June equals summer!


I think that summer has officially arrived, considering that the temperatures are supposed to hit 30 almost every day this week. It's fun letting Soren run around in just a diaper and t-shirt. I love going to work in the morning and not having to grab a jacket, although I hate that office buildings (and the bus) are always freezing! I was at a seminar today and while the A/C was definitely on in full force, so too was the heat! It seems so inefficient when you could just open some windows.

Speaking of weather, we were preparing for a full day of rain this past Sunday for the Littlest's birthday. We were expecting about 25 people, and since our house has no air conditioning we were thinking it could get very muggy and cramped without having the backyard space to spill out on to. Luckily - the rain held off! We spent a lot of time on the deck under a wonderful new umbrella that we just got. It's amazing how much it helps in the direct sun. Even today, we were sitting outside around 6pm and it would have been unbearable without the shade from the umbrella.

I'm off to meet a few friends for a glass of wine and we may eat the last of the Birthday Cake. I made a 3 layer rainbow cake with buttercream icing. It was delicious, and the Littlest couldn't believe his luck when we put down his own little mini-cake if front of him. He was shaking his head 'no', as he ate it. Probably thinking someone (like his mean mama) was going to take it away from him at any second!
Soren was so excited to wake up from his nap and see all of the decorations. My favourite was the paper mobiles I made after seeing them on here on The Marion House Book. I think her pictures looked better than mine:)
After looking at a few 'One' t-shirts on Etsy, I decided to make my own and I was quite pleased with how it turned out. My sister-in-law asked if I was going to turn it into a yearly tradition, which I hadn't thought of, but it's not a bad idea. She was laughing saying how funny it would be to see him at age 34 with his 'Thirty Four' hand-made t-shirt...
