Summer came early to 'sconsin.

Wisconsin has weird weather. I know most of you who live in more southern states think its just plain cold here, but really, it would be better to just characterize it as 'weird'.

Hoser.

Temps can regularly fluctuate by 20-30 degrees overnight. We've had snow in every month but June, July and August. (We're finally home free - WOO HOO!)

Please, no pick-chers.

We've had winters with hardly any snow...until March. Other years there have been blizzards in time for Trick or Treating.

(1) WAHOO! Slip-n-slide!

It can hit 90°F in the summer with what feels like 9,000% humidity. Just months later, temps can drop to -20°F.

(2) Running...

I once camped over Memorial Day weekend, in a tent, in 50° rain. But Mother Nature? She was nice to us this year.

(3) Splash!

Temps in the eighties. Skies with only wispy little clouds. And sun. Beautiful, beautiful sun.

Will, splash

And we enjoyed every single minute of it!

Pics were taken with my Nikon D60. The series of shots of Nick on the slip-n-slide were each taken a second apart!

This post linked to Beth's You Capture. This week's theme: Best Shot. As in singular. I totally cheated. But if I had to pick just one, it'd be that last one!

Please tell me they were yelling 'kowabunga!!' at some point in the slide, or 'gnarly boobs...'
