hot and busy weekend

so we had a full weekend. Friday i got to visit with my cousin and her two girls from Chicago, they came in for the Mascoutah Homecoming Fest, it was so good to see them, the girls are getting so big! Saturday night we went to the parade and then to the picnic which was disgustingly hot, i mean no air flow whatsoever but the kids rode on rides and got candy so they didnt' care less that we all were sticky pigs! Today i got to see Amanda, Parker, Bill and Cole, Bill wanted to see the new firetruck, i didn't know they were in town so it was a pleasant surprise. After naps today i took the kids swimming around 430 and we left at 7, it wasn't too bad being in the pool, but when we got out it was so hot. this week we have a heat advisory in effect, Wed it is going to be 100 degrees, yikes. Maggie Moos offers free ice cream when the temp hits 98 degrees at Lambert Airport for 98 minutes compliments of Y98 radio station so i hope to hit Maggie Moos for some freee ice cream! Thats 98% awesome, okay 100% but 98 goes better.

This first picture is of Maddie, she is four and just a doll!

Olivia my godchild who is 6 and starting 1st grade this fall, yikes she is growing up so fast.

So glad we got to see you guys today! I should have known you didn't know we were always call when we are. Silly me. Bills grandma and cousins were there so it was a nice visit with them too.

I wish we could spend some time at the pool this week. Ours closed today and it's supposed to be near 100 all week. YIKES

Too bad we couldn't go to the parade with you guys. I hear ya when you say it's miserable. Luckily at Silver Dollar City it really shady. Lots of hills though, I really worked out my but muscles pushing the stroller up the hills!! I never though I would take the stroller in those situations, but I guess your motivation to be healthy has inspired me!! Okay, I just didn't want to go to the gym!!
