Water you waiting for?

Last week, on a whim, we decided to visit City Garden, a park in downtown St. Louis. They have a giant splash pad. Ever since our swimming day at the McAllister’s the week before, Kai and Kingston have been a little afraid of the water. Kingston has now gone back to being scared of bath time. Liam loved the splash pad. Kai avoided it at all costs, and Kingston would hug his daddy tight as Don carried him through the water. We had a fun time. It was a hot day, around 91, but it felt pretty good at the park. I can’t say the same thing about our house. The AC wasn’t working properly. The Northcutts checked it out and told us the bad news–no AC all night until he could fix it the next day. He said if we used it, it could explode! Talk about intense. Let’s just say–that was a bad night. I took ambien to make it through.

After we went home and suffered in the heat for a while, Maggi invited me to go watch the sunset at the cemetery. Although, a giant cloud was right in front of the sun. We may not have seen the sunset but we enjoyed the lovely light from the golden hour. We will have to go back and watch a real sunset soon.

When we got back from the cemetery, I avoided my house until as late as I could.
The next day was another hot day. The temperature in our house climbed and climbed until it was 88! I took the kids outside to play in the pool to avoid being in our hot house. Kingston wasn’t afraid of this water but he still is afraid of bath time. Thankfully, Gary fixed the AC at 12:30 and we were able to enjoy the cool air the rest of the day.
This is what happens when a regular diaper gets wet.
