It's January 16.
I suppose 50-degree weather shouldn't be a surprise.
A few weeks ago, in the midst of our "winter" I'd planned on heading out to the beach today. The girls are off school and I figured a beach run for me, bike ride for them would be a great way to spend the morning. Then after our run/ride I could let the girls play in the sand and shore as I sat and relaxed nearby, maybe reading a book or listening to music or just soaking in the rays.
But today's forecast for the nearby beach is mid-50s, cloudy and nothing like the low 70s that the beach enjoyed just a couple of weeks ago.
Now, I can still head out there and run/ride with the girls but the whole playing-in-the-water part would probably not happen. It's one thing if the sun is out and is warm but cloudy weather would make for a chilly time on the beach and that's probably not all that enjoyable.
So I don't know what we'll do this holiday. I gave the girls a lot of options - bike riding nearby, tennis, climb Mt. Rubidoux, baking, a combination of things - but they seemed rather nonplussed about the options. I don't think I can handle Disneyland today since it probably will be crowded, given the holiday and all.
Anyway, I best get on with my day. I feel like leaving you with a picture so I will.
Kennedy got all dressed up this weekend for a quincenera (a cousin of mine turned 15 and she had a big Mexican-style bash to celebrate) and it was a treat for Kennedy to be dressed the way she was.
I was the photographer for the ceremony (along with my sister-in-law) so we snapped plenty of pictures of Kennedy...
