Palm Springs...

With 85* - 90* weather, we were in heaven! No work, no school, not chores... just family, pools, tennis, and eating, what else could you ask for?!



Thursday morning we woke up bright and early at 4:30am and got on the road by 5:30am... We drove 4 hrs and 15 mins to finally arrive at Palm Springs... The rest of the family was already there... The weather was so great that the first thing we did was put on our suits and go swimming... this was kates first time in the pool and she loved it!






After that we all got ready and headed to the matches {Pacific Life Open Tennis Tourney}. We ate dinner there and watched the Nadal vs Blake match... it was great!




It's sooo nice to be with family on vacation because they all love to watch and hold kate and it is a nice break of daniel and i. Thanks Cami for always wanting to hold her even if your mom steals her everytime ;)... thanks rach and dustin for playing with kate and giving me a little break before the match, thanks darren for always making kate laugh, and thanks ron and kath for having that gma/gpa instinct and ALWAYS taking her when right when i need you to!



During the match kate got so tired she feel right asleep...





she didn't sleep very long, but i was so glad she was so happy when she woke up!



After the matches we went back to the condo and hung out... Kate got stuck trying to reach for this fruit roll-up...


The next day we started out at the pool again...


It was right before Kate is usually down for a nap... i thought she'd stay awake while we had some fun... but she totally crashed...



Friday Night we saw sharapova play and then went to this great little Italian Cafe, Mario's.... It's delicious!!




We left too soon... Can't wait to go back next year!!

I love the picture of Kate falling asleep in the pool inner tube thing! Super cute! I was thinking about getting that inner tube for Marisa but I was a little worried that it wouldn't cover her very well. Did you like it? And does it do a good job blocking the sun?
