Summer is Here

Well, it has finally gotten nice and hot here in Tulsa. We were thankful for every day in June that wasn't close to 100, but unfortunately those days are over. Starting Sunday it has been or will be over 100 for the rest of the week. Ugh! Luckily, we have some fun stuff going on to keep our minds off the temps and keep busy. Monday, Cole and I drove over to Fayetteville to see Stacy! The NW Arkansas tournament that's usually in September is this coming weekend in June this year. She had Monday free and we took advantage and spent the day with her. We left shortly after Cole woke up and had breakfast. It's about an hour and 45 minutes to Rogers, AR where she's staying and playing in the tournament. We just hung out and played with Cole for awhile once we got there. It had been since Christmas since she had seen him! Crazy! Then we had lunch at Chick-fil-a. Cole hadn't been there before! He got a nuggets kids meal with an applesauce, so he was in heaven. Stacy introduced him to ketchup! Cole kept handing her pieces of chicken to dip in the sauce before he ate them.
Stacy got out of Chick-fil-a with only 2 people coming up to her and congratulating or wishing her luck this weekend. :) After lunch, we did a couple of quick errands for Stacy and headed back to the course so she could register and pick up tickets for us for the weekend. Cole was hamming it up for all her friends and loved being the center of attention! The funniest thing was random people who work/volunteer for the tournament remembered Cole from last year. They would say "he's gotten so big", "I remember this little guy", etc. He's famous around there too now! We ended up staying until about 3:00 and decided it was time to go and let Cole nap in the car on the drive home. We will be heading back there on Friday morning with my parents to watch the tournament for the weekend.
With it being so hot, pretty much the only thing you can do outside in the afternoon is go to the pool! Cole and I did just that yesterday afternoon. We spent about and hour playing in the water. He seemed to like the big pool more where I was holding him and moving around rather than standing in the baby pool. He had a little friend who was sharing her toys with him too. We are so glad we have a pool close by that we can go to for a few hours and cool off!
