“Me mind on fire, me soul on fire
Feelin’ hot hot hot
Party people, all around me
Feelin hot hot hot!”
Flashback to this past Sunday:
“We interrupt this blog for an important weather report:
It will be as hot as blue blazes this week in sunny Southern California.”
It’s great to be back to the blog after several days away enjoying a frolicking good time with family this week.
MLB popped in for the week, and then Panda (youngest son) came through – with his girlfriend, Amber – for a few days of fun in the “warm California sun.”
How hot was it??
OH. MY. GOODNESS!
But why let a little heat bring you down! So it was 94° Fahrenheit at Disneyland – we were still at Disneyland, right? How can that possibly be a bad thing? You suffer through for the good of the team – and of course the rides, the people, and the “happiest place on earth”:
Rough day for the chipmunk costume, but the “cast member” takes it in perfect stride.
Nighttime at Disneyland – the spectacular “World of Color” water and light show, was AMAZING!
Images are projected onto a giant screen of water. A must see, for sure. We had the added bonus of getting sprayed with water from the giant fountains, and boy did it feel great at the end of the day:
Sandwiched around the day at Disneyland, we spent a couple of days at the ocean.
It wasn’t quite as hot on the coast, but the sun did leave its mark on the four of us. We enjoyed sunning, surfing, boogie-boarding, and a bit of swimming in the warm Pacific water (72° Fahrenheit).
I promise I looked just like Michael Phelps in the water – except for the lack of gold medals, technique, and super-toned body. Otherwise, we could have been twins. No, really!
Before you know it, time has flown by. The sentimental sap in me gets teary-eyed as family goes back home, leaving a melancholy as warm and rich as the fading sunset.
