Palm Springs

A week late, but hey. That’s how things are going around these parts at the moment. We had a super time, as always. The Parker is such a great place to stay as a family, (even though it might not seem to be). The grounds are huge and they have a great pool, and we always stay in a big room with two bathrooms so Dashiell can sleep in one, and we can keep the lights on in our room after he goes to bed. It’s ideal.

A few photos from the weekend. Desert light is always so beautiful.

Somebody REALLY likes swimming. Can you tell? Also, we’ve found that a Fuzzi Bunz cover (without the liner) makes a great swim diaper/bathing suit. Just in case you were wondering.

Our one complaint about Palm Springs is that the food just kind of sucks. The “nice” places are all soooo expensive for meh food, which is a major pet peeve of mine. But there’s always Cheeky’s for breakfast or lunch, which is excellent. AND new to us, next door, a pizza and salad spot (by the same owners) called Birba. We went for dinner on Saturday night and it was pretty darn delicious. Hallelujah! Highly recommend it next time you’re out that way.

    no trip to palm springs is complete without a bloody mary in a glass cowboy boot at cheeky’s.

    I was wondering if you’ve ever mentioned what camera and lens you use…..I’d love to know. You’re pictures are always lovely.

    I swear I can make out a halo in that first picture on daddy’s shoulders.

    GORGEOUS photos! And that is one good tip about the FB/swim diaper. Would have never thought of that!

    Beautiful pics. Love the Parker! Can’t wait to take my one year old there soon.

    Really enjoyed Birba. They were kind enough to show me their pizza oven. What can I say-restaurants and pastry chefs are my celebrities!

    I like the food at King’s Highway (the Ace restaurant) and LOVE the coffee at Koffi—they have an iced malted mocha that is TDF.
