Jace and I spotted this gorgeous cloud on our way to take some movies back last night... The weather was much milder yesterday, with temps in the mid-80s; we went on a bike ride with Brian and Daniel last night, too. This evening we went to ride the go-carts, first time in a few years for me. Brian had taken both boys a few weeks ago when I had a girls' night, so I was excited to join them tonight and see if I could keep up!

Rain... On the way!

We did have a bit of rain on Saturday, and it was AMAZING to feel the change on temperature outside after the rain started. We're thrilled to even see temps back in the low 90s, and this week we will apparently see some days with temps in the 80s - bliss! My flowers were so glad for the rain on Saturday - I have been watering them intermittently, but gave up on my lawn a couple of weeks ago... It looks as bad as it usually does in late August!

At the fair...

Headed to the Christian County Fair on Friday night, and it was an enjoyable evening once the sun went down and it cooled off a bit. Brian needed to go and help campaign for the county sheriff's re-election; Brian is the chief deputy for the county, second in command under the sheriff. So we spent some time with him at the Republican booth, handing out information and talking to the public.

We also enjoyed some time with Daniel, riding a few of the rides. He was with his mom, but we all walked around the fairgrounds together - I really appreciate that Brian and his ex-wife get along, and that we can all spend time together with Daniel in situations like this.

The photo of the day was "chair", and I thought this was a little more exciting than the work chair I sat in for eighth hours on Friday!

On the floor

Yep, that tile floor is the coolest place for the dogs these days, with temps in the 100s for the past couple of weeks. Rocky just walks in and flops down on the floor, so getting a photo of him was pretty simple. He's right there, most of the time.

Fireworks and fun, 2012

We enjoyed a low-key holiday and grilled out with friends Gail and Dan, and their kids. I've spent several years with them on the 4th, since they just live the next neighborhood over AND their driveway is nice and flat! We were pretty low-key on the fireworks as well this year, with the extremely dry weather and warnings about fireworks. Daniel enjoyed a few of the safer fireworks- snappers, smoke bombs and these long sparklers!

Best part of my day

One of my favorite things about Saturdays is getting up early, before anyone else is awake; I love the quiet, enjoying the morning with my coffee, some music and my book/iPad. Yesterday was my second of three vacation days this week, and it was like a deliciously relaxing Saturday morning!

Photo update

A few more photos to post...

bounce house that Brian set up,
and less than three minutes later -
