Palm Springs Getaway

We had the chance to get away to one of Marlene's timeshare places in Palm Springs for two nights at the beginning of Christmas break. The place we stayed was great, it was a large two bedroom place and the resort had a fun pool with waterslides.  The weather was in the high 60's, and the pool's were heated, so we swam.  It was pretty chilly for me, but Ethan had a blast and was on the waterslide non stop. Alayna enjoyed, but spent some time in the spa with me as well :)  We didn't bother putting Everett in the pool.




  The kids got glitter tattoos by the pool and thought that was great :)

We went hiking in Palm Canyon, right across the street from the timeshare. The hike went on several miles longer than we did, but we made it up far enough to enjoy the view. The desert has such a different, rugged beauty.  While I definitely avoid the desert in the summer, during the winter it is perfect!


Everett hasn't perfected the selfie yet ;)








We managed to get in three swim sessions for the kids while were there :)

That last photo is beautiful! I'm the totally opposite as I buy passes to Soak City and flock out there to the heat in the summer ha!
