Random Slices of Palm Springs

Between checking out their new digs and begging to watch a show before bed, the girls are always crazy the first night we stay somewhere, which translates into everyone being groggy and cranky in the morning. Morning cartoons and snuggles with Amelia and Meredith made it better!

Meredith’s favorite part of the day is bath time. She wiggles her legs so fast, she almost propels herself through the water.

Making tote bags and leaving the mess there.

I’m pretty sure there was no glitter paint leftover after the girls were done with it.

One of the perks of being a twin is you always have someone with whom to ride the teeter totter.

Checking out the fountain while we waited for our lunch.

Samantha was upset after Jake pushed her down the waterslide without thinking– I was out of the pool with Meredith, so there was no one to catch her! Fortunately, a nice lady in the pool caught her as she plopped out the bottom, but Samantha and Amelia refused to go on the slide again after that.

The girls spent two whole days just diving in and out of the pool.

Since it was mid-week when we were there and the crowds from the Coachella and Stagecoach concerts had left, we almost had the place to ourselves.

Meredith was alert and fascinated most of the time we were at the pool, but became overtired easily with all the overstimulation. Naps were not a problem during our vacation.

There was so much we wanted to do in Palm Springs that we didn’t get the chance to do (the tram up the mountain and the airplane museum are on our list for next time), but it was nice to escape the every day routine and get away for a few days. It was worth schlepping our millions of baby items there and back!

Lots of love,
