Trying to cool down!!!

So it's been pretty hot up here in Colorado the last couple of days. Now before all you southerners start judging me..we don't have any AC. The last two days it has been 80+ inside the house. It's been hot all day long and it doesn't cool down in the house until about ten. Last night I didn't put pajama bottoms on Cayden because it was just too hot. But he got these new Lightning McQueen crocks at the store yesterday for his birthday (Thanks Great Grandma and Grandpa Allen). He did not want to go down to sleep with out them. So I let him put them on. Well once it got dark I went in a opened his window. This is what I found:

Julie Visiting

Well, last weekend Julie, my sister, came up from New Mexico and visited us. She brought along her two youngest, Connor and Becky. We had a lot of fun. We just hung out on Friday. We went to the park, and to Mcdonalds. We had a crazy day on Saturday. We woke up and packed a lunch then went to the zoo. We had a lot of fun. They wanted to see everything which was okay because I haven't ever seen everything. I think my favorite animal was one of the monkeys. It was high up in it's cage just swinging away. Going from one side to the other. It was fun to watch how gracefully they swing. It looks so effortless! Anyway, we had lunch there and were just slightly attached by the geese. But we had a good time. That afternoon/evening Scott watched all the kids for us while Julie and I went out and had some fun. We initially were going to go to the mall but we had had so much fun in Joann's the previous day with all the kids, or just Cayden, causing havoc we decided to go there alone. Then we went to the beauty college and got pedicures. Then we went out to dinner. It was a lot of fun. We could have been out all night long. But children were calling so we went home and relaxed and played Rock band the rest of the evening. Sadly they had to leave the next morning. But it was a lot of fun having them over. Here are a few pics.

Happy Birthday Cayden....yesterday

Yesterday was Cayden's Birthday. We celebrated on Saturday with the fam. Grandma and Grandpa took us out to an amusement park for toddlers. We thought that he would love all the little rides. Especially the little train. But the one toy that caught his eye guessed it the SLIDE! We could have gone to a park!! But he went up and down and up and down that slide like crazy. He also enjoyed the set of stairs and surprisingly the bounce house. I didn't think he'd like it at all but wow he loved jumping and falling and flipping all over the place. It got some engery out. He really enjoyed himself.

Cayden has a sock fetish. For a long time we had one sock that was a CARS sock. We lost the other one. But he wore that sock everyday for about six days straight. We would put him in clean socks and he would rip one off and hand us the CARS sock. I even tried hiding the sock from him. But he would always find it. So for his birthday Grandma gave him seven pairs of cars and sesame street socks. Now he wears them when he goes to bed...actually all the time. He doesn't ever want to be without his socks. He also got lots of Cars cars a spirally thingy that races cars. He got a vacume some thomas the train stuff, and he got a really cool sand box thingy that you can play with standing up. All in all he really enjoyed the day.

Alittle bit about Cayden. Boy is he active. He's always on the move. Lately we've been able to stop him to give us loves but then he's off again. If he could do anything it would be play outside. He'd stay outside forever if you let him. He loves hotwheels and since we took his paci away he sucks on those. He's a very independant little boy. He no longer wants ANY help going up and down the stairs. If I attemp to be will have non of it. He's talking some. He more just makes up hand movements with sound but it's coming along. All in all he's a pretty happy boy
