A late afternoon dip in the cool waters.
Just the thing to break the monotony of a scorching heat wave that has not let up.
Days that have required a little siesta in the afternoons to renew energy levels.
The gift of water, refreshing and cold.
Laughter with cousins and friends was the perfect thing for our 4th of July.
No fireworks required, we made our own sparks of entertainment well into the early evening.
Topping things off with giant oatmeal cookies and laughter all the way home.
Hope you are having a great start to your week and that your 4th of July was a safe one!
