Wow! It's been so hot lately, we haven't felt like moving. It's cool cuz the place we're stayin' at has this crazy-huge pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas so you can just grab a book or your Gameboy and chill out. Nice.

Yesterday the heat was totally getting to us so, Simon and I decided to invent our very own summer treat to cool ourselves down. Amy, of course, had to weasel her way into helping us by whining to mom, who made me include her. Grrrr! Sometimes that kid really annoys me. Anyway, first we grabbed some juice and dumped it into some Dixie cups from the hotel bathroom, tossed some popsicle sticks in (we found those at a craft store) and put 'em in the minibar freezer. They were pretty good, but they melted so fast! I had drippy popsicle juice all over my arms. Not cool.

But we did, eventually, hit the jackpot when it comes to cool summer snacks. Since the popsicle thing wasn't working and we didn't have a ton of ingredients to play around with, we decided to throw our box of Poptarts in the freezer. Yeah, I know - it sounds a little weird but man, do they taste good. They cooled us down and there was no drippy mess. Trust me. You have to try this at home!

I'm going to have to share my new recipe with Dylan when I get home. That is if he remembers who I am. It's starting to feel like I've been away for years. Okay, a little of an exaggeration, but it does feel like this trip has been going on forever. But who am I to complain? A couple weeks of pool/sun time with my best friend is pretty great.

PS - Thanks to all you peeps who sent in your thoughts from my entry last week!

    My brother is 15 and he makes fun of everything I do. I used to get along with him when I was younger but now that we're older he's started acting like a jerk. He always picks on the things I'm most insecure about and it happens all the time. What should I do?
