WORDLESS & WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

California weather is unpredictable.

The past couple of weeks have been scorching hot.

Last Saturday, our kids played soccer in 100 degree weather. There was no hint of fall in the air.

But, just a couple of days later, we're freezing our tails off at my son's soccer game.

My kids went from wearing shorts and t-shirts, to this...in just a matter of days.

Same here!! We went from 85 just two days ago and it was 34 when we woke up this morning!! Nuts.

Michelle said...

No kidding! At 6:00 this evening the wind came whipping up at my daughters field hockey game and all of a sudden we were freezing. Of course we won't tell all of the people in other parts of the country that we Californians think 65 is cold. :)

Ms. Latina said...

Wow 100 degrees sounds dangerous for a game! And I can't believe Lindsey went from 85 to 34! Thats just crazy weather! Now I cant complain, cause it been around 70 everyday so far this fall in NYC. I love it! Hmmm maybe you need to visit LOL

Happy WW!

Sarah said...

this time of year in NC is odd.... 85 during the day, 40's at night.... heat or no heat.... ????

Sara said...

I am so right there with ya! I was wearing jeans today, and flip flops and a tshirt, and went out like that, and FROZE my bootie off! It feels cold enough to snow up here! Crazy!

MommaD said...

Carissa(GoodnCrazy) said...

You're tellin' me?? We are freezing our butts off today.. but last week it was so warm we ran the A/C every day?? Go figure.

Genny said...

I know what you mean (I'm in CA too), but aren't you loving the fall (finally!) weather?! :)

Hi! I'm Grace said...

It is getting colder here in Michigan, too.
By the way, she is so cute. :)

Collette@Jesuslovesmums said...

Love this photo Alicia! She looks so cold!!
I can't remember the last time we had a hot day here in Scotland. It just seems to rain all the time! Autumn has def arrived here!
Love Collette xxxx

Sande said...

.... and today we had a waterfight, this after I wore a jacket to the beach on Sunday

Denise said...

Same here in Tennessee.

Jane Anne said...

The weather is just crazy here, too. Saturday it was perfect. Today the rain came and brought cooler temperatures. The boys loved it though!

Pilar said...

I love the faces your daughter is making. It is like mommy I want to smile but this wind don´t let me!!

LiveLaughLoveCj said...

Ohhhhh she's so cold and the wind... make the wind stop mommy!

Too sweet and what a swing in the Cali weather.

Stacy said...

Girl that's what happened to us too.

It was hot the other day and now its 51.

But I do love fall!

blueviolet said...

From Sunday to Monday was totally different here! It must be going around!

Susie said...

Sounds like Wisconsin weather!!

Kimberly said...

We're feeling the cold front here too. We enjoyed it last night though by lighting up a big fire in the pit out on the patio. Cozy!

I love the expression on her face. It's like she's trying with all her might to be pleasant and smile, but the wind is just too cold! :)

Staci said...

It was the same here! Makes me kinda sad!!

He & Me + 3 said...

Us too here in Michigan. Gotta go get bundled up to take Stunt Man to school. :) Cute pictures.

jen@odbt said...

Happens here on the east coast too. Can't Mother Nature ease us into the seasonal change?

Parsley said...

What part of CA are you in? My husband is a native Californian.

Yep, I understand that sudden change in weather. Never know how to dress the kids.

Hugs.

Lauren said...

ahh yes -- the instant weather changes -- part of the joys of living in California! :) ( I grew up in San Diego) I miss it!!!

Darcie said...

So fall officially came to your neck of the woods too, eh? Are you like me...prefer the cooler weather for games verses the hot?

Sweet picture of your little one...pretty in purple.

Wendy said...

Fall is crazy like that for us, too! One day you're running the a/c, the next you're cranking up the furnace!

Happy WW!

HaB said...

I live on the East Coast and it is FREEZING!! Last Saturday I made my daughter wear her winter hat when we went out to play!

