Thats what Brothers are for!

Yesterday, we continued the heat wave. I was getting such cabin fever I really thought I was going to loose it. So we decided that it was early enough in the day to take a walk in the forest across the street from our house. There is a path that goes through the woods and ends at the campus. After a few mins Chris thought it would be fun if I went and got the car and met them at the other end. Then we wouldn't (in theory) have to walk as far. I went back and got the car and threw some water in sippy cups. As an hour went by I drove back and forth from the end of the trail to our house THREE times. I started freaking out that all my boys were passed out from the now 101 degree heat. Finally after about an hour and 15 mins. I decided to go get my shoes on and run in after them. Then Christopher emerged from the trail with Liam zonked in the front pack and Sammy happily perched on his shoulders. Needless to say Chris was DRENCHED! It turned out to be about a 3 mile hike. Sam kept telling me he saw a bear! After church we stripped the boys down and let them hang out in their diapers trying to beat the heat. They climbed in the bucket we store our big balls in and played around for a while. Sam would hop in and out saying "boo!" to Liam who genuinely thinks his brother is THE funniest person on the planet. Then we let Sam push Liam on the new Thomas Tricycle the video is pretty funny. More and more each day I am SOOOO glad we had these two so close!

How cute! I can't wait till Lucy and Reese are buds. Hope you guys are surviving the heat! We had some crazy hot weather for a couple days, but it's back down for now and we're hoping it stays that way!!! I don't know how much cooler it would be here in Cleveland, but we'd love it if you could make out here before summer ends!!
