Summer Fun

We haven't just been sick this summer, but we haven't done any of our big vacations yet. Usually our July is chuck full of family vacations however this year they ended up being at the very end of July and the first of August so we've just been making our own fun until then.

Parker discovered my love for cookie dough and once we were done cleaning up the mess he decided to help me with the dishes. But once he was up next the the bowl he realized that the spatula still had some good cookie dough left on it so he went for it. I thought it was pretty funny because no one has ever eaten off the spatula in front of him before and yet he figured it out!
We took a day trip to my in-laws cabin and thought we would escape the heat. It was still really hot up there too so we let the kids play in the hot tub. Some bubbles had been spilled in there earlier and it made a pretty fun bubble play land once the jets were turned on.
My sister in law was kind enough to let us use a swim diaper for Parker so that he could cool off too. He had a blast!
And we don't know summer at our house with out irrigation. When our turn doesn't land in the middle of the night we like to let Parker enjoy the cool water. I know it seems gross and at first I was appalled at the idea, but he has so much fun and its just so hot. So I'm that mom that lets her kid play in the irrigation water.
It looks pretty cool when our turn is almost over and the whole back yard looks like a river!

Parker is so cute! I am so serious when I say that we need to get together. Call me or I'll call you. Maybe we can meet in the middle

I love irrigation water! We had that growing up in Mesa. Though, my grandma, who's grown up in the farm disapproved. She said the cows peed in the water. oh well. It was still fun!

Looks like lots of fun. We use to always play in the irrigation water and we survived might not be to sane but I don't think that caused it. We had a great weekend with you and Parker and Nathan. Thanks for all the fun!
