Dear summer,

I knew you were back in my life when the temperatures started reaching the low 90's. Then those mornings came when I walked outside and felt like I needed another shower and it wasn't even 10 o'clock yet. I was on to you. You and your high temperatures and ridiculous humidity.

Oh don't you think I've forgotten for a second how miserable we were when you were around last year. Sweating all day and sweating all night. We couldn't even enjoy going outside because there would be no relief when we got home. Just more sweating.

And I'm sure you thought you were going to waltz in again and make life borderline unbearable for a few months. But not this year.

Look, I don't know how to say this. It's just that it's so hard to muster the energy to do anything when you are around making it so uncomfortable inside and out. So...we bought something. Something that you're not gonna like. His name is Ken(wood). And he's amazing.

He arrived a few days ago and there's no chance he's going anywhere. At least not while you're around.

We hang out during nap time.

We laugh together at how ridiculously awesome it feels to be inside our apartment on a blazing hot day.

We goof off a lot, too.

So, I'm sorry summer. I know without you we wouldn't get to go swimming outside or run through the sprinklers at the playground. But I just couldn't be miserable another year. In fact, I think Ken(wood) might have a funny way of bringing us closer together.

Please tell me that you took these pictures of yourself!!! I can only imagine how many "run and jump into position" pics you had to take in order to get one that you liked!! I'm glad you finally decided that getting Ken was worth the money!!
