"I still think Tucson is one of my favorite places," I tell Tim as we sit in the garage on camping chairs.
"Even in the summer," I add for good measure.
It's true that I don't like the 100-degree days when the sun scorches on bare shoulders. There's no way that kind of temp can be enjoyable.
BUT - I've tried 90 degrees with high humidity. No, thank you. ;)
When the heat overpowers during the day, the girls get in swimsuits and splash in the plastic baby pool - long limbs and laughing voices.
We make popsicles in our Duo Quick Pop Maker by Zoku ($36.99 on Amazon). It's so easy: pour in juice or a smoothie base, wait 7-9 minutes, and lick-before-it-drips. We can only make 2 at a time, but then we can make two again w/out refreezing the container...so it's perfect for our little family. I recommend.
Some people get super fancy with their zoku makers, but we usually just fill ours up with Tropicana Pure Premium OJ - made from 100% Florida oranges. So refreshing (and healthy compared to treats in the popsicle aisle)!
I'm working with Tropicana as a TropiMomma, but, honestly, we'd buy their OJ anyway. It's 100% fruit juice and among the most affordable options at our grocery store. I'd obviously prefer to squeeze my own oranges, but I almost never have two free hands these days so...I'll go ahead and let Tropicana do the squeezing. ;)
