One of my son in laws loves to get up early and climb Piestewa Peak, a very popular and intense hike here in the valley, and watch the sun rise. I thought it would be fun to post some of his pics here for you all to enjoy.

The main attraction at Kids Club this summer has been what we call Clue Search using a Decoder. Basically, I write clues in code that lead to another clue that leads to the next clue, and so on. What are they trying to find? Well each time it is tailored to what that days theme is and I always give them a verbal clue to start out with. Once, I used the verse, knock and it shall be opened as the verbal clue, so the first clues where taped to doors. The kids love figuring out the clues so much there really doesn't even have to be something at the end of it all to find.

June is over and it was one of the hottest Junes on record here. I know 119 was the official high one day this June, but I can tell you I heard reports of plenty of people saying their cars were registering 123 and up, one said 128! In the summer here, I often get cabin fever. It usually sets in about August but I already have it this summer. Glad our monsoon rains will be starting soon.
