M, T, W

As in Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.
On Monday we went to the splash pad.  Out goal is to go to a different one every Monday.  This was splash pad #2.

Elliott looks like Paul Revere.

Elliott is wearing Spencer's old size 24 months suit.  Later in the afternoon I told Spencer to get into his suit for swim lessons.  He accidentally put on Elliott's and wore it for close to an hour before either of us noticed.  Size 24 months.  Sigh.
(Don't tell him I told you that story.  He was mortified when it happened.)

Spencer built this all by himself.  We took these pictures and 1 second later Elliott knocked it over.

On Tuesday I went to work, drove home and picked up Spencer and took him for an allergy shot, dropped him back off at home, went to the dentist for a cleaning, came back home and got the kids ready for swim lessons, sent them to swim lessons with Michael, went to Target, came home and worked out, took a shower and then ate dinner in the car on the way to the hospital to meet....
Hollis Marie! 
She was about 3 hours old here. 
Megan was totally ready to drink a margarita, but knew it would probably end in puking, so she refrained.

She's pure sweetness.
For our Something Awesome Wednesday we went to the Sea Life Aquarium.  It was our first time there.  It's been open for an embarassing amount of time considering we've never been. 

This turtle maintained a scary amount of eye contact with Spencer.


This was in the jelly fish room.  It was dark, there was glow in the dark splatter paint everywhere and they were playing disco music.  Elliott was getting his dance on.

The aquarium is attached to a huge mall.  After we went through once we went into the mall to get a snack.

Then we went through again.  The second time took about 1/8 the amount of time as the first time.
There was a fun play room at the end.  We actually ran into someone I used to work with.  I haven't seen her in years.  She has 2 kids now too and we planned a future play date.  I love it when stuff like that happens!

Spencer got ahold of the camera and put it to use on the way home.


This is our forecast for the next 4 days.  I don't care what anybody says, but 117 degrees is very different from 105 degrees.  When people say that any temperature over 100 degrees is just hot and the same, they haven't experienced 117 degrees.
  We're pretty much not going to leave the house after Friday morning.

I am so jealous of all the summer fun although actually you would be so proud of me for really trying to get out and spend this week with the boys. I really am trying to be involved with the kids this week and enjoy our last week together before baby sister arrives. I had cleared off my desk at work on Friday in anticipation of baby's arrival and my attorneys are on vacation this week so I figured it was just pointless to go back. Now I just need to blog about it...sigh! I love Elliott's Paul Revere look. Spencer and Evan are both doing swim lessons. Evan's last lesson is today. He has gotten much better at swimming underwater so I am thankful for the progress he has made. I don't think we'll have that problem with Brody as he loves going under and pouring water on his own head in the pool. Haha! Tell Megan I said congratulations on the beautiful baby girl and maybe one day our girls can meet! Hope you guys have even more fun the rest of the week even though it is so unbearably hot! Hey, I thought I was going to die sitting by the pool with the kids yesterday when it was in the 90s. Of course, it was also very humid with no breeze at all making it very difficult to breathe so that's my excuse. ;-)

Looks like a fun Wednesday! I like the heat, but yeah, that is too hot for me. Hope you're doing okay and the AC's are working well.
