It's rare that we go anyplace with the whole family. Solveig's away at school. Sena and Seamus are growing up and avoid us when we invite them on our outings, unless it's something they find worthwhile like the beach or Joshua Tree.
This fathers day they woke before sunrise so we could be in in the park early to beat the triple digit temps - it was 108 degree at noon when we drove to palm springs for lunch.
We had a fabulous time soaking the heat into our bones.
