It's crazy hot here, in the 90s in my house. Expected to be up to 110 in Olympia, which is unheard of! Record breaking heat. We have no A/C, like most people here, because this just usually doesn't happen. It's supposed to cool by the weekend, into the mid 80s, but until then we are now looking at the two hottest days of the week. We are sticking to indoor/cool activities, spraying the dog down with the hose, sleeping in the basement and we filled up two inflatable pools. DH told Butters having two pools makes us rich!
(This isn't forced perspective, he's actually holding a giant piece of chalk).
We visited the Newport Aquarium on a rainy day. Did Coney Island in the evening-Butters road all the rides including the 4 story drop-Scream Machine, the swinging ship and Ferris Wheel. Here he is on the last ride of the day. E wanted to ride everything, but for some she was too short. She did the planes, train and the giant slide.
I went to the farm with the guys and the girls did a shopping day. I tried to represent my gender well-I climbed a ladder to spray paint the cabin (painted the ladder) and I pull started one of the four wheelers after my 13 year old nephew offered to do it for me.
We also celebrated a very important 40th birthday, complete with a fireworks display. No picture of the birthday girl, I don't want to embarrass her, she doesn't like attention.
Lastly, we tried to get the elusive photo of all the grandkids. And it was the girl that caused all the problems!
