Good Food, Arizona Weather and Wave Pools

So, all quiet on the West Coast here – the last few days have been full of the above. Yesterday we went to a wave pool in Tempe featuring a huge mechanical wave every five minutes – great fun yet eerily reminiscent of the arena in ‘Catching Fire’ (Hunger Games II) when it begins!


Max and Chloe both claim the red water slide was amazing – I did not try it…




What has been particularly remarkable this trip has been the weather – for the first time we have landed in Moonsoon season! This means that unlike the usual weather of this…


There has been unusually large amounts of this:


Also there have been huge rain and thunderstorms every evening and this morning I awoke to many flood warnings – my phone sent me at least three warnings of flash flooding in my local area! The storms have been very exciting (when inside obviously!), full of both sheet and fork lightening. However I can tell you that the iPhone camera is not cut out for storm videography as this is the best I got…


The food as usual has been good but enormous – today we went to Eggstacy for lunch and for $11 Max and I split the following:


Greek-style gyro hash with a poached egg – half a portion pictured


Pecan Pie Pancakes – the full portion!

Other examples of an entire day’s calories in one plate include Chloe’s banana Nutella pancakes:


Or Nathaniel’s mango pancakes accompanied by asparagus hash (Hash not pictured)


Finally I leave you with what I originally thought might be the worst cereal ever (thank goodness it’s not real!)
