Outdoor Summer Fun

I don't know about where you are, but in North Texas it is already super hot. We are talking into the hundreds everyday and it is not even July! (I sure picked a great summer to be pregnant...)

With the heat and pregnancy, there is a pretty big limit on outdoor activities that we can participate in. Swimming and water play are at the top of the list, but it does not work out for us to do that everyday. Another way that our family gets outside is in the evening after dinner. We normally sit outside in our shady backyard and have popsicles, do bubbles or watch the sprinklers run. Eventhough it is normally around 7pm at this point, it is still super hot and we can only stay outside for 20 minutes or so.

Last night Emerson wanted to play with her pink sidewalk chalk during our after dinner time outside. Steve was telling her different people's names to "write" and she would concentrate on "writing" them in pink chalk. We eventually went through a list of all our family and friends and had moved on to animals and cartoon characters before we decided it was time to go inside.

Concentrating on her "penmanship"
"What name should I write next?"

More concentrating

"Look daddy, I wrote your name!"

Time for a water break before we go inside
