The mad tour continues… water parks, cousins, friends, wii, sprinklers, pools, tubing down the chatahoochee…anything to beat this 100+ degree heat here in Atlanta. I do not remember in the 21 years I lived here ever having this kind of heat. But maybe my memory is selective...
|Goofy kids...fun with cousins.|
In the meantime, we’re going to continue keeping busy and head to VA later this week to visit all of our friends up there (more girl time!!). For those that don’t know, Virginia is actually our “home” as adults. Andy and I met there, got married there, bought our first house there and had our child there. I cried when we sold our house and left my two best friends. I had some fantastic friends at work there as well. This is the first time I’m visiting for any length of time and I’m getting more and more excited by the day.
On a more somber note...Jake got a goldfish and Aunt Caroline said he could keep it at her house. Well, Goldie didn't last very long and I've spent the better part of this morning consoling one very upset six year old. He hasn't been this upset since his hermit crab died on the boat. He's normally so stoic when it comes to the lifecycle of animals...strictly food chain type conversations. But this little bug eyed goldfish made quite the impression. These little people never cease to amaze me.
A few strawberries and donuts later and now he's off to play...ah, the resiliency. Here's some pictures documenting the madness he calls play... Enjoy!
|It's no surprise Jake's favorite part of the water park was the wave pool!|
|Who knows what they were doing...|

|Jake and this random kid built the pyramid...then they turn the knob|
and see if it would withstand an earthquake.

surprised Jake. But he says he did make one "surrender."
