So dang hot

Good Lord! It's HOT! I just checked to get an official reading and it says it's 101, but feels like 95. Sheesh!! The themometer in our livingroom says it's 80 in the house, but I know it's at least 5 degrees warmer here upstairs where the computer is.

Thankfully the high is being forecasted as *only* 89 tomorrow and then 80 and 86 the following two days. Ahhh, a reprieve! :)

I need to go buy a little kiddie pool and put it in the yard for me and Ava. She wanted to play outside earlier today (of course - when does she not want to play outside?) and, while it's not as bad in the shade and with the breeze, it's still just so dang hot. I let her play with her watering can and soak herself so she wouldn't get too warm. She decided to periodically wipe water on my arms and legs to "clean mommy" and I didn't protest one bit. ;)

We got out of the heat for a little bit today to go buy party supplies for next weekend and we also hit Vitamin Cottage for some groceries. The cashier at the party supply store asked Ava what her name was and she answered "Ava" (ever so quietly) for the first time to a "stranger!" We've been working on the answers to "What's your name?", "How old are you?" and "How are you doing?" lately since those seem to get asked most frequently. Anyway, I was so proud. :) Then there's a woman named Aruna who works at Vitamin Cottage and seems to know all of the kids by name who's parents shop there regularly. At first I thought Ava was singled out because Aruna fawns on her every time we go in, but then I heard her call at least four other kids by name today. Anyway, today she asked Ava how old she's going to be (because we were talking about her upcoming birthday) and Ava answered her as well. Though what she said sounded more like "two months old" instead of "two years old," but at least she's got the two part down. :)

Ah well, the heat here is awful in the summer. We were super hot a few weeks back, but these past couple days it's been in the 80's. So nice!

Seren knows her name, age and such, but she refuses to talk to anyone! She can even spell her name! She sometimes won't talk to her own grandparents! I think most people don't even know that she knows how. :) I'm starting to think that some family members think she's stuck up.
Oh well. :)

isn't it sad when the 80s feels nice and cool? i heard denver broke the record today at 102 degrees. ugh. it's going to be one hot summer.
LOL about your family thinking seren can't talk or is stuck up. i say let them think that. :oP
usually ava just giggles and giggles whenever anyone asks what her name is or how old she is, etc., so today was pretty unusual. :)

today feels so much better compared to yesterday!

Missed you yesterday btw ;)

I took the kids to the lake (union)to swim last week, I think we will do it this week too, it wasn't too crowded and Ellie enjoyed playing in the sand & water :)

keep cool!

dawn - isn't it crazy? the house still feels cool and it's almost 1 p.m. i could get used to this. :) i'm actually taking advantage of the "cold" streak to do some baking today.
union is a good idea. we'll have to chk it out sometime. jody and i went there years ago and it was kind of nasty, but i've heard they cleaned it up quite a bit since then.
we had a baaaad night tues. night and there was no way i was getting us up early (for us) to make it to the mtg. (i'm a slacker.) hope it went well. :)
