Summer Fun

After the hair posts I apparently didn't have much else to say!

A few fun days have happened since then. Canada Day brought some fun down at Fort Calgary.

Then the Stampede started, but Zoey slept through her first visit so we're going back tomorrow! I can't wait to see her around all the animals!

We also had some fun at Sandy Beach (a little park with a tiny, rocky beach... the name is a little deceiving) and Riley Park (a wading pool).

Also, Zoey started crawling and sitting up by herself! How exciting!  She's doing mostly the army crawl but every once in a while she pops up on all fours and crawls across the floor.

She's on the verge of getting her two front teeth and that combined with the heat wave has made things a little interesting around here in the evenings. (And by interesting I mean terrible.)  I HATE the heat. It definitely brings out the worst in me  so I'm working hard to keep my cool (pardon the pun) when Zoey freaks out at night. Heat, teething, no Matt, cranky me... It could be the perfect storm.  BUT, I'm doing my best and that's as good as it can get!

How do you deal with the heat?

As you know, my prime way of dealing with the heat is whining. Unfortunately, it isn't very effective. Freezing damp washcloths is a nice way to cool off if you can't sleep...

Someone actually said to me that they put their top sheet in the freezer while they are getting ready for bed. By the time they are done its cold and then when they crawl into bed it cools them off enough to sleep

What a cute Canadian girl!!

Zoey looks adorable in her little bathing suits! We went to Riley park a couple weeks ago and it was a blast! I as so afraid that A would get a sunburn that we didn't stay in the water very much.

We often bring cold packs to bed if it's too hot.
