Birthday Trip to Palm Springs

For a couple days over my Birthday (April 9th) we took the short airplane ride to Palm Springs.  It was hot (almost 100 degrees), pretty, fun, and a new experience for the 3 of us.  TL had never been, and I haven't been in years!  We stayed at the Westin Desert Willows, and spent most of our time by the pool.  Our sweet girl loves the water - she cries when you take her out, so we had to get creative with her!  She did well on the plane both ways, enjoyed meeting new people, tried a few new foods, wore about 4,000 layers of sunscreen and loved her time in the water.  TL and I also got a few games of cribbage and yahtzee in after her bedtime.

The retired people in Palm Springs loved Andie, and she was a big ham for all of them.  It is so much fun to share her with others, she is such a joy!

I had some time to myself to lay out by the pool with a cocktail on my Birthday, and it was awesome.  For Birthday gifts, TL and I like to make memories and travel - and I love it!
Off the plane and right into the water. This girl has no fear!


A fun and quick adventure to kick off another year.  I am so blessed.
