Palm Springs

We are in Palm Springs right now for a retreat with Tom's law firm.  I think that the kids and I are having a lot more fun than Tom is because he has been in classes and doing team building exercises, but it is nice for all of us to get away for a few days.
We drove out on Friday (which was actually our 5th wedding anniversary) and had dinner with everyone.  Harper had a little too much ice cream (which she is allergic to anyway) and ended up throwing up all over the place on Friday night.  Yuck.

On Saturday Tom had to go to some classes after breakfast so I took the kids to a children's museum a couple of blocks away.  Most of the activities were a little too old for Harper, but we did find one thing that she LOVED.
She kept turning around and saying, "Look Mommy, I'm painting!"  I had to literally drag her away kicking and screaming so some other kids could have a turn.
When we got back Tom took Harper to the swimming pool.  She was a little nervous at first, but ended up really loving it.
Jonah and I hung out in the shade while they swam.
And now we are just packing up our hotel room and waiting for Tom to get back from some classes.  It's fun to get away, but it's nothing like sleeping in the same room with your children that can make you want to get home and sleep in your own bed.

I'm glad ya'll were able to get away for a few days. I'm sorry Tom didn't get to enjoy it as much as ya'll did! Looks like Harper and Jonah had fun!
