We're Not in California Anymore

It has been HOT this week. Seems like summer is a little confused this year, it's typical weather trying to play catch-up and make up for coming late. Thursday was no exception. It was just about 100 degrees in the backyard...and while I know the rest of the country is much hotter in places, this is hot for us.

My dad come up last night to visit. Aunt Lori & Uncle Hal celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary yesterday and went to dinner, so my dad took Emily & I out for Thai food at Mongkut Thai, delicious as usual. As the evening progressed the sky turned darker and darker and we could hear thunder in the distance. We came home to a HUGE full rainbow in the backyard, and a beautiful sunset in the front of the house. We were all laughing about the "Double Rainbow" video, and laughed even harder when we stumbled on the "Double Rainbow Song." While we were outside snapping pictures, it started to rain! It was still just as hot, but with big fat drops falling from the dark sky.
We lit the tiki torches and the five of us sat in the backyard marveling over the strange weather. Are you sure this is California?
P.S. the rainbow was much brighter and striking than it appears in the photo, but had it on the wrong camera setting :(
