We finally got some heat in Portland this weekend! It was 102 on saturday which also happens to be the first day we broke 90. I like it. I don't think I'd like it everyday but there is no threat of that here, so I enjoy it kind of like I enjoy snow days (we don't get much snow around here either). I think I like the sometimes happy chaos that weather can bring here in Portland because our range in weather is so very small, everyone goes a little nuts (in a good way). So, not to miss out on some happy misery, I decided, to go find some water and we went to lake near my house. It was so crowded, not so great in general but great for people watching, which it turned out to be all we had energy for in our overheated stupor. We just sat on a grassy knoll, too hot to fight for a spot in the water and ate some snacks, even M+L laid back on our blanket and looked up at the big blue sky rather than the normal running off in two different directions. They would announce a curiosity they spotted here or there while my oldest ate a bag of cherries and I sat taking a photo here and there. At one point M said, "look mama it's a bird." Then L said "it's a plane.
How was your weekend?