Brrrrr!

Jennifer said...

Our weather has been the same way. Awesome pictures! Happy WW!

Life with Kaishon said...

She is so beautiful! Every time I see her pictures it takes my breath away! SUCH a sweet little girl!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

It has cooled off a lot here too...and I am so glad! It is time for fall weather! She is too cute in her purple jacket!

Alicia W. said...

Were down to the 50's in the mornings and then in the evening its' back up to 80. Whew.. It's hard to dress the kids in this type of weather in the South. :)

Tiaras said...

man so did we - what is up??

Alicia, The Snowflake said...

She does look cold...and not too happy about it either. Love the purple coat, though ;)

{Kiki} said...

beautiful pictures. love her expressions. we have been experiencing cooler weather this week. it's wonderful, but i have not prepared our fall clothes. it is supposed to last through the weekend. perfect for outdoor play. happy WW and take care.

Karen said...

We went from snow to 80 degree weather again here...

Momisodes said...

I feel you on the wacky weather.

The saying around here is:
If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait 10 minutes :)

The Farmer Files said...

I started to worry last night that I am not going to have fall clothing for my kids! Same in SD. 100 degree weather one day and then it dropped to 71 yesterday and I thought we would all freeze!

Stephanie said...

Crazy weather right now! I love fall though....I just am not ready in the clothes department yet.

BeLoVed AiMeE said...

yeah, it's supposed to SNOW tomorrow. sigh. cute pics of V!

Nina said...

I know exactly what you are saying. I am not in California but just last night we were freezing at soccer practice and just last Saturday it was a beautiful day for a soccer game.

homeschoolceo said...

Sounds like the weather around here. They say if you don't like it, stick around for a few days...it's bound to change.

She's beautiful :D

PS How funny that we have so many things in common. You're living my life!!! Lol.

Savvy Gal said...

am with you on cal weather. it is still sizzling here. : )

Happy said...

She is a beautiful little girl! We are experiencing cool and rainy weather...I can handle the chill, but the rain is killing me...makes the cold feel so much...colder! That's pittsburgh for you, though!

4 Lettre Words said...

What a beauty against that blue sky!

Erin said...

I think is that way all along the West Coast. A few days ago we were experiencing an Indian Summer and now we're kicking on the heater and hoping the last of our gardens are frozen at night. Ah, well, it lasted longer than is typical, so I'll just stay grateful!

BrnEyedGal said...

Its the same way here in Michigan...Sunday was like 70 and then today it was 46 this morning...Yuck!!! :)

Even a little windblown, your daughter is still such a cutie pie!!!
Have a great day Alicia... :)

♥The imPerfect Housewife♥ said...

I live in Missouri, so "unpredictable weather" is our middle name!! Well, Missouri doesn't really have a middle name...but if they did that's what it would be. Have a great day ~ ♥

Pam said...

I know the feeling. I took my son on a field trip last Friday and it was hot!
I'm having to accompany my nephew on one Friday and it will be cold!

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

We haven't gotten that cold yet but our heat wave is definitely over...yea! I was just glad to finally turn off the AC!

Cute pics!

Muthering Heights said...

Wow, it must be hard to prepare...I guess you must wear a lot of layers this time of year! :)

Oh, and I fixed my video of Rose! :)

☼¨`*•.♥RocĂ­o♥.•*¨`☼ said...

I know what you mean! I used to live in L.A. and it was crazy!
You sweet girl look precious in purple! =)

Kysha said...

adorable!

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

Living in the Seattle area I so know what you mean! Maybe not quite 100 degree weather, thank God! But it will be extremely warm one minute and then cold and rainy the next. ;)

Laura said...

Yep! Our weather has been crazy, too! I'm not complaining, I am glad it has cooled down. I love having all my windows open during the day. :)

JamericanSpice said...

It is true. My SIL lives there and tells me of the weather how it's moody.

Daphine said...

Sounds like Texas weather to me! lol!
