Mom & Dad

My Mom and Dad came out to visit a couple weeks ago and I was really excited to see them and show them what I’ve been doing.  It was hard to squeeze in everything in a few days, but we managed do most everything. We spent the first day in LA at the farmers market and just driving around. The next day we spent in Palm Springs. I took them to a hike called the Bump N Grind that overlooks the city.

The next night we went on the Palm Spring Tramway. It takes you on an aerial view ride up to a mountain peak which looks over Palm Springs and the surrounding areas.

We spent the next two days in San Diego looking for a place for me to live. We spent the night downtown where we went to dinner at a restaurant on the harbor and took a nice walk through the gaslamp district. We saw this dog outside the restaurant.


The guy said the glasses keep bugs out his eyes.

The next morning we woke up and spent the day at the zoo. 

Our last night we went to see the Fabulous Follies.  Its a famous show of singing and dancing 50-80 year olds.  It was a great show to end the trip.  Love you Mom and Dad

Palm Springs Pool Party

The last weekend before all the snowbirds left Palm Springs, they threw a pool party and invited us.  The average age of the party guests was probably 75. We enjoyed a nice day at the pool with delicious finger foods.  Grandmas cook much better than our friends.

Palm Springs Rodeo

I experienced my first rodeo a couple weeks ago in Palm Springs. I had no idea all that a rodeo entails. Those poor baby calves……….. They get tackled and flipped over by the neck and then tie up their feet so they can’t move! So.. after we watched Amy, Meleah, and I snuck behind their pin and fed them to make them feel better. :)

Briar Rose Winery

Amy’s two sisters also came to visit a couple weeks ago.  We took a day trip to a winery in Temecula, California. One of the imagineers from Disney World built this house for his wife that he modeled after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. She thought the weather was too hot and dry, so they sold it and the new owners turned it into a winery.

Stephen’s Visit

I’m a little behind on updating my blog, but about a month ago Stephen came out for a visit! We stayed busy and had a blast!
