  1. Okay… I don’t get it…. We just came back from California and it was smokin hot. In fact…. I thought I was going to implode. Yet, I see that Becky has on two shirts, Margaret is in a long sleeve shirt??????? How is this possible? How hot was it in the daytime? I can’t imagine.

    1. Thank you for that laugh. Ok, I am behind on the blog. We are in California, but not in Death Valley. We drove to the coast to beat the heat. Hope you guys enjoyed your travels in California even though it was smokin’ hot!
