It’s July! Summer is in full swing.

Rosie made herself a red pepper flake sandwich and took a bite.  Then she squealed, screamed and demanded a towel to wipe her mouth out.  She took it pretty well.

Wilmette’s fourth of July celebration on the third of July. Jimmy sat at the top of this thing for a long, long, time. Another mom with twins went up and then Jimmy decided to slide down with her. He sat right between her an one of her little ones. Then the whole thing started to deflate and they were stuck. I felt so bad for this mom but she was a trooper.
