Palm Springs, Take 2

If you read my last post, you recall that our first effort for our family vacation last weekend was rescheduled when Addison got sick 5 minutes away from our destination.
We rescheduled for this past weekend, and I must have asked Addison a ganglion times on the way to Palm Springs if she was feeling ok.

Then I would say, "Graham, how are you?"

Yes, yes you are.

The shortest route to Palm Desert takes you straight through the mountains and in the absolute middle of nowhere.  You better not have to go to the bathroom or run out of gas.

There was this one turnout that had a whole row of mailboxes that looked pretty cool but made you wonder where these people all lived.
It also made me consider how many bottles of water they brought with them just to check the mail.

 middle of nowhere
and getting hotter.....I think our car said 97 at this point.
 One side note....Andy went to check on Addison the night before and she was still help trying to "decide on what jewelry to bring to Palm Springs".
This is what she decided upon.

We got to the resort on Sunday afternoon, grabbed a quick bite to eat and headed straight to the pool to try and beat the 104 degree heat.

The resort is the PERFECT place to bring a family to.
It's got several pools, and an area they call "Splashtopia"...complete with lazy river, waterslides, and a splash area.  We pretty much hung out there all three days.  It was awesome.

We got to dinner out at both Tommy Bahamas, and Roy's, both of which could have gone horribly wrong, but were actually great.
It helped that Roys had a toy chest for the kids to pick from as soon as they walked in the door.....not to mention, Aloha Hour for us parents!!

A LO ha.

Also great, the dessert.

They put the kids' names on each of their sundaes.

Tomato, Tomoto......
she didn't care.

Staying up late watching movies....what vacation is all about.

Then there was a lot more relaxation
Walking to breakfast....

 And plenty more pool time. 


It all ended way too soon....we could have stayed a couple of more days, and we've already talked about going back again soon.  We loved every part of it.....except the two hour drive home where Graham screamed the whole way because he was a LITTLE overtired.
Could have done without that part.

But the rest of the trip....
loved it, always nice to spend time with these guys.
