Summer Summer Go Away, Give Us Back Our Fall Today!

Not sure what is going on here in good old Southern California. It's been major chaos. Aside from all of the weird earthquake prediction and hoaxes, we are having a heat wave like no other. I'm talking like 101 degrees here in Orange County. And we are only about 10 minutes away from the beach! It's been crazy. Not to mention it is wreaking havoc on everyone's allergies! At the wedding last week, I think 9 out of 10 people that I talked to were either sick (including Punkin!) or just getting over being sick. I hate it. And it's not fair. Don't get me wrong, we love our warm weather. It makes for some beautiful days and fun outside play...

...but I think it's time that Summer got the memo that it's time is DONE! We started having some really cool days. It was so cold at night that I pulled out all of Punkin's warm pj's. Now she is back to sleeping in her summer pj's...sometimes even in just a diaper (since she takes after her Momma and gets hot really easily and sweats). And that makes it even worse. Hot, cold, hot, cold. So now Haley has had a cold for the last week and a half. And I hate seeing my poor little baby sick!!!

It's a good thing she knows how to blow her nose! Still, no parent wants to see their child sick. And I'm ready for Fall!!! I was so excited! Everyone else in different parts of the country are already starting to feel their crisp, cool weather...now it's our turn. Go away Summer! Bring our Fall back! And just so you know, no matter what kind of weather Mother Nature decides to send us, that won't stop us from enjoying every single day that the good Lord has blessed us with.

  6. I'm stopping by from saturday six link up. I live in CA too, and yeah the weather is crazy!! My girls don't know weather to wear shorts or rain boots!! It goes from thunder and lightnening to a beautiful rainbow going cross the sky! I guess the best thing to do is carry spare clothing, a fall outfit and a summer one!!
