One look at the Weather Channel will tell you that life on the East Coast has been less than spiffy of late. Hot, hot, HOT and humid. Blurgh. Add to that an old house with completely inadequate (though fully functioning) air-conditioning, and you have a recipe for a long, cranky summer...unless you beat the heat and run away to the West Coast for 10 days or so, which is exactly what we did!
The girls had their first experience playing in the snow on Mount Hood near Portland, Oregon. They loved it! What's not to love about throwing snowballs and sliding around in the snow, having a blast, and not getting cold because the air temperature was around 80F?
We may have to move.
