Getting Some Sun

But not too much sun, which is very easily done. Believe it or not, I feel like I will come back to visit the states with less of a tan than I came to Borneo with. 

When by myself at home, getting outside takes more planning and thought. Here are a few reasons...

It is hot out.
Like, so hot. My hair has been a frizzy poof or in a bun off my neck and face almost every day since we've been here.  I was outside with the babies for 10-15 minutes and Eli got a little sun burn on his sweet nose and cheeks. When Dan gets home from work (CrossFit) I rarely give his drenched, sweaty self a hug.

We have twins.
Amazing, beautiful, adorable, lovely twins. Who take a lot of forethought when making the decision to go out of the apartment. Diaper bag, diaper bag contents, strollers, how I will actually get both babies down the stairs and into the car/stroller, nap schedules, eating schedules, etc. 

It is the rainy season.
It rains at least once a day now. So, even if I get the twins all ready to go, by the time they're ready it could be raining cats and dogs. And it rains HARD - thunder, lightning, the whole show. 

I've been better about getting them outside at least a little bit. Here are a few pictures of the babies during our walk around the apartment building and outside in the weird, empty, ceilingless room we have.

  1. You may be hot, but those are some cute kids in the sunglasses!
    We have those same clouds here! Amazing.
