Let me give you a closeup of that sweaty face...
Given that the inside temperature of our house was 93 degrees (aside from the master bedroom where we had the A/C unit blowing cool air), Preston and I decided to venture out into bigger air-conditioned areas...like grocery stores.
While at said grocery store, Preston (being on the ball-kick that he's been on) pointed at balloons and called them balls. He pointed at signs and said "Ball", people's items in thier cart were "ball", and the cantelope that I was just about to purchase that he picked up and threw on the ground he declared that it was too, a "ball".
In Preston's short life, we have never actually purchased him any toys.
We've had kind friends who have given us toys that thier children no longer use, like little race cars, stuffed animals, fire trucks, and...yes balls. Because of this generosity, we have a huge green bin full of toys that Preston digs into every day and has fun with. He also has fun with boxes, tupperwares, water bottles, books, etc.
However, on our grocery store trip, I decided it was time I finally broke down and bought our son his first toy from Mommy and Daddy.
That ball that you see in the photos above and below, was from Albertsons. $1.50 worth of hours of joy and giggles.
This was us last evening, finally deciding to get out of the house and hit the beach. We went to Lake Sammamish State Park and enjoyed the breeze coming off of the water. The water temperature itself was like a swimming pool.
