just another weekend, we're having a heat wave!

Someone let mother nature know we get her point. Its been hot as...well you know. Like heat indexes of over 100. I can deal with it for a few days, however long stretches are not going over well. Our A/C is working overtime baby! And not a drop of rain , consider us so lucky! We no longer have green lawns(except for my parents who water their grass), its nice and brown. And Prickly. And yucky.
So we've been rotating, Swimming at grandmas house..then air conditioning. Some days its just too hot to even venture outside. And some people in other states are receiving TOO MUCH rain. Can't mother nature balance us out a bit? huh?

In other news, Jax got his stitches out of his foot this past Friday. He was such a trooper and never even flinched. So now hes got butterfly type bandages over it and some cream to help heal it the rest of the way. But he can finally wear shoes now and swim. He had a long 10 day stretch without swimmnig and quick 5 minute showers/baths to get clean. Stitches are for winter! Not summer!

our mini vaca

Our mini vacation ended this past wednesday. We kinda ended it on a bumpy note. We had been staying at a waterpark/resort about an hour and a half from home. My youngest, Jax and I were on our way into our room to fetch our shoes from swimmnig to go decorate cookies. I opened the door towards me(the outside door) and heard a bloody scream. His poor little foot had gotten caught under the door and sliced a huge gaping wound into it. 
So off to the urgent care we went(after some first aid) and 5 stitches later we were done there. He did very well. Very little crying other than at first. Unfortunately there was no more swimming or getting wet for him but he did very well with this. 
Oddly enough when my oldest was 3, at the same resort, same time of year, he recieved 5 stitches as well. Boys are just toughies aren't they? 
More hair dye please...........

some summer fun

 We went to this thing in another town over where you can watch planes come and go, sit on tractors and see flight for life, which is the helicopter for trauma issues. We go every year and the kids really love it.
