This kind of heat when pregnant is no joke, man. It's no joke when you aren't pregnant, either (so I'm told). This weekend was no exception. Record high temps. Humidity so thick you could cut it with a knife. Back sweat. Boob sweat. I think my pregnant belly was sweating. I sported it all. Oh so classy.
But? It was fun. And well worth it. On Saturday we had a chill morning at home. You read about my morning with Eme, but after that was lots of inside playing with Daddy, book-reading, soccer playing-you name it, until naptime.
Since we stayed in all morning away from the heat & humidity, we decided to venture out with some of my family to a local street fair, have dinner and watch the bike races.
Despite the heat, despite trying to keep my kid (and myself) from getting dehydrated, despite watching a wing-eating-contest that kind of made me feel nauseas, and despite having to rush out of there a bit early because crazy thunderstorms were swooping in? It was great. And as embarrassing as it is to be 36+ weeks pregnant and sporting back sweat around town? It was still worth it, I'd say.
I mean, I had a cupcake from Dia Doce, winner of Cupcake Wars (and I couldn't even wait to take a bite...as you can see.) Leave me alone, I'm very pregnant. ;)
There was frisbee playing....
I bet you can guess where THIS toss by Em went...?
Hand-holding & "Will this be the last family photo of 3?"-taking (see also: doubtful!).
Oh, remember that wing-eating contest? Well, Susan's boyfriend, Jeff was the winner.
Her 2nd face painting of her life, and the first one was the day before at the fair. Both of the face paintings were awful--I used to face paint a little in my day. But? We cheered and told her how awesome they were both times and she loved them. Two year olds are easy to please, dude.
I want to look like my mom when I'm her age. Just saying.
Emeline adores Moses. He's like family to us. If you want to know the story of Moses, you can read all about him where my sister posted his story here.
Very pregnant sister....very skinny sister. I'll forgive her for being so gosh darn cute.
All in all?
These numbered weekends before becoming a family of four? They're pretty sweet. Back sweat, boob sweat and all.
