Our air-conditioning has suddenly decided to go on strike and it's a million degrees in our house right now. Ok, so a million might be a slight exaggeration. But it's at least eight hundred thousand degrees in here. :)

So right now I'm hiding out in the basement. We're all going to sleep down here tonight and hopefully we can figure out what's up with the air conditioning tomorrow so we don't melt.

Josh and Matthew are in the playroom next to me right now getting ready for bed. As I was typing just now I heard Josh tell Matthew that he has reached maximum hotitude, lol. Me too. It's HOT in here!!

This weekend was pretty fun, my mom and stepdad were here for a couple of days. Yesterday we all went to a local community festival and everyone hung out there while I volunteered for a few hours at the booth that our taekwondo school set up at at the festival. I helped pass out fliers and told everyone how much we love taekwondo! I had a good time volunteering, I love hanging out with the our taekwondo friends.

My mom and stepdad went home this morning and we've had a pretty quiet day around here. This afternoon we decided to watch a movie and decided on Back To The Future. The boys have never seen it before and the Back To The Future trilogy are three of Shawn and my favorite childhood movies, so we've been waiting for them to be old enough to watch it.

As they've gotten older it's been so fun to watch all of our favorite childhood movies with them. Movies like The Goonies, Karate Kid, Labyrinth...I've loved watching them with my kids. Shawn was especially excited when he decided that they were old enough to watch Star Wars!

Anyway, Josh loved Back To The Future so much that he decided he wanted to watch part two and three, so we ended up watching the whole trilogy this evening!

Did you realize that when they go into the future in the second movie they go to the year 2015?! That made me feel really really old today! I was about Josh's age when that movie came out and I used to love watching the futuristic scenes in that movie when I was a kid. The movie doesn't have the same fascination for kids these days because that "future" is only five years from now! Josh thought the flying cars and futuristic things were really funny. Somehow I don't think we're going to be flying around town in our cars five years from now. :)

Watching movies from my childhood always makes me really nostalgic for the 80's. If I could raise my kids in any decade I think it would be the 80's. Ah, the days of Aquanet and shoulder pads. Good times. :)

Ok, I'm going to bed now and try not to melt before morning. Hopefully whatever is wrong with the air conditioning will be easy to fix and we will be back in our own beds tomorrow!
