Feels like Summer Time and flip flops

It has been sooo hot here lately and yesterday we finally got some of that good smelling stuff we call rain. My mom and dads garden has been needing it desperately.  Ours has too but since ours is MUCH smaller we can easily keep it watered with the sprinkler.  She called me at work to let me hear it rain over the phone.. yes, she was very excited about the rain.  
here she is with the first squash this year

and here is daddy checking another plant - he wasnt supposed to be in the garden. 
He was still healing from surgery a few weeks ago.  He's hardheaded like that... probably where
I get it from. 
Summertime always means flip flops although we wear them right up through fall and sometimes in the winter too.  Becca at The Texas Darlings is hosting a bloggy flip flop exchange.  It sounds like a lot of fun and a new pair of flip flops is always a good thing.

Here are the details of the swap (copied from Beccas site).. but please hop over and say Hi and email her if you're interested in joining the swap.  You have until this Sunday night June 12th to join in. 

Bloggy Flip Flop Exchange
