It has been so hot lately. And we all know what constitues as “hot” to us Washingtonians. So lemme rephrase my original statement; it has been absolutely agonizing lately.
Hitting 90 doesn’t happen very often around here, so when it does, half of us don’t even know what to do with ourselves besides stay inside where its safe and the other half of us get burnt to a crisp trying to get out and do something fun.
Luckily, I was able to get out with the girls the other day before it got too extremely hot. Thank goodness for baby sunscreen!
This is our little kiddie pool, a.k.a. our little piece of Heaven! I prefer small pools like this for a variety of reasons: 1. It’s easy to set and take down 2. It’s not terribly deep so you don’t have to worry as much (I still do though, who am I kidding) and 3. It’s great for sitting back with an ice cold drink and relaxing for a bit!
Even River enjoyed herself! I didn’t actually put her into the pool with us since her sister is known to be a little rambunctious, but I kept dripping the water onto her little legs and she loved it! Plus, just had to find a reason to put her into her adorable little swimsuit!
Hadley has so much fun in the water. She reminds me of myself when I was little; any excuse to get wet! I don’t think she’ll ever get tired of sliding down into the pool (and I may have gone down a few times as well).
In the evenings, after it’s cooled down
a little bit a lot, we also enjoy taking family walks around the neighborhood. It feels so good to be getting out and active again after being pregnant and lazy for so long.
And I can’t believe it’s that time of year again! It’s time for…
SEAHAWKS FOOTBALL! Now let me clarify something. Before I met Michael, I never watched football. I didn’t even know how it was played! Now, it has become a family event that we watch every single week! I know it’s only preseason, but I’m just glad our boys are back!
Daddy and his girls. I love that the gals are gonna grow up watching sports. I was never really interested, but now that I’m older I love to watch! (Still warming up to the Mariners, but we’ll see 😉 ).
Love my little Sea Gals! The expressions on their faces say it all. I love seeing their personalities come out. Hadley’s has been developed for quite some time, and she reminds me so much of her daddy it’s crazy! River is just now starting to smile and laugh, but she definitely knows how tell us when she wants something. Strong-willed, these girls!
River absolutely adores her big sissy. She watches her and always smiles when she comes up to her. I’ll never know what it’s like to be an older sibling, but I know Hadley is going to do an amazing job. I always remember looking up to my brother and wanting to be just like him. I know Hadley will set a good example and help River become the person she’s going to be.
Stay cool out there and GO HAWKS!
