Hot Summer Days

Story told by: Lainey

We’ve had some record-breaking heat lately (it was 106 degrees a couple of days ago)! Here’s some pictures of how we’re staying cool.

We don’t have air conditioning, but we do have a basement that keeps us cool. Brody can sleep through any type of weather, though!

Once he wakes up, we can’t wait to get to him!

During the peak heat of the day, we often stay inside to stay cool.

Sometimes it gets to be too hot inside, though, so we head outside to the sprinkler and the pool.

This fountain at a local park also does the trick to keep us cool!

We try to find all of the toys in the shade.

We had a successful trip to Costco with Mommy (although Henry was irritated that Mommy wouldn’t let him eat the peaches and animal crackers from the cart). The air conditioned car ride and the air conditioned store were quite nice!

Bonkerz is also air conditioned, so we’ve been spending some mornings there.

We entertain ourselves at home with Brody’s silly faces!

I think Brody’s face says, “If I stay still enough, maybe they won’t see me.” No such luck buddy.

We’re getting some big smiles out of this guy!

I wanted to take a picture of Mommy and Brody. This is the first picture I’ve taken. Watch out world! Mommy is teaching me the art of obsessively taking pictures, so I’m sure there will be many more to come!

Since our rooms are upstairs, we have window AC units to cool them down. Mommy and Daddy recently moved Brody from the bassinet in their room to the crib in his room so he can take advantage of the air conditioning. He’s getting so big! (And I really love his pink, flower-covered sleep sack. I’m sure he feels the same way about it.)

We love the hot weather because it means we get a little more TV time than normal! Henry loves “Thomas the Train,” so we will occasionally watch that.

For the most part, I’m done with naps. I’ll do a little bit of quiet time on my own, and then Mommy and I get some time together while the boys naps. We recently did a 4th of July craft with q-tips.

I had fun making these festive fireworks. Only a few more days until one of our favorite holidays!
