It’s been pretty hot here lately. Somewhere around 90 degrees every day…and 98 degrees in our house!
Yup, our air conditioner took a big ole crap! Why do these things break when they are needed the most?
And on top of that Ace came down with strep throat. When he’s feeling good…he is lying around. When he is feeling bad, he needs to be held.
I can barely stand the heat just sitting here by myself, let alone holding a 100 degree, crying, 25 lb boy!
So, we’ve been staying at Grandma’s house (which has AC) until the parts for our AC unit come in and I have time to install them. 😀
It really does take a village sometimes… 😀
Well, that crazy blue elephant has returned again this summer…reekin’ havoc upon Ace in his very own backyard.
That damned thing comes out every time it gets warm and teases him with a small shower of cool water, just big enough for a three foot tall person to run through and cool down on a hot summer day.
And then once he gets close enough to enjoy the small shower… WHASHOOSH! The elephant explodes with a massive flood of freezing cold water that pours down on him…sending him into shock and he runs for his life… 😀
He reaches safety just in time to see the monsoon turn once again into a small pleasant shower.
And then he does it again…and again…and again…
But after a while he starts to catch on…
…and he realize that there is a certain someone ( with a camera ) that is enjoying this a little too much. This certain someone turns a knob connected to the hose every time the monsoon rains down on him.
He is getting smarter…wiser…more experienced. It looks like that certain someone will have to step up their game in order to keep fooling this toddler. 😀
We spent the weekend in my home town at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Riding the 4-Wheeler, lying by the pool, going swimming, and doing a little bit of partying on Saturday night.
Ace, however spent the weekend sharpening his speech skills and getting lessons from some of the best out there… 😀
Aunt Amber and Aunt Amy taught him some silly Frog song and he spent the weekend running around saying “mmmmm-eckkkkk mmmmm-eckkkkk mmmmm-eckkkkk-eckkkkk “. Don’t ask me… 😀
Aunt Amy also thought it would be just darling for him to start his flirt training. She successfully got him to say “Hey Gurrrl!” to a few of his potential future mates. You better watch out girls! 😀
Grandpa pulled in the driveway in his old truck, but Ace could not see him. Ace looked to the sky and said “Hewicoptur!”. I think he is indirectly telling you it is time for a new muffler Gramps. 😀
And last but not least, Ace was walking barefoot across the patio when someone noticed he was not putting weight on the heel of his foot. Everyone thought he may have stepped on something sharp. So, I picked up his foot and brushed off a bunch of dirt and rocks. I announced to the peanut gallery that it was just some “Rocks and Shit”. And of course, Ace proceeded to copy my excellent English lingo and announce by himself that it was just a bunch of “Rocks and Shit!”, “Rocks and Shit!”, “Rocks and Shit!”
Can’t Bose make some curse word canceling headphones? I mean hell they make the noise canceling ones! 😀
