Summer finally arrived this weekend. That's not to say we haven't had any beautiful warm weather days or even a few hot ones so far. But this past weekend the heat and humidity arrived in tandem and a Midwest Summer was here in full force.
Pete and I staked out our seats for the Three Rivers Festival parade Saturday morning in the shade of a tall downtown building and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Mike had worked the overnight shift on Friday night so he was home sleeping in.
Sunday we checked out the Chalk Walk, Junk Food Alley and the Egg Drop at Science Central. We got our annual family picture done with Domino and Shuba at Picture Your Pet. Busy day.
Monday, Pete began Franke Park Day Camp. Mike took him over and picked him up and then I met up with Pete. We stopped for a snack and had decided to take the bus to soccer instead of riding because of the heat index. We got a Subway sandwich after soccer and then took the bus back downtown and rode bikes home from there. When we finally got home, I took Pete's backpack apart. Wet long pants from playing in the creek, bits of leftover sandwich in the lunch bag, a buddy burner, tshirt for tie dying that he forgot to leave in his cubby, and bunches of oak leaves in with his left over lunch. Oak leaves? Beats me!
This morning Pete and I rode over to Franke Park and then I rode to work. I was good for about 12 miles this morning.
