3 of the 4 seasons

We went to a really fun playground yesterday called Smith Memorial Playground. SUPER FUN! The park is located in Philadelphia, has 6 acres of playground space and a 24,000 square foot playhouse. And the best part - it is FREE. If you live in the area, or will be visiting Philly soon, I highly recommend it. They have lots of cool stuff like a huge wooden slide, a mini town to "drive" around (complete with parking meters), and even sprinklers to run through!

After playing outside all morning, my son came home with a nasty heat rash all over this chest and back. I have been encouraging him to run around naked. I think we might stay home today to give his skin a chance to cool off. It has been unbearably hot this week. I am soooo over summer. Fall sounds like a little piece of heaven, right here on Earth.

Because I am longing for colder weather, I have been busy crocheting again. My new specialty is winter hats. This is my latest creation...

So cute and so easy to make! I am thinking about doing a craft show again. I talk about this every. single. year. Despite all of my talk, I have never actually set-up a booth at a craft fair. Apparently, I just like talking about it.

It is so weird to me to hear people talk now about how hot they are. It is NOT HOT here in Sweden.

As for the hats, you are awesome at hats. A FLOWER???

Will's YMCA class just went to Smith a few weeks ago. He had a blast.

Not me, nope, never never never am I ready for Summer (the BESTEST season evah) to come to an end. I hate sweaters & cordouroys & mittens & coats & scarves (except for the one you made me!)& boots & cold wet children & high home heating oil bills & dark at 4pm....
I'll take nekkid babies, the pool, salad for dinner, paper plates, fresh fruits & veggies, shade trees anyday.

Love Porgie's new hat!
