Z3 usually wakes after I’ve been up for awhile. It means I can get a few simple things done before it gets too hot. He as usual did not want to eat first thing and so we sat together while he watched a few cartoons. After he and my spouse had breakfast we went to do a few errands. One Z3 was looking forward to was to try and find a DVD of his choosing.
We went to Target and perused the entire store stalling for time. We did not want to get to lunch too early. There was nothing that appealed to Z3 so instead he picked out a LEGO car that struck his fancy. He was super excited to have an activity to complete with his grandpa. By the time we left Target to go for taco Tuesday the weather had peaked at over 103 degrees. It was absolutely miserable outside.
The humid hot weather must have effected everyone’s appetite because the place was not as packed as usual. We actually found a table after ordering and obviously no one was eating outside. Z3 was happy with his quesadilla and chips. He asked if his donut after could be taken home for later, which of course made sense.
We decided to head home after lunch and skip the rest of the errands. It was too hot to be getting in and out of the car. When we got home Z3 built his LEGO car with my spouse. I napped while they built the car. After a short nap I got up and played Sequence with Z3 while my spouse napped. Then Z3 and I went out and played in the kiddie pool. It was refreshing especially compared to the temperatures outside. As soon as we came in Z3 took a rinse off. He was recharged by the cool down and ready to play more board games. And so we did. 🙂 We have a routine of playing games until we are ready to drop.
After games, we had a cool dinner. There was no sense heating up the kitchen. Z3 was hungry once again and after dinner wanted an ice cream sandwich. We played more board games and then Z3 picked out a movie for us to watch. He chose STORKS. I didn’t remember seeing it before so it was a new experience for us all. We laughed out loud at many of the scenes. I am grateful for an easy routine day with Z3. He went off to bed and I came to write my blog. Despite the dramatic heat, we had a good day together. Perhaps tomorrow it will be a little cooler. One can only hope.
