Dear Peter,

I hope you are doing well. Today was a really nice day, although it was HOT. We took dear older nephew and the little girl we babysit to the park this morning. We intentionally went early as to avoid the heat. We arrived about 9:30 am and stayed about 45 minutes. It wasn't too bad. It was actually really nice. There was a nice breeze, and it was so pretty. The kids played hard. We did not walk the walking trail like we used to. It is about a mile around, and I just can't do that anymore. Not yet. HOWEVER, we DID walk the tree line around the "meadow". It is about 1/4 of mile. I am so proud that we did that. I finished it!! :-) The kids loved running in the flowers (there was no high grass), and they even found a forgotten Easter Egg. I did make them throw away the candy inside, but allowed them to wash and clean the egg so they could keep it. (Hey, Dora the Explorer was on it. What else could I do?) :-) We made our way back to the playground equipment where they continued to slide and swing for a little longer.

We came home, ate lunch, did school and little girl went to sleep until she was picked up at 3:00 pm. By that time the temp was over 90 degrees with no breeze at all. Inside the van it was 105 degrees. Oh my goodness are we dreading the temps this summer! :-) It was so hot we decided to have sandwiches for supper so we didn't have to turn on the stove. Lunch tomorrow will be leftovers nuked in the microwave and sandwiches for supper. Wednesday night will probably be sandwiches for supper as well, but dear nephew will be eating a hot meal at church so everything will be fine. :-)

Well, that's all for the weather update. I hope the weather is a lot better in Neverland. We plan to go the park again on Wednesday morning about 8:00 am. Before it gets too hot. Dear older nephew will probably swim in the morning around 7:00 am, before school and before the heat gets too bad. :-) Wish I could join him.

Tell Tink and the Lost Boys I said to stay cool, and use their sunscreen! :-)
