What to Do In A Heatwave!

What do you do when there is a heatwave and the temperature soars to 108? (BTW this is an all time record for Corvallis Oregon!) Well, you head for Grandma's because she has air conditioning!! EVERYONE came (except Josh, who must endure the heat in Alma, AR right now!). Here are some of the fun things we did to pass the time:
We picked, snapped and canned some beans from our garden. Of course Kayden and Katarina liked to eat them first!!

We played LOTS of Wii!!! How convenient that Wii Resort came out at the beginning of the heatwave!! Jackie and Jayme show off their style for archery.

Jessica and Jackie demonstrate Team Canoe racing. We laughed sooo hard!!

Even Grandma and Grandpa got in on the action! Lots and Lots of Laughs!!
We played in the pool and Mommies got wet.

We danced to old Sesame Street videos and did the "Batty, Batty, Batty, Bat!" dance.

We played with all the toys at Grandma's, like the rocking horse that can hold two people at once, if you are cute cousins. Grandma's chair is lots of fun.

We visited the Fire Station with Grandpa and got to see the BIG Fire Engines!

At the end of the week, the heatwave ended and it was time to go. According to Kayden it was time to "Lolly, golly, go Bapa's caa." (Translation: Let's go, let's go, let's go, Grandma's car!)
