My dad came into town this weekend which was a lot of fun to see him!! He more recently remarried, and things have never been so different for our family, so any chance to catch up with him is treasured.
The problem with such high temperatures is that the night time lows are in the 90s and by early morning we're already well into the 100s, so mornings are out for venturing with the bebe.
Luckily this extreme heat is short lived. We're back to low 100s, a breath of fresh air!! The low tomorrow night is 81. 81!!! Break out the boots.
The pool thermometer broke, but usually the water is close to 100 degrees by this time of summer, which it does feels like it. A giant bathtub. I am still cold when I get out.
The bugs are out in herds when it's this hot. I assume they're all cookin' in the ground and have to come out. We haven't had any scorpions, but we've had these new and obnoxious little black beetles, and Ben also found this creeper in the street.

This is my fifth summer here and every year there are new summer bugs that show up. This is also the driest, most boring summer we've had, and I'm hoping we get some monsoons because they are just so exciting and typically make the Arizona summers much more bearable.
Meanwhile we'll just swim. And obsessively watch the weather radar for a STORM.
I also posted today about my brother in the finals for Chinese Top Idol. Help him win by voting for him for this last round!
