I won't lie. It's depressing when our summer temperatures are colder than Phoenix's winter temperatures. I thought if we could just get through the long cold winter then we would be rewarded greatly with a long hot summer. We do have some beautiful days that just feel my soul with sunshine, but it seems like for every warm day we get about 3 days of cold. Right now I have my electric blanket on and that's just messed up. But it takes the rain to appreciate the sun and I was so grateful that we were graced with its presence on our first official day of summer break. It was obvious where you could find us. Flying kites, digging in the sand, chasing beach balls, collecting shells and living on beach time without a care in the world. Kylie said days like these are a dream come true and I would have to agree.
Kylie hanging out with her new friend. As you can see, she's thrilled. The beach was virtually empty and this lady decided to plop her beach towel down no less than two feet away from us. Usually people see a mom and four crazy kids and head in the complete opposite direction, so this kind of had me baffled. She would just shake off any sand Ryder happened to throw her way and continue with her sun bathing.
