Even though it was 100 degrees outside we thought it would be fun to spend some time at the park. He went on the swings for the first time, and also went down the slide with daddy. Jacob seems to really like the fresh air. Even though it was hot we still had a lot of fun.

A lot has happened since my last post. Jacob is almost 7 months and has started to crawl and explore everything he sees. He also has learned how to pull himself up and stand! I can't believe how big he's getting. We also went and visited Grandma and Grandpa Davis in San Diego and spent some time at the beach. Jacob enjoyed playing in the ocean this time. The last few times we put him in the water he just screamed. This time we sat in the sand where the water was very shallow. He seemed to really enjoy that...even though mommy and daddy got bit by a sand crab :)

While we were at the beach, Matt and I went kayaking. We saw leopard sharks and girabaldis (pretty orange fish) from the kayak. We figured that wasn't close enough, so we grabbed some snorkeling gear and swam with the sharks :O Don't worry, Matt protected me as I jumped on his back. We also saw lobsters and a few big sting rays. It was amazing to see all the animal life in such shallow water!

Before we knew it we had to return to the scorching desert. A few nights ago, we found a scorpion in our apartment. Matt had to save Jacob and me. I sat on the bathroom sink while Jacob screamed until Matt killed it. I made him search the apartment for more, but we haven't found one yet.
