Happy "Holy Hell Batman" Birthday To Me!
Deja vu! A year ago today on my Birthday, I was hiking out of the Grand Canyon with my family and wrote an article to tell the tale of our adventure http://www.chesapeakefamily.com/My-Kids/Family-Travel/a-grand-canyon-of-an-adventure. What I remember vividly was the extreme heat and here we are a year later but in Maryland and the temperatures are nearing 115 with the heat index. ACKKK... now this is hot but I really shouldn't complain because the temperature at the bottom of the Canyon in the sun topped 140 degrees. Don't let anyone fool you by saying it's a DRY heat... as if that makes a difference... HOT is HOT no matter how you slice it (or sweat in it!). What can I say... I must be one HOT Mama that the heat follows me around on my Birthday. Next year I think I'm going to escape to Alaska but for now it's A/C full on and an icy, cold, refreshing Mike's Hard Lemonade. Some crab crackin' and ice cream cake are also in order!
