Summer Lately

Summer's pre-Riv AND Murphy meant... I got to sleep in on the weekends. Sleep late at night and literally do nothing for majority of the week. The most exciting Ray and I ever got one summer was a trip to Riviera Maya and oh yeah, our honeymoon to Jamaica (which was mediocre).

Summer lately, for the Kim household, involves lots of outdoors time with both the pup and the kid. We take walks as often as we can and get out as often as we can as our little one tends to get cabin fever. Currently, our River backpack includes sunscreen, swimming diapers, extra clothes, and a bathing suit. This girl is obsessed with water. That's all she ever wants to do. Go to the pool, be near water, or bathe. It's been excruciatingly hot here in good ol' Virginia which has made staying outdoors tough for our furry pup but we always make sure to carry a water bowl for her just in case.  

Thankfully, I am the most tan I've been in 3 years which is always a plus when you're trying to disguise your flabby areas. 

Here's a glimpse of what we've been doing lately in the hot, humid, sticky, 100 degree Virginia weather. I hope everyone stays cool during this heat dome! Keep everyone including your pup hydrated at all times!

This is pretty much what Murphy does as soon as she comes back inside from the heat. Too hot to do anything but sleep.
