This week in our neck of the woods it has been HOT, HOT, HOT. We had to think of some creative ways to keep ourselves busy while enjoying our comfortable AC indoors so today we made some sail boats with juice boxes and a few other craft supplies we had laying around the house.

We loaded our boats up into the tub, but we’re itchin to fill up our kiddie pool. We can’t wait to take these babies outside on a day when it’s a little less scorching! We even thought we might take them to the pond in our neighborhood park. Take them anywhere you can find some water and have an adventure!box boats_0710_0065 box boats_0710_0093 box boats_0710_0102After we raced until our heart content we set our little boats on the windowsill to dry and had ourselves a few more gummies. The makings of a great afternoon! Hope you guys are enjoying the summer sun & finding ways to beat the heat.
