The weather has been hot lately and the heat has been almost unbearable at times. It has been a long hard week and this afternoon the sun actually brought me comfort. I sat with Annika and Ben in the backyard in the shade and gazed up at the clear sky. I was finally able to breathe. Life is good.

Of course I only went into the dollar store for one thing. This was not it. But it is so cool. I am putting it in my purse. I can never find a screwdriver when I want one. Now I don't have any excuses.

The park opened up a few days ago and we took some of the kids there this morning before church. It was already warm. (The high today was 97 degrees.) There were a lot of people already there. We saw joggers, dog walkers, families with children of all ages, park workers texting as the rode bikes on patrol, and Birmingham City policemen on bikes.
It was actually a bit surreal to see the city skyline behind the kids as they played. The soft playground had a collection of climbing structures that I haven't seen before. The wall around the playground was something I haven't ever seen before. It was heavy wire holding large stones together in block form. We had a great time. If anyone is looking for something to do downtown outside go check out the Railroad Park. Click here to see the park's own website.

Lyn has been practicing for a few weeks now with her volleyball team. Tonight is her first game of the season. We thought the team colors were going to be purple. Oh well, orange goes good with Lyn's hair.
