We ended the summer (I always think summer as ending at the end of August, and we're nearly there) on a great note around here. It was 103 degrees today. It hasn't been that hot all summer and then it cooled down to a bearable temperature this evening. Can't get any better than that!!!!

I think it's a beautiful thing when one of the last days of summer is spent running through the sprinklers. I also think running through the sprinklers is a lot like getting laugh a lot, but most of time your kind of miserable. A warm towel is an easy fix though!

After we ran, er um Park, ran through the sprinklers we made some homemade lemonade. I had about twenty peeled lemons that needed to be made into something (you will find out later why I had twenty peeled lemons...let's just say I kinda feel like a moonshiner.)

So, today I mixed, 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar. I heated them in the microwave until the sugar was dissolved. I squeezed (with the help of a certain 3 year old that lives here) 5 lemons making sure to take out all seeds. Ok maybe not all..but most. I poured the sugar water into the lemon juice. Then I added two cans of sprite and then filled the rest of the pitcher with water and ice. MMMMMM, perfection!!!

Tomorrow I will try another recipe and it's going to be even more awesomer. ( I know that's not a word, but it's fun to say. Try it. )
