Beating the heat

The heat is just suffocating lately...so much so that Ben's t-ball game was cancelled tonight. Luckily we started swim lessons today and we are doing back to back sessions (in hopes that Ben gets comfortable enough to actually put his head under water) so we will be at the pool for the next 4 weeks.
Other than that the kids are finding ways here at home to keep cool...
Like adding the sprinkler to trampoline time!

and getting a little group workout in.
Bo and I watch from the shade :)

They even created their own winter wonderland yesterday...
from my couch cushions...
while Daddy napped.

Now that is some summer fun! I would have died if I saw that when I walked into the living room!! You're such a good mommy.

The heat is driving me nuts. I was dripping with sweat while buckling the kids in their seats after venturing to the store. It's like the perfect combination with kids whining. Like totally. :)

I seriously wish it was that hot here. It doesn't really seem like summer. We've had some really hot days, but mostly it's not bad at all, but I need it hotter to go swimming!

And LOL at Bryce and them doing push-ups!

And also, I can just imagine what he thought when he saw the winter wonderland! Love it.

We loved sprinklers on our trampoline when I was a kid. Fun times!

You are a true blogger to grab the camera first. ;o)

Sprinkler and trampoline.....hmmm, I think I'd be too afraid of slipping off the edge (such a downer, huh)? Looks like fun, though. *wink*

OMGoodness, the Winter Wonderland! Really, the stuffing from the couch cushions?! I would have flipped (after I fetched the camera, of course).
