I know the last post was of our family vacation, it may seem as though we spent our entire Summer vacationing... that would be so very close to the truth! This Summer was cut short due to a milestone and a transition on our elementary school's part but we still got to enjoy it!
Shortly after we arrived home from Las Vegas, the boys and I packed it up and headed to our WorldMark Timeshare in Indio, Ca to have our annual "just me and my boys" trip.
This was our backyard for nine whole glorious days!
We arrived near dinnertime so we ate and fed the ducks!
And checked out the playground!
The next morning I woke to this:
Slowly but surely the boys woke and even before feeding themselves, asked to feed the ducks!
Then the boys feed the ducks!!
I love how Seth & Garrett (who are younger) have to talk Tristen into feeding the ducks out of their hands! haha!
It looked like so much fun, I just had to try it!! (Plus Seth was chomping at the bit to get a hold of my camera - chip off the ole block!)
okay, just for fun... count how many times Garrett says, "can I get some more bread?"
Tristen finally does it!
Now that you've lived our first morning here with us... enjoy some snapshots of our day!
OMG!!! REALLY??!!!! BOYS!!
It was 122 degrees so we decided to wait until sunset to go outside (for a photoshoot) - in the meantime we stayed indoors and played games like
Photoshoot was challenging because I had to use my tripod, but I think these turned out nice enough
Seth took these next two - like I said, chip off the ole block!
The rest of the trip was a bit of a blur! We spent a ton of time at the pools (that's a given) but we also took time out to have a pizza picnic at the park, got a surprise weekend visitor (my loving husband, Brad - and you know I just had to retake some of the previous poses to include him), since Brad was there I was able to go out at sunrise and ravage several chapters of my book and go for a nature walk, after Brad left Sunday the boys and I got some fun pictures on the splash pad since Sunday is obviously the day most people check out (it was like a ghost town), and before we left I made good on my earlier promise to the boys that we'd play tennis (although, we had to do that at night due to the extreme heat)!
