It's Hot in the Backyard!

And the front yard and the van and the garage and the shed and the pool and the....

Props to Rick for the reminder of the old SNL skit. I have been using a paraphrased version of Eddie Murphy's line all week.

It finally hit 100 degrees here this week. Since we have a nice AC system, The AtHomeFamily hardly noticed until today. The kids and I hit the hike and bike trail downtown early this morning. We would have cruised along at a decent clip and gotten back in the car before the heat took command of the trail, but there was just too much to do and too many ponies to see.

Where else can you go downtown on a weekday morning and watch the local miniature horse rescue group walk ten ponies on the jogging trail? The Talker was in heaven, he got to pet the ponies for 20 minutes. The Princess was not impressed with the ponies and thought no one was paying sufficient attention to her.

Once home, the heat took hold of The Talker and he took a 3 1/2 hour nap! Maybe I'll get him to run some windsprints on the back porch tomorrow. AtHomeDaddy deserves another day of 3 1/2 hour naps. Don't you agree?
