Dancing with Emmett

This week has been all about trying to stay cool.  It was in the 100's again yesterday and probably again today.  The air runs all day long and I know our bill will be over $100 dollars but I don't care because staying cool is worth every penny.  Its hard to do anything in this heat, but later this week we have a bunco party and painting and vino and I am really looking forward to getting out and doing something.

It is sooo hot outside!  Yesterday it was in the 100's!  When outside it feels like you are standing in an oven.  So we have been spending a lot of time inside in the cool air conditioning.  Its hard to even find things to do where you stay cool.  I would say go shopping in a mall, but I have no extra money to spent soo... we are inside.

I have been able to do some art for my friend and her soon to be born daughter, and I am also almost finished with the NHRA drawings.  I only have one drawing left, but its of 3 people.  I hope I can get motivated enough to finish it this week.

 These were both copies of paintings my friend asked for, not my original designs.

The messy art table.

The Ocean

 Last weekend was soo hot at the beach that it turned out to be a great opportunity to have Emmett put his feet in the water for the first time!  In his defense, the water was really cold, especially since he has never really felt cold water before.  So we walked down and as the water rolled in I stuck his feet in.  He let out a blood curdling scream the first 2 times I put his feet in, but by the 3rd time he didn't seem to mind.  He was probably thinking, I don't like this but obviously mom is going to keep doing this lol. 
 Here I am thinking we are taking a nice family photo hahhaha

We had the most beautiful sunset that night!  This is the real photo no changes have been made at all.
Thank you to my Dad for all of these excellent photos!

Oceanside Vacation

This last weekend we had a small vacation to Oceanside.  We were invited to our good friend's baby shower.  She is due the beginning of December, and she is still so tiny you wouldn't even think she is pregnant.  We decided to make this a weekend away since its so pretty there and the weather is still really nice.  The last time we had a weekend in Oceanside it was right after we got married.

We drove over Saturday morning and had lunch at the Ruby's on the pier.  Grant had already been surfing that morning, so he met us there when he was done.  We were actually able to get a few photos of him in action since he was surfing in a location that was easy for us to get to.  After lunch and surfing we went back to the hotel and went swimming.  Sunday we woke up early and went for a walk along the harbor and around 1pm we went to the baby shower.  It was so nice to be by the beach relaxing, the only draw back was there was no breeze what so ever and it felt like it was 100 degrees outside with 100% humidity.  You would just drip with sweat!  Besides the heat it was really nice!

 Modeling LOL

We all went swimming.  Emmett loves the water.
 The hottest morning walk by the beach I have ever had .

My mom and Mary (best friends from high school)
 Brittany (the mama to be) holding Emmett.  When we fist got there I left Grant with Emmett at the party so I could get more stuff out of the car and I guess he realized I was gone and started screaming!

Such a fun weekend!  Can you see the sweat? hahahhha.
