Hot Tub

"I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire" - Johnny Cash

We went to the beach today to go swimming with some friends. Work is finished for the summer... Woot Woot! and we thought it would be great to take the kids and go relax at the beach and cool off in the ocean.

Well.... we left a little after 8:00am to beat the heat. ... and here are the stats:

  • air temp = 43-44 degrees
  • water temp = 33-35 degrees
  • humidity = lots of sweat

In American terms:

  • air temp = 110-112 degrees
  • water temp = 91-95 degrees
  • humidity = sweating like dogs

You can imagine how refreshing the water was... it wasn't. But somehow we still had fun.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that Yvonne has her cast off now (YIPEE!), but still can't really put any weight on that foot (booo hisss) and hence can't walk. So, I got to give her a piggy back ride for about 200 yards across the sand that might have actually been hot coals.

But somehow, we still had fun :)


  1. Did your piggy back experience make you think of the pioneers?

    Hmmmmmmmm.....such conditions must make coming to Rexburg sound like fun. According to, it's 63 degrees, and it FEELS like 63 degrees. Come on, a thirty hour plane ride with three babies and a wife with one working leg would be worth it for that.

  2. I've seen that in the movies... The man carrying the woman, walking across the hot coals to save the woman and truly become a MAN. You are so cool!
