Scorching Heat, a Summer Sub, and Siblings

Does this not look amazing? It is!! I found this simple recipe from She has some yummy stuff on her website!! This is one of them! I thought, what a great summer dinner meal when it's hot and you don't feel like cooking and making something hot to eat? Boy was I right! It takes like 5 minutes to make, and is even delicious as leftovers!! Check out this site for the recipe!!

Hint: Layers of cream cheese, dijon mustard, Provolone cheese, ham, lettuce, tomatoes, and banana peppers - my fave!! Great for a picnic!

We have been having a lot of fun this summer! Because it's so hot, we spend a lot more time indoors than we ever have during the summer. Kind of a bummer! We do try to get out everyday though, doing something in the water!! Maddy likes to play dress up and puts this slip on her head as a veil. Well, Judah has seen Maddy do it, so one day when he was in her room, he put it on and came out like this! Hilarious!

Eating their afternoon snack!

Only 5 days left on the countdown calendar to go to Ohio to see Nana and Papa!!

Happy Father's Day, Daddy!

We went to the park last night after dinner, and at 7pm it was still 103 degrees! It didn't take long for the kids to be overheated. We didn't stay too long! Pass the water!

But they're okay! Well, Judah is ready to get out of the heat!

Maddy helped me make Pioneer Woman's Mocha Brownies for Father's Day!

At Uncle Joel's 14th birthday party, there was a pond, zip line, paddle boats, go-carts, animals, toys, etc. all at someone's house!! Maddy got to ride a horse by herself!!
Judah got to pet the horse, and that's their goat behind Aunt Lydia that just runs around like a dog!
I found them on Maddy's bed in her room looking at books together. Precious!

So, even though we have been hot, we have been enjoying the splash pad, the indoor pool at the YMCA with a kiddie area, and sometimes putting up the sprinkler, baby pool, and slip 'n slide in the backyard, if it isn't scorching. If you ask Maddy about the heat here, she says it is "nasty hot." She must have heard me say that!! Hope you all are enjoying your summer! We sure do miss that Chicago beach!!
