Splash Park

We've gotten into the habit recently of eating early and then going out in the evenings after hiding out from the sun all day. Last night we went to the Splash Park down by the lake during sunset to cool off.

Although you might not be able to tell from the picture below, Maggie is standing in a waterfall.

We've also gotten into the habit of grilling chicken in the backyard. Glen has figured out exactly how to cook it so everyone in the family is happy, including Sean. :) We've also grilled a lot of eggplant. Our CSA keeps delivering eggplant and none of use particularly like it, but its tolerable when grilled.

This past week we've been visiting a lot of public pools to go swimming. Grandma's pool is infested with algae and the chemicals she had to put in there to kill it make us not want to go there for awhile. Unfortuneately, the high chlorine at the public pools is really making Maggie's eyes irritated as she swims underwater with her eyes open so much, and wont wear goggles. The splash park was a nice change to give Maggie's eyes a break. However, Glen and I were still hot. Well, we got a few splashes to cool us off.
