The Glow of Sun Beside Me/ Menu Plan Monday
How do we know it's summer?
Oh my dear Internet friends, I have the living embodiment of a fine sunny day laying next to me on the bed, whimpering in pain and glowing like a radioactive beached salmon.
Ah yes, indeed, my dear Rob is burned to a crisp, glistening with Solarcaine, and glowing a nearly neon pink.
We were working out in the pool area today. Fortunately, I was working on cleaning out the cabana. I may have been surrounded by leaves, spiders and spider webs and tons of wood shavings from wood bees, but at least I was protected from the sun!
Rob was doing the weeding around the perimeter of the pool. He had on a pair of swim trunks and no shirt. The boy is just FRIED. I told him a couple of times to put on sunblock but he insisted he was fine.
Uh huh, sure you are, honey. ;-)
I had put sunblock on the three kids. Unfortunately, Chris got burned also, though not as badly as Rob. I'm not sure why, unless the sunblock washed off his skin more rapidly than I expected. Or maybe the 65 degree water he was in FROZE it off? Sheesh!
Chris swimming last June:
So, another summer starts.... the Margarita machine made it's first batch of frozen drinks. the calendar is chock full of pool parties- scheduled for almost every weekend of the summer, swimsuits and towels hang to dry on chairs both inside and out. The smell of chlorine lingers in the air and I love, love LOVE the summertime! --------------------------------------------------------- For more great menu ideas, join Laura at Orgjunkie.com!
