A good ole' HamFam Reunion was in store for all of us this July. The blazing hot outdoors and the frigid indoors kept us all moving - constantly changing clothes or switching locations in order to achieve a normal temperature. Much time was spent on the screened-in porch, which is probable where I would live if it were my house.
Elijah was willing to brave the outdoors more than most, primarily because of the CATS!, whom he greatly loved to "pet". Almost as alluring was the pool Mom and Dad had set up for Elijah. A good thing about being in the country is you can use whatever swimming attire you like - a swim diaper, a real outfit, a cloth diaper, or - as Grandpa advocated, but we didn't attempt - your birthday suit.
