When the temperature is 102 F. and the heat factor is 108 F.? If you are as lucky as me you have a sweet niece and her husband that have a pool and family visiting from out of town that gives me the excuse to drive about an hour to Bethany, a bedroom community of Okla. City, and jump in and play with my nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and a few great, greats.
A whole mess of heathens… The young man closest to us with the love of his life and her daughter and his baby sister is my great nephew and his family visiting from Florida. Jeremy, not to be confused with another Jeremy in the family, brought Heather and Haley home to meet the family. Melissa (baby sister) and Haley hit it off from the airport. Where you find one you find the other. Those little girls are having too much fun playing.
This is what we call fun in our family… get a bunch together and play volleyball in the back yard and play in the pool and eat. I’ll post more on the eating because we are doing this all again today after church and there will be more of our wild bunch in from Ft. Worth and Nancy and Steve have quite a spread planned for our lunch. In the meantime I thought I’d post a few pictures for those of you suffering through the sweltering heat with us that don’t have a pool and a mess of kids to play with in it.
My sister is up from Ft. Worth for a visit and she and Sandie Kay, another great niece, are talking about Sandie’s nursing courses she’ll be taking this next semester. That handsome fellow that you can kind of see between them is the other Jeremy, Sandie’s husband.
My great niece, Sandie. She is such a doll and I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like because she and Jeremy live up north and east of Tulsa and she is busy with school and being a mom and wife. When the weather cools off I’m going up for a visit and teach her how to bake a potato. It’s one thing that I can cook and she says she can’t cook them so I’ll help her with that and Jeremy will grill the steaks… Sounds like a fair swap to me.
I’ll take some more pictures today but I just thought I would throw these out to you all and ask you what you do to cool off in the heat of summer?
