We went to Weatherford to the Peach Festival in the middle of the 100+ weather in July! It wasn't probably the "smartest" thing we have ever done...but it was fun! It was just sooo hot and crowded that it was hard to enjoy it...next year, we will definitely get there as early as possible! Clayton had peach ice cream and a little bit of a peachy smoothie! As you can see by her face, it was HOT!!!
The bounce house was too hot for her...we actually had to go get our $$ back b/c it was so hot that it burned her and she wouldn't get back on...they were putting ice on it, but it didn't help! My mother-in-law said that it was extremely hot, too!!!

There is Daddy cleaning the shirt after all of the picking and eating of the yummy blackberries!!!
Clayton got to eat the blackberry ice cream at the store...but we bought her last pint to bring home so the rest of us could try it...we all had a spoon and passed it around on the way home! It was pretty good...didn't have a lot of flavor until we found the HUGE BLACK DOG HAIR FROZEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PINT!!! Needless to say, we all wanted to throw up when we saw it...YUCK!!!! BUT...we won't ever forget the experience...good and bad!!!

Yes, Clayton comes up with some off the wall things...BUT...we were in the pool, and because Clayton LOVES to go under the water and look around ALL THE TIME, we have a little counting game that we have to do so that she will "take a break" and not continue to go in and out of the water non-stop...so we always go back to the steps SLOWLY...we sit on the step, and we count to 12. She has no problem doing this...she usually says, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7...pause...we say 8...and she says 9...10...11...TWELVE!!! And jumps back into the water...Well, the other night, she said 1,2,3,4,5,6, TUNA...What?!?! Tuna...then she started laughing...please keep in mind that Clayton has never had tuna...or even smelled it for that matter!!! Mark said, "Tuna, YUCK!" And Clayton said, "Yeah, tuna, yuck...but how 'bout Tuna Cookies?" So, we played a little "how 'bout Tuna pie, cake, etc...I have NO idea where she came up with this!!! So, if we want a little laugh...we just say, "Hey, Clayton, do you want a Tuna Cookie?"

At the beginning of June, Clayton and I went with Granna and Bittons to Chicago to see Ca-Ca! It was her b-day! Clayton got her some flip flops that have interchangeable colored straps and buttons...it was a really cute idea...but the shoe sizing was NOT anywhere close to correct! We went to the park a lot...there is a park not too far from Catherine's house that has lots of cool "hills" to run up and down....Clayton LOVED it! They, of course, were having a heat wave, so when we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo, it was too hot for even the animals to come out. We didn't last there very long!!!
