Baseball Summer

Oh my goodness, it's HOT!!!!!!!!!! I think summer has finally arrived. It's been over 100 degrees all week. We are going to need popsicles, sprinklers, and ice cream immediately over here. Going to do alot of trying to stay cool today. I was contemplating doing some baking, but I don't know if I want to even turn on the oven. Even if the end result would be double chocolate fudge brownies, the heat may outweigh my sweet tooth. I know, I don't believe it either.

So...while we try to stay cool, i'll share this layout I did using the July Crazy Daisy kit. I've been saving this photo since last summer...waiting for the perfect paper...and I think I found it in this kit! This is my husband and son and friends at a Dodger game last summer. And not just any Dodger game, they had tickets RIGHT behind home plate, about 4 rows up. Pretty much the best seats ever. It was all you could eat cracker jacks, popcorn, water, and sodas. Waiters came around with icy cold towels for your neck (because it was crazy hot) and to take your order for other food. All the kids got to meet the players as they were leaving the clubhouse after the game. It was pretty amazing.


I needed something to compliment that beautiful Dodger blue color and I think the colors in this kit were perfect. Such a great memory for my hubbie and son associated with this photo!

Hope you are all staying cool this weekend...thanks for stopping by!

Hi Mara,

Hasn't it been horrendous these past few days? I knew that beautiful June weather wouldn't last forever!

Stop by my blog and try that Watermelon Sherbet Smoothie recipe I posted a few days ago. They are an AWESOME heat buster - we've blown through 2 watermelons making them this week - and plan to pick up some more next time we're at the supermarket!

Hugs
