Hot-Lanta

We spent the past week in Atlanta, also known as Hot-Lanta because it was soooooo HOT. According to the local Atlantans, this weather was unseasonably warm, and felt more like August rather than June. Nevertheless, we made the best of the weather, and stayed inside alot of the time. We got to spend some really great time with the Tuley family. Although I have very few pictures of the family with Jacob, I do have pictures of some of the things we did while we were there. Hope you enjoy the many pics!
Here's Gramma Tuley and Jacob riding a train in the mall. Jacob wasn't too sure about leaving Mom, but he did really good and even got an extra ticket for another ride later. What a fun ride!
Here's a video of Jacob and Gramma riding the train. Fun!

We also rode the Carosel that is in the food court of the mall. Here's Gramma holding on tight so Jacob wouldn't fall.

After we rode the carosel, we went to the Build-a-Bear Workshop and made a Puppy come to life. Jacob stepped on the lever to add the stuffing, gave his puppy an air bath, and picked out a leash for his new puppy. Jacob even got to put the "heart" into his puppy. Here's a picture of that!

Here's Jacob and Gramma picking up the puppy from the floor. Jacob thought he would see if the puppy could walk himself. :)
On Thursday we met with Graham and Ashley Scobey of Scobey Photography to take some pictures of Jacob and me for a present for Jeff for Father's Day. After the photoshoot, we decided to let Jacob play in the fountain. What a FUN time for Jacob. By the time I finished taking pictures he was SOAKED!!! See how the water was kicked so hard that his shirt was splashed all the way to his chest! Ha!

Wonder what he's thinking????

Here's Jacob enjoying a popsicle!

Um...yummy!!!!!

Like I said, it was SOOOOO hot outside, that we decided a nice dip in the baby pool would cool us both off. Jacob had a great time throwing the ball down into the water and making a big splash. I think what he liked more was me making a noise everytime. He loves loud noises.

Jacob got a Big Wheel and we decided to use the box for a makeshift tunnel. After a few tries, he decided that he liked climbing through the "tunnel" to get to the other side. Here's a picture that Gramma got of Jacob as he was climbing through to her!

On Friday morning Jacob had a "play date" with his friend Hudson. Hudson is a few months older than Jacob and walking and climbing everywhere. We think they had fun playing together, and think they'll be good friends!

The boys and their mamas. Hudson was so busy playing in the water. He did a great job showing Jacob how to really make a splash!

This is how they played most of the day...they interacted more with the toys than with each other. But, that may change the next time they have a play date....

Gramma and Chappy got Jacob his very own chair to have in the living room. What a Big Boy!

Here's Jacob watching his FAVORITE show, Super Why, in his chair. He is really Loungin' now!

Take a look at this picture! He's the poster child for "Couch Potatoes!" I promise, this is the only TV show we ever watch during the day!!!!

I'll leave you with this video of Jacob. He had quite a good time climbing the stairs at Gramma and Chappy's house. He would take off from the living room or kitchen and you knew exactly where he was heading....for these stairs. He got really good at climbing!!!!

Thanks for checking in with us. If you read this entire post, either you're way too dedicated, you love Jacob a ton, or you have nothing better to do with your time. Ha! Either way, hope it was enjoyable! Have a blessed day!

  1. I love the "couch potato Jacob", but I LOVE the last second of the stair climbing video where he decides to let the world know he's only a reach away from using the handrail. GO JACOB!!!!!
