It seems like everyone is on vacation the last two weeks of July…maybe that's why there isn't much happening this weekend. Take time to beat the heat–you can visit one of the many town pools, go ice skating, catch a movie or hit the mall. And pray for some relief from the heat wave! Stay cool, mommas!
