Too HOT!!!

California is known for its beautiful mild climate.  However this past weekend was not one of those days!  The temperature was 108 degrees and the humidity level was also high!  Not fun for us spoiled Californians!!  I took a picture of the temperature in my car because I thought it could not get any hotter, but it got 1 degree higher!  

Because of the "extreme" heat football was cancelled which gave us a Saturday off!  We took advantage of it!

 I tried my first "Bowl of Heaven".  It is an Acai' bowl topped with coconut, flax seed, strawberries and honey.  So unbelieveably good!!!!!

 Ryan took the kids to Devilish Donuts where they have a variety of specialty donuts.  Some of them are:  Nutella, strawberry and whip cream, peanut butter frosting with toffee, smores, pina colada, coconut cream, maple and bacon.  I could go on and on....

Then the girls and I went shopping for some family picture clothing...can you guess what on of the accent colors are??

We ended the day at T Street in San Clemente at our Ward Beach Party.  Ryan was incharge of it this year.  He did a great job cooking up those hot dogs!!  The weather at the beach was still in the 90's!  The water temperature was perfect for a hot day and the waves were great!  Trevor got in the "green room"  which has been his goal since he started surfing.  The disclaimer is that he got in the green room with a boogie board because the waves were a bit too big for a beginner surfer!  There was a great turn out of people and it was a fun time visiting with everyone!

We ended the day with this beautiful sunset!  
I would say it was a perfect day!

First Day of School 2012

Today is the big day.

  The day that the kiddos go back to school! Don't know about you, but I LOVED the Target back to school commercials...hilarious!!!

We sent Mackenzie and Madalyn off to high school first. Then we walked Trevor and Meredith to the elementary school.

 Mackenzie is a junior (11th) this year.  She is part of a club "The Link Crew" that had to wear their club shirts to school the first day thus her plain "first day of school outfit".  

Madalyn is a sophomore (10th) this year.  She is looking cute as ever in her orange dress, turquiose belt and necklace and new Sperry's!

 Trevor is a "big kid on campus" this year as he enters 5th grade.  He is excited that this is his last year in elementary school!

Meredith is going into third grade and is so excited to have the best 3rd grade teacher at the school.  Plus the majority of her brownie troop is in her class!
