Staying Cool

It was 94 degrees here today ~ a record high. Jack stayed cool this afternoon by playing outside with his water mat (thank you Cousin Rose & Kimberlee!). Grace & I added lots of cool water to Jack's mat. I also added some marbles to the mat in order to increase the tactile/sensory input for Jack as he was playing. Grace added some silver glitter to the water too (she couldn't resist!). Jack loves his water mat. This was a great sensory activity for Jack and the perfect way for him to keep cool on this very hot day.

Oh, to be so full of wonder, and so pampered. It's wonderful! That must be why he looks so cool and happy and ever so handsome.

What clever additions to the water mat! Way to go Rebecca and Grace.

I am amazed that it was so hot in Limerick today. Your record high beat ours, only 92 degrees.

a great way to enjoy the day! said...

I could never-ever get enough of those sweet baby feet of Jack's. I love the water mat. It was and will be so perfect for the hot summer. I will need to get one, too, if this weather keeps up!
You can't even imagine how much I am missing Grace and Jack. I am missing Bob and tomorrow-Birthday-Girl-Rebecca!, also.
Sending tons of kisses to all 20 toes, love, Maddy

Alright Jack way to stay cool buddy! Tell Grace that I almost thought the water was "real" because of her addition of sprinkles.
Love, Uncle Adam

The beautiful Maine coast one day and his own "cool" spot the next, NO wonder Jack is a happy baby!

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
