Adjusting to life here has been interesting for us all. When Arizonans make jokes about the dry heat there's almost no way you can understand unless you live here. First of all my skin is dryer than it's ever been, even in the winters of New York and Argentina it was never this bad.
When we first arrived I found an old plastic milk crate out on the patio. As I was moving it around I dropped it and .... It shattered into 7 pieces! I picked up one of the pieces and it crumbled into tiny pieces. All the moisture was just gone from that milk crate. Then last week it happened again at the studio I was working at with some old plastic shelving. Crumbling plastic.... It's just odd.
On Sunday we thought perhaps it was cool enough to do a daytime outing outside. So we headed to Encanto Park downtown.
We came prepared with some umbrellas for the sun.
Here's Phoebe trying out the carousel on Enchanted Island.
The rocking horse sculpture as we enter Enchanted Island.
It's a pretty park, but it's was still really sunny. Maybe in another week it'll be better.
Just in time for Halloween!
