Time to hit the ol' watering hole

Well it's another scorcher fur us in Forks, WA.  We hit over 90° yesterday and supposed to hit about 85° today so I think we're going to go down to lake pleasant and do some swimming.  It's so seldom we get the weather to do so around here, we have to jump on it when we have the chance.

Sunny all week, except for the 4th.

Well for me the 4th was a bit of a bust.  The wife had to work and our son was sick as a dog.  We watched the parade in the morning and he enjoyed that, but the rest of the day he slept.  I missed out on the derby and park activities because the little guy was sick, but it's ok cause it was heavy mist all day anyway.  So the vamps got to enjoy the 4ths activities this year.  However since then we have been vampire free as it has been sunshiny and hot outside (anything 80° or higher is sweltering for us).  There were lots of Twilighters in town on and around the 4th so business has been good the past week.

Moonlight Madness

It's Moonlight Madness time here in Forks, which means the shops in our podunk town stay open late tonight.  Usually most stores are closed up by 6 or 7, but on Moonlight Madness they're open from 7-11.  Hey vampires have to shop during the summer too right?  A lot of the store's also run special sales, there's some food and drink vendors around and they run a mini train through town (they used to have a trolley).  They are also shutting part of the road down this year looks like.
