In an attempt to find cool, low energy projects for us to do, yesterday #3 and I went off to the mall for a few hours of air conditioning, a bit of shopping, and a visit to the Lego store - this was daddy's idea. I should mention that one of my least favorite places to visit is the mall - especially an indoor mall. We have some really nice outdoor malls here in Seattle, and those aren't all that bad, but the indoor mall is someplace I don't often go. Yesterday however, with the thought of spending some time in a relatively cool place, it was simply too inviting to avoid...
We had fun picking out projects for us to build, and when we came home, we went down into the "dorm room" - the bottom floor of the house which is # 1 & 2's room. While it has a full wall of west-facing windows, the back half of it is underground, thus, it is definitely the coolest room we have. We sat on the floor for a few hours, building and playing. It was actually quite pleasant, until you went upstairs and realized just how warm it actually was!
I have #4 in minimal clothing these days, in an attempt to keep him as cool as possible.
Today #3 and I are off to the lake with my friend Melaine of My Sweet Savannah. I hope to take lots of photos to share~
