The pacific NW here in Washington State has been exceptionally hot this summer. It is not as normal as other parts of the country for homes to have built-in AC and when it heats up our homes get hot! The worst part about summer heat is the evenings! When it is this hot, cooking indoors is out because your home becomes an oven and we are left being the ones cooked. Trying to unwind and get to bed is impossible as we are left feeling sluggish. Cool baths after dinner are common and staying up late because it is too hot to sleep is a battle you can’t win with the kids! However, our ice cream man obviously does not feel my pain as every hot day around 10am (too early for ice cream in my home), he drives by and never again for the rest of the day. The kids often start asking why he doesn’t come around at dessert time and I really cannot answer that. You would think he’d be more successful with an evening on a hot day ice cream drive by. What I learned this summer was I needed to keep my own freezer stocked with ice cream. It is my go to when the heat starts getting to the boys come evening.
