Were You Right?!!

We found out today that we are having a GIRL. This puts us at even numbers for all. Well, Toro (cat) is a male, but technically an it so I didn't count him as swaying our numbers! When the ultra sound began, she started at the head and worked her way down. T Jay kept bouncing up and down and asking when she was going to tell us what we were having! When they found out, they jumped up and down, clapped and giggled. T Jay even said, "Now we can name it Lisa!" We're not naming her Lisa, I don't know where he has even heard that name. I told him he could put in requests, but Mama gets to pick! He also said, "I guess Jesus just wanted things to be even." I guess so!

The Hottest Pumpkin Patch EVER!

I bet you are wondering how a pumpkin patch can be hot, right? Well, in our nice little section on the globe it was 85 degrees on Saturday, at least that is what the thermometer said. I think it was lying. I think it was more like 90 degrees, or maybe higher. I kept having to go and stand in the shade while the kids chose their pumpkins. I know, I'm a wimp. If we were there 20 minutes, I would be surprised! We are really missing fall right now! We are trying to focus on the good things about living in a place with perpetual summer! Suggestions anyone?
T Jay loved this little wheel barrow. Matthew kept trying to walk off with it and T Jay didn't understand why he had to carry all of the pumpkins in there and not just his own.

Matthew rearranged about 1/8 of the little pumpkin patch in the 20 minutes we were there. He kept bringing us pumpkin after pumpkin. We kept the first one and set the rest down where ever we were. Luckily, they didn't seem to have them organized any certain way.
With our pumpkins chosen, we ran for the car and blasted the A/C! Ahhh, nothing like a Florida Fall, I mean the summer that will never end!
On a positive note, yesterday was pretty nice. We were even able to stop and play at the park after getting T Jay from school. Usually we walk home as quickly as possible to get out of the heat! We even rode bikes outside! My brother says we should be used to the weather in 2 years, I think I can, I think I can...
