Beating the Heat

We haven't really done a whole lot lately. Just hanging out at home mostly. Matthew's summer term of classes is coming to an end and he is taking finals this week. It's just been so hot that we avoid going outside as much as we can.  Also I now have to plan around 2 different nap schedule so we are home bound a lot. This means I have had to become a more fun, creative mom at home which is hard to do. But here are some of the things we have been up to lately.

Playing with beans and construction trucks (don't mind the mismatched pjs)

 Baking. Lots of baking. Austin loves to help and he really does a good job.

 One day, I put Kensley in her bed for just a minute to go do something. I was gone about one minute and came back to find both kids in the crib! Austin had dragged the piano bench over and climbed in.

I have been cleaning out some things and Austin found some pink gloves.  He wanted to wear them and play doctor.

I took this picture from my back porch. Check out the haboob.  Yes, that is a real word.  We get these massive dust storms during the summer months that roll through and I guess that is the official name for them.  They are pretty intense!
Here is another one from last summer that we saw coming towards us. Scary huh!

 We visited the new temple site for the Phoenix Temple.  It is about 10 minutes from where we live. Too bad that we will have moved away by the time it is suppose to be finished. 

 Who knew that Austin would be completely entertained for 1 1/2 hours with a sink full of water! Completely soaked, but thoroughly entertained.
