Summer Refreshment (Part 2 of 2)

This is Dell's! Frozen Lemonade slush!!

Whenever the temperature passes 70 and the sun is out these little stands pop up. I think they are built into the ground and swing in and out at a certain barometric pressure created by a combination of amount of sun and warmth.

After catchin' the flava a few times since part 1, I think that I prefer the flava betta. cuz ya gotzta catch da flava!!! Both of these are so nice on these hot muggy days. Especially when you drive a beater of a car with no AC and in which the driver's window doesn't roll down!

Go Sox...

They may have lost but it was awesome.

Fenway was amazing.

The Fenway Frank was very close to being worth $4.00.

I love my co-residents!!!

Summer Refreshment (Part 1 of 2)

I drive past at least 3 or 4 of these things as I make my way through the ghetto each day. They are so tempting and I have resisted "Catching the Flava" each time until today. These delicioso refreshments are somewhere between an ice cream cone and a snow cone. The Latin server packs this flavored ice in a little dixie cup and it takes the edge off of the hot humid weather! I tried the passion fruit, but there are many other tropical and non tropical fruit "flavas."

Fun? I'm not sure.

Saturday was filled with potential: eggs benedict, say goodbye to visiting ohio friends, garage sells, library, and the tall ships festival in Newport! (Lots of tall masted ships come to port from all over the world: Germany, Canada, Indonesia, etc.) in Newport and you can go on them and tour them.) And we did all that. So, was it fun, exciting and wicked awesome? It certainly was until it got a little fuzzy around 2 or 3 O'clock in Newport. The weather was hot, yet nice. Newport was gorgeous, the ships were majestic. However, the best way to sum it up is: the investment made was > the return. Sammy was a bit pekid, Newport was crowded. We had to park and take a bus to the docks. No stroller + 3 kids + hot day= tired arms, sore back and low blood sugar. In summation, it was a fun trip and everyone actually behaved well, including Em and me, but too much had to be expended. Once we stopped at Panera bread and got some dinna we all pepped up and were able to make it back to the bus.

Next year, it may be more rewarding to simply watch it on TV. I'm a little nervous about trying to go to the Bristol Parade on Wednesday, but it is the nation's oldest 4th of July celebration! Wish us luck.

The resulting feet from wearing sandal on our day trip. (Sam's only seem clean in comparison to Max's.)

P.S. the ship with max and the cannon was in Pirates II. It is the merchant vessel that gets eaten by the Kraken around the 18th minute of the movie. Her name is Providence out of Providence, RI.
