Palm Springs

Recently we went on a mini vaca to Palm Springs.  It was a nice escape from our San Francisco Summer.  The sun felt SO good! When we left I believe it was 106 degrees.  Ahhh…

We were there for only 3 nights, but I felt refreshed and relaxed upon our return. The warm nights are the best part of hot weather if you ask me.  It feels so good to be in a tank top at 9pm and still feel the heat on my skin.

Here is a shot of Maddox and Josh taking a moment to enjoy the hammock.

Maddox and Riley pick up a game of Bocce…

(The metal balls are VERY heavy for a 1 1/2 year old!)

Next up, Maddox and Damon play a game of Giant Chess!

Maddox and I just finished making cheesy souffle ebelskivers with the fancy pan and cookbook my mother bought us for Christmas. Turns out Maddox likes playing with flour as much as the dirt outside!  The difference is he is totally contained in his highchair and I can do indoor mommy activities (like actually cook). He uses the measuring spoons, and whisk, and pours and stirs over and over. He is a very focused youngin’. I let him shake in some cinnamon for color and fun. Flour is pretty cheap too, for the amount of fun he is gets out of it!

We took Maddox on his very first camping trip this past weekend.  I’d say it was a smashing success!  He had a lot of fun staying up late enough to see bats and the moon, playing in the river, playing with buckets of water at the campsite, eating every meal outside, having a constant companion (he couldn’t be left alone in the wilderness for even a minute so he always had a buddy), taking his very first shower (not counting the time grandma turned the shower on him while he was in the bath!), and having 4 dogs at our site!
