After nearly two weeks away, Friday afternoon we packed up and headed back to Virginia. We had a fantastic time with the Cousin Crew (and spending time with my Mom), but it was nice to return home. With nearly two weeks packed with day trips and adventures, I am happy for a little downtime to recover and relax. Of course, Robby is already missing his cousins and is peeking at the calendar to schedule a return visit.
In case you have missed the news, the past few days have been beyond hot. It has been take-your-breath-away, knock-you-to-your-knees and melt-you-into-a-pile oppressively hot. Despite our large A/C unit and a variety of fans, we were not able to keep the house comfortable.
Saturday the heat became so overwhelming and miserable that we decided to pack up and head to a hotel for a night. We checked in, cranked the A/C unit to high and headed to the indoor pool for a few hours. We had a great time and it was a wonderful way to beat the heat!
Our heatwave continues today but it is forecast to break tonight. Fingers crossed that we receive some relief from the obscene temperatures. I'm too old and too fat to handle triple digits with a heat index in the 120s.
