I think this is our last nice day for awhile. My friend, Sandy, and I have started walking early in the morning a few days a week to beat the heat and get in shape. But today wasn’t too bad til late afternoon. This morning after my walk with Sandy, Madison, Ellie, and I headed to the park. She is getting better on the swings the more we practice. I still don’t trust her grip enough to swing her too high, but it is getting higher each visit. Then, we came home and put Ellie down for a nap. We called my dad to see if he wanted to go see the auction animals with us after Ellie woke up. So, he came around 11, and we took our parade across the street. This time we saw pigs in all combinations of colors – pink, black, brown, black with pink stripes, pink with black spots. We saw some goats, a few sheep, and LOTS of cattle. I forgot my camera, so we didn’t get any pictures with Grandpa. He stayed for lunch, a little play time, and conversation before heading home. This afternoon we got the pool out. We tried for a group photo…
….It didn’t go so well. (I wanted some of them in their matching swim diapers, purchased at DiaperHQ from my friend, Rachel… if you want one, just order and put her name in the comments! They are reusable, so I don’t have to spend a fortune and waste so many disposable ones.) I opted for some individual photos instead. Here is Madison, the photographer:
And Ellie (I think the pool water was a little too cool for her liking)
I hope we can handle the heat the next days. I need some suggestions for some cool activities for us – maybe some that involve air conditioning and indoors… Have a great Friday!
