Summer is tough here in Florida. For the most part even the early mornings are pretty hot and humid. I try to get outside with the boys in the early morning, even if it's just a walk around the block. They both love to be outside, but when it's hot we can't stay out very long. Blake gets hot very fast, and so do I for that matter.
The afternoons the heat can be pretty oppressive, or else it is pouring buckets. Summer is our rainy season here. We get rain almost every afternoon from June to September around 2:30/3:00. It's caused by the heat effecting the breezes off both coasts colliding and creating havoc!
We try to play upstairs in our bonus room every day/every other day too. But, we also try not to use the air conditioner up there very much to keep the costs down. So yet again that can not be done in the late afternoons.
We have been playing a lot downstairs. Blake gets his computer time in the afternoon, which gives Colby time alone with me too. We read lots of stories, run around like crazy people, ride on the ride on trucks, play cars and whatever else the boys are in the mood to do each day.
I love the fact that they are learning to play together, and can be left to play on their own terms more and more. This provides me the opportunity to cook, clean and whatever else needs to be done. We will continue to enjoy the cooler days (that would be days where the temperature is under 93). We will enjoy playing in the pool, popping bubbles, digging in the sandbox, watching the rain pour down, stomping in the puddles, and all the other fun of a Florida summer.
