We Survived the Heat

Whew, that was one HECK of a heat wave! Temps 100+ without nighttime cool-offs. Made for a very hot house and very hot people. Today is only supposed to get up to about 94, which actually sounds awesome. Jake did very well in the heat (probably due in part to becoming a nudist for the heat wave).
We had lots of popsicles.
Tried not to wear much clothing. I also took prefolds and got them wet then stuck them in the freezer and used those to cool down. Now I can say that I've experienced being very pregnant in the heat of the summertime.
Sweated a lot (notice that glistening chest!)
Mike begged me to shave his hair off since it was so thick and retaining so much heat. So I did, but left a bit in the front so it wouldn't look completely like a crew cut. He looks a bit like a rock star instead with this tuft of hair sticking up in the front. By the way, Jake took this picture!
Other things we did: splashed around in the kiddie pool in the afternoon once the shade was on it; made lentil salad, potato salad, and pasta salad, respectively, each morning so it was in the fridge and ready for dinner later on; watched a lot of movies with the fan blowing on us in order to take our minds off the heat; drank a lot of water; expressed gratitude for the window air conditioning unit in the bedroom each night and forced the cats to sleep in there with us all night; and kept reminding ourselves that it would soon be over. Wild.

You have such a beautiful family! When you mentioned shaving your husband I thought you meant his chest! I was expecting the next photo to be a bare chested man. lol
