Summer Stuff

Zac and I spent most of the day riding around on his motorcycle, running errands, while my parents kept the kids. We opened a new bank account and had smoothies. I got sunburned, but it was so much fun just riding around. It's so hot outside! We came home and took the kids for a walk around the neighborhood.

Sick Kids

Carlton and Rachel's cat had a litter of adorable kittens... I'd obtain one, except the boys in my family are allergic, which is another reason why we don't have Amber.

Meanwhile, the babies are sick. Leah has a fever and James has been throwing up. They probably have a virus from one of Carlton's kids.

This Week in Pictures

Zac and I decided on not buying fireworks for July 4th this year. I had to work late and by the time I got home I was too tired and the kids were already asleep. Instead, Alex and Zac barbecued a variety of meats so I filled the new plastic kiddie pool up with some water and lit some mosquito-repellent candles. The inflatable pool was too hard to keep clean.

I've been knitting things as of lately. I made a Harley Quinn-colored scarf for Emily and a little pink hat for Leah. Both of which turned out pretty good for amateur attempts.

Zac and I have been trying to exercise together because looking at past entries I can tell my figure has gone from comfortable giraffe to borderline elephant. We went for a two-mile walk to McAlister's the other day and pulled the kiddos in their wagon. My legs are still sore, but the experience was delightful for the kids, aside from the heat. I'd like to get something that attaches to a bicycle so we can pull them a little easier and without as much back-straining agony.

We took the kids to the mall yesterday so I could get Leah some new shoes. Her feet are growing so fast! There were some people in the middle of the mall who were building a castle out of red clay or some other earthy substance.

Zac had an interview at Blockbuster. He really wants the job and I'm hoping he gets it.

On our way back to Mom's, we stopped in Hattiesburg to see Katie and Spencer. They're still in the hospital since Katie had some complications during birth. I think she's getting discharged in a few days.

Spencer is so cute! He looks just like Garrett, but has Katie's eyes. We brought pizza for Katie and hung out until we had to leave so I wouldn't be late for work.
