In the city where my in-laws live is a soda fountain. It was really fun to get a treat there, too bad the prices also weren't a throw-back to the fifties, as well!

After our treats at the soda fountain it was time for a roll down the hill . . .

Then a run through the sprinklers . . .

My biggest pet peeve about this city is how much they water their lawns. It's a freakin' desert and everyone waters and waters like crazy! At least it makes for some fun play time!

Grandma and Grandpa have a great little pool in their back yard along with a slide that we can set to run right in to it. Eloise played a TON in this pool while we were there!
