We have had some insanely crazy weather in Iowa this summer. Really...that is not any different than any other time here but the amount of rain and the high degree of heat is getting pretty darn bad. It has been over 100 degree heat index far more days than any summer should have. This morning at work it went from sunny skies to wall clouds in 3 minutes. Crazy I tell ya.

Today we headed down to small town, southern Iowa for Ben's birthday party! Ben is my best friend Jodi's little guy and he is just 6 weeks younger than Charlotte. His birthday was in June but since they are in Kentucky right now for Nathan's job they had his party when they were able to come home.
We had such a great time! We got a bit detoured on the way there but eventually made it. All the kids were looking so cool with their hats on!
The kids played, ran and had an all around great ttime. Most of us parents did too and it was SO good to spend time with Jodi!!
A bunch of us that were in her wedding were back, and almost all of us were now toting little ones. We got a picture of everyone for fun. Man how time flies.

These pictures were on a different sd card than usual so I missed posting about this day earlier, these are from June 5th. It was seriously such a fun Saturday afternoon. First we got all cute with some pigtails before running some errands.
When we got back we were picking up the garage and putting stuff away when it started to rain. It was a WARM summer rain, so we decided to play in it!!
All three of us soaking wet and having fun.
Charlotte adored it and was cute as a button sopping wet.
When we came in we made her ravioli for dinner. We figured since she needed a bath anyways we would let her have at it and boy did she!
Just another fun afternoon at the Davis house!

This was, by far, Charlotte's funniest purse yet. She took her overalls out of the laundry pile and would put them over her shoulder. She would stop to fill up her 'purse', then stand up and everything would fall through of course. So she would bend down again, put it all back in....over and over...
Seriously cracks me up...

On our way back from visiting and swimming with Heather and family Charlotte was being quite restless and grumpy. Just acting very unusual for her. My throat started burning and hurt so badly. Before you know it we were both sick. Monday we headed to the doctor and Charlotte had a bulbous ear infection and I had throat infection. 2 antibiotics and some rest later and we pulled through. Even sick Charlotte could play with the best of them.

It was one place to another this past weekend (July 10th/11th). Saturday morning we headed down to the farmers market and then we spent the afternoon at a birthday party. Dan and Sara's little girl Grace turned 3! Charlotte had an absolute blast. They had the pool in the back yard, water balloons, and of course just running around and meeting new people.
Sunday we headed to Omaha for the day. My big cousin Heather, her husband Marc and their 2 kids were in town and asked if we could spend some time together. We considered going to the zo but the weather was looking iffy so we went swimming at Heather's Dad and his wife's home. She is a swim teacher and they have a big indoor pool. We all had a great time and loved getting to spend some time together. We got back to my dad's place just in time for dinner and headed out late that night.
