Hottest day of the year calls for a pool party

Today was the hottest day of the year – 90 something degrees.. maybe even a 100.  Luckily we had an early start to our day including a trip to the dentist at 8 am and horse therapy at 10 am … back home for lunch and naps… so by the time we had our pool party it was 4:00 pm.

I realize my kids go to bed later than most of their friends (Maebh at 8 and Soren at 9) – but they also nap for THREE HOURS each day… how on earth can I give that up 🙂

We’re well rested and ready! 
The water feels warm – I’m not interested going in… 

I changed my mind, pick me up, pick me up!! 

Oh it’s so warm and I love it.  (mind you it had been in the sun all day – sooo hot!

Obsessed with bubbles

Say freeze pops

Oh no, two blue freeze pops was all that were left. I HATE blue things!!

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
