When we lived in California before, we lived in the Santa Monica area. This time we are located in the Burbank area which means we are in “The Valley”. This means summer is a whole new ball game. It gets about 10 degrees hotter or colder in the valley meaning when it’s hot, it’s really hot! I experienced this for the first time this past weekend when there was a heat wave. It was like summer was here and it made me want to start planning all kinds of fun activities. Luckily we have a fabulous pool and central air… otherwise I doubt we would make it though summer in the valley. Im very much looking forward to pool days, popsicles, BBQ’s, and movie marathons these coming months. Now that Avery is here I want to make sure he gets to do as many fun things as possible, I know he is still to little to know what’s going on but that doesn’t mean we can’t start our family traditions!
