Even at 8 in the evening, this is how bright it is in Phoenix. And yes... the cement is still hot. You'll notice, second to last photo, is that of bare feet in the grass, not the cement!
Blueberry has a hard time in the heat as well. Those of you with pugs (which is oddly A LOT of bloggers :)) know that pugs are really sensitive.
But one thing I will always ALWAYS look forward to is that Arizona sunset. Unbeatable.
