It's hot everywhere but it has been just unbearable here. Thursday evening we got a tiny bit of relief in the form of a rain shower that lasted all of 5 minutes. It got a little cooler and the rain cooled the pavement off enough that the kids could run around without shoes. We were playing in the backyard and waiting for the "storm" to arrive. It seemed like we were going to get an actual thunderstorm but it went south of us and we just got sprinkles. The kids thought it was just OUTRAGEOUS to be outside while it was raining but let me tell you - it felt so good!
