What can children do during a heat wave you ask?
Two of our grandboys gathered toys
or whatever would fit into their boxes.
Then we filled them with water and in the freezer they went.
Such excitement when it was frozen hard
and ready to take out to the backyard.
Their blocks of ice popped right out of the boxes,
and they happily went to work.
They hammered and chopped trying to escape their toys.
Leo got a bit overzealous with his hammer.
I was afraid someone would lose a finger or toe, or head.
Karen found a teeny tiny Juliet sized hammer.
And I must tell you,
I finally found a decent popsicle the kids LOVE.
I just don't have it in me to give them popsicles made with high
fructose corn syrup and artificial sugars.
So these that are made with
regular ol' cane sugar and lots of fruits and vegetables.
They have been a hit so far.
