We stood inside the house, uncomfortable and sweaty while watching the heat radiate off the sidewalk. The air is so thick and heavy that it reminds me of a trip we took to Florida. This weather is not normal for where we live and I couldn’t stand it any longer so we loaded into the car, on our way to Santa Cruz for some good old fashioned Mariannes Ice Cream. Aiden chose a chocolate cone and I had to fight Søren for bites of a scoop of peach that we were meant to share. It made for a nice little field trip to escape the heat and the ice cream there is always delicious.
