Trying to stay cool....

It is officially hot here. We've had such a pleasant summer up until now so it's kind of a shock to the system! We went from cloudy foggy mornings with highs of 80 to 104 and HUMID. This change was overnight. So needless to say we're trying to find the balance of staying out of the heat and not going completely stir crazy in our small apartment. There's been lots of Wii playing, Max and Ruby cartoons, reading, visiting the library the water park and Barnes and Noble. One thing that I find really lovely about living out here is that there are so many fun kid activities. There are parks with water fountains, our apartment pool, indoor play places and of course the beach. So although it is pretty miserable right now we are making the very most of it.

Fourth of July

Fourth of July was spent at a birthday party in the morning and then at a nice grassy spot in Thousand Oaks in the afternoon. Our friends Nikki and Peter celebrated with us and we really had a relaxing time enjoying the evening.

 Nikki and I got to hang out and people watch while Chris, Peter and Anders went to the Apple store. We looked pretty happy!
Chris and Peter being goofy before the fireworks started.

This picture was taken before the fireworks. You know how I can tell? Anders looks relaxed and happy as opposed to freaking out and screaming.

This picture was taken earlier in the day at our friends son Gus' 3rd birthday party. It was held at a place called Underwood Farms and was quite the fun party. The kids got to feed the animals go on all the rides including pony rides. (Anders was in heaven!).
