Annnd we’re back! What a weekend! Not only was it the 4th of July but yesterday was our daughters 2nd birthday!
Our family had a little getaway to Palm Springs.We packed a lot of fun into our weekend. Our first day in town was spent testing our fear of heights. We rode a tram (suspended in air) up a mountain.
Once we were let off, the elevation was 8500 feet. It was a cool experience with an incredible view.
We hung out on the mountain and checked out the trails, boulders and anything else there was to discover.
There was plenty to see and plenty of dirt! And to think, I was thisclose to putting on my gym shoes.
Over the weekend we also checked out the zoo. We expected to feed the giraffes but they weren’t interested. Pretty shady characters, they are. I’m sure they’d say the same about us. I had intentions on taking a pic or two of my babies enjoying the zoo but it was as hot as a blazing inferno, I was surrounded by animals and my babies were calling me and their dad in unison most of the day. I forgot all about taking a picture. So this one will have to do.
Before we left, we made our way to this really cool children’s museum. It had “children of the desert” in its name. That was a bit eerie sounding but the place was really cool! The kids had a ball! They were exploring and building for hours.
We had a great time. Can’t even complain about the weather. It’s the desert, it’s hot. The one thing we didn’t have was BBQ! I guess we have the rest of the summer to make that happen. 🙂
How was your long weekend?
