Saturday was also another hot day for us. Alan was feeling it, Anna was feeling it, and I was feeling it. It was really more muggy than hot though, and I think that's what made it unbearable for everyone. We didn't end up going to Carly's birthday party for that reason but I texted my mom so we could figure out some way to keep the boys (and Anna) cool.

|Splashing with it lol!|

|I love the water in this one! So cool!|
The pool was also pretty packed, mostly with rowdy older children. So I stayed real close to Alan. He had fun playing with his boat and his Finn McMissile car but wouldn't sit down at first. I convinced him he would be okay, and he finally did. But just as we were beginning to have fun, some rowdy girls came over and started picking on my son. They tried to take his toys from him and kept splashing him in the face. These kids were way older too, and it looked like they didn't have any supervision. So after asking them to stop as nicely as I could (It was honestly hard for me because I wanted to hit them, I get very worked up when big kids pick on little kids because its not fair) several times, I finally had to raise my voice at them. I told them they were being very rude and needed to leave us alone and go find their parents. I almost made one of them cry but they were so mean! Wow I haven't ever experienced that before!
Angry at all the other people in the park lol, I told Alan and the boys it was time to go to the playground. Thankfully, Anna and Grandma Melanie were fine. Grandma said that her and Anna just snuggled and enjoyed each other's company. :) We dressed and I had Aunt April and Grandma Melanie take them so that I could feed Anna. The boys played at the playground for half hour and had a much better time there, Grandma said. Makes me happy that they did! :D
Over the weekend, this blog broke 29,000 page views! I know a lot of it has to do with Miss Anna's arrival, but I am so blessed to have all of you wonderful readers! Thanks again, you are all great!
Glad we all got the chance to get out and get cool! Hope that we can do that more often now that Anna is a week old!
