The forecast for today was right on the money; we had sunshine and warmer temperatures than we have been seeing. The wind even held off long enough for the kids to enjoy the slip 'n ' slide without feeling like they were taking a polar plunge.
The Man-Cub and his friends had a really good time. And that was despite (or, maybe due to) the fact that only a handful of their girlfriends were brave enough to don a bikini, liberally douse themselves with biodegradable dish soap, and hurl themselves down a plastic runway.
As far as I am concerned, it was the girls' loss.
The brave souls who did meet the challenge all had a really good time and I do believe that we can chalk it up as a success.
Now, to prepare ourselves for the crappy weather that the weatherman has forecast for the remainder of the week and into the holiday weekend.
