It is crazy hot here this week. We don't do really hot very well, with little air conditioning for the most part. We decided Saturday, the hottest day of the year, would be a great day to take our three kids, plus three extra, to the exhibition and spend the whole day outside on the rides. It was good fun for all, with lots of slushie breaks and a trip inside the colliseum to see the animals and get out of the sun. I was the only victim with sunburned shoulders. And my son won a scooter at the ring toss - a really nice, big scooter. It was pretty impressive. I took a book to read during my waits for the children to get off the ride and then run around to get back in line.
In reading, I have just arrived in Venice from a ransacked Rome, in the 1500s. It's fun to be in a historical fiction. (In the Company of the Courtesan by Sarah Dunant)
