What we've been doing today

I don't know what the weather is like everywhere else, but it is hot in Oklahoma and I don't mean just oh, it is slightly warm outside, no, it is HOT, like major heat wave, insane amount of humidity, heavy sticky air, very little relief at night--that is how hot it is.  So, this is normally how our days go....we are all up by 7ish, dressed and ready to go by 8:30 or 9:00 when Micah leaves for work and mom and I take the boys outside to play for a little bit.  Actually, mom does some garden work while I just sit and sweat in the shade.  The boys play with their tricycle and car (that I decided today are both way too small for them) for about 45 minutes to an hour when their little faces are so beet red and their hair is wet from the sweat.   

So, here are a few pictures from our day today:

On your mark, get set, go!
Check out William's form! 
They did find time for a little argument:
Xavier would ride down the driveway and then pick up his bike and carry it to turn it around.  I love his look of determination:
After supper, we decided to hook up their sprinkler toy and William completely cracked us up trying to get a drink.
Running together through the water:
There isn't anything much sweeter to me than my sweet boys holding hands playing together:
Now, the boys are sweetly tucked into bed and I have spent some time editing pictures and getting them on the blog.  We recorded all of this season's 24 and have just started watching them with mom and so we are watching an episode of that and having some popcorn. I haven't found much time for scrapping, but I have loved spending time with my mom and boys. 

And that is what we did today! :)

Love the pictures! We've been doing about the same thing - taking them outside early and then letting them get in the little pool before lunch. It's all inside activity after that.

You've captured some awesome photos of the boys playing together! The extreme heat and humidity doesn't sound like a ton of fun though. Stay cool Becky!
