To the Manor!
Yet, as it turned out, the heat wave wasn't all that bad (at least not if you are from NC where a typical day in August is upper 90s with high humidity). We played outside a bit with the balloons and the water toy. But M really wanted to play with his new NERF gun. So inside we went.
We ended the day by going to a pool with my cousin, his wive and their two kids. The water in the pool was warm as milk; there was a dog there (it's a private pool); and snacks. So we stayed for almost 3 hours and came back totally exhausted.
Then today we went to Phillipsburg Manor. Sure, we've been to it before, last year. But honestly, I love the place! There's always so much to see and learn! So Grandma, M and myself drove across the Tappan Zee Bridge to the Sleepy Hollow (yep, THAT Sleepy Hollow) early in the morning.
And after all this excitement - the manor and more plaster casts - we went to IKEA. Turns out, it was a good day to go because they had a cartoonist there (free, he didn't even take tips) and he drew M and myself. Don't we look awesome?!
