Holy Heat, Batman!

So what do you do when it's the 36th day of 100+ weather? (well, I think today is posted as the 36th day and we're looking at 7 straight more to go) You face it head on!! As most of you are even experiencing, this summer has been MISERABLY hot and caused a lot of cabin fever (especially us with toddlers!) Finding fun inside projects can get challenging - send your unique ideas if you think we haven't tried them!

So... yes! With our sunscreen, swim suits and ice water, Claire and I braved the hot weather last Friday and went to Sea World to spend some special time together. I LOVE being able to do something with Claire by herself! We had a great time seeing Shamu, feeding the birds and most of all, spending time in the water park. Claire is loving the water this summer as long as her head doesn't go under!

Waiting for Shamu.....

seeing Shamu! Can you tell she loves the big orca?!

Dr. Wally the Penguin came to visit his homeland! Claire got him last year when my parents were along for a Sea World trip.

Couldn't pass up posting this picture!

Claire eating goldfish and us trying to stay cool!

So we survived and actually, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. My stroller has a temp gage and at one time it said 107 - we can't wait for the fall! Please pray for some relief and for rain! I can't even imagine those who don't have the shelter and food they need.
