We are trying to get back to a routine and this is what one of our "normal" days looks like. 
This morning I took Judah to the library and let him pick out some books. I ended up finding some really cute vintage children's records and am planning on hosting a toddler dance party at our home soon. 

This is only half of the records I brought home from the library sale. 

It was really hot outside, in the 90's so instead of taking Judah on a run I filled up the water table in our backyard and let him play for awhile. He tried to eat some dirt. 

He is starting to figure out the water table. Normally he just dumps buckets of water on himself. Does anyone else have a water table? Have you noticed the toys get kind of slimy? I feel like I am constantly cleaning off Judah's toys outside. 

We went inside and Judah went down for a nap. I picked up the house, crochet and started dinner. Scott came home and we took Judah to the pool for an hour. Scott was teaching Judah how to surf and we took him to the "big pool" and let him play water basketball. Judah now says "basketball".

Then Scott let me go on a solo 3 mile run around the neighborhood. It was still 90+ degrees outside, but it felt good blasting my music and running by myself. 

Tomorrow is supposed to be another scorcher, not sure what our plans our but we are going to try to stay inside as much as possible.

  8. Ugh, the heat.... we stayed inside all day today. We don't have a water table, but we need something! I usually drive him to his grandparents' house to play in their pool, or to the splash pad down the road. We went to the splash pad last night, and my by had a blast... but I melted.
