Splash Away

With this heat, outdoor activities almost have to be by water, or in water, preferable icy water lol.  When Courtney lured  convinced me to move to Texas, I don't think she mentioned that the sun is so hot it will bake your skin off.....Thanks Court! :-)

Anyway....it seems to be the consensus of the group of moms I hang with that we should congregate near water.  Today we met up at a splash pad near downtown.  Mimi is the only one of the bunch that LOVES to run head first through these sprinklers. Observe the evidence below....

They had a pretty nice little playground too but the slides and climbing areas get so hot it burns the kids skin, for real.  After 1.5 hours, we packed up our soggy red-faced children and stopped at the Whole Foods Flagship Market downtown for lunch.  Their lunch bar(s) are AMAZING.  Good think I hate going through the traffic to get there or I'd spend my "Whole" paycheck there....hahahaha nice pun right?  Okay anyway......on the roof above the store they have a shaded area to eat and a playground.  We ate our lunches and let the kids play until they literally told us they were tired and wanted to go home. Nice.  

Mimi is down for her nap and I am going to grab a shower and do some dissertatin' (redneck for dissertation).  Cheers

Look at that girl!!! I wish Claire were more like that. She likes baths, but hates getting wet otherwise. If she spills water on her shirt she freaks out, lol!
