Palm Springs.....

We went from snow to weather in the 90's in one week.

We couldn't of asked for better weather in Palm Springs!

We stayed at our time share and enjoyed the pool.
The kids must of gone on that slide a million times!

They even entered in a "who has the biggest splash" contest.
They didn't win but they had fun trying.

We packed away all our winter clothes and brought out our spring and summer clothes. It feels good to be wearing tank tops and flip flops again:)

We hung out in Rancho Mirage at the River walk one night.

Great Grandma and Grandpa couldn't wait to see us, so they drove out and stayed with us. It's been 4 months since the kids have seen them. They are very close so this was a longggggggg time for them to be away. Faith made them shell necklaces from our trip at Bay St. Louis and Landen couldn't wait to show Nana he could read!

We stayed a couple nights at an RV park in Desert Springs and enjoyed soaking in the mineral tubs. We met some Canadian friends that are full timers. Now, I want to road trip it around Canada after hearing about all the beautiful places there ey!

Finley's eye is healing nice but we are trying to keep it out of the sun so it doesn't scar. She also sported the "palm" springs pony tail:)

This girl loveeeeeeeees bananas!
Can you tell?

Downtown Palm Springs......

The kids wanted to take a picture with Sonny Bono even though they had no idea who he was.

The kids just kept giving Nana and Papa hugs the whole time. They missed them so much!

We enjoyed a nice dinner out on the town!

Everyone had a partner...

We didn't do any school while we were there. We called our own Spring Break. It sure was a nice break!

The kids were a little disappointed that I didn't make green pancakes and the toilet didn't turn green when they flushed etc.... like the previous St. Patrick days we've celebrated but I did have a green marker that saved the day!!!

and Grandma brought St. Patricks Cupcakes...

and they all got to sport shamrock tattoos at the pool...

whew!!...thank God for the cupcakes Grandma brought and the green marker....
I am still a cool mom in their eyes:)

Austin, Faith and I took lessons to learn to play pickleball. A tournament was going on so one of the players offered to give us a free lesson. We played a lot of pickleball . It's such a fun game, kind of like tennis. We all enjoyed learning a new game. I think we might of picked up on a new sport!

Maybe we will have a future tennis or pickleball star in the family:)

We are enjoying this California weather and love being back to see our family and friends!
Stay tuned as I try to catch up on the rest of our road trip.....
