Fun in the sun

We went out to Palm Springs this past weekend to hang out with friends and have some family fun in the sun. We had a blast and stayed cool in our friend Catherine's pool. Yay!!! Here are a few pics :)

Noah and Josh :)

Hayden & I :)
Auntie Lisa (& our baby cousin in her tummy):

The kids had their first official sleepover where they got to sleep together on the floor. Hayden is finally old enough to not need a pack and play, yay! Noah fell right to sleep, but I had to cuddle with Hayden for a bit while she got used to being "free" while falling asleep.

The next day on the ride home, we were nice and cool in our car while it was like this outside:

And the kids did some of this, which is always a nice treat :)
We had such a fun weekend with friends and family! Ah the joys of Summer!
Now, back to the grind :)

I'm working on my dining set (well, when I say "I," I of course mean my "hubby and I" and if I'm really being honest, I mean "My hubby." This project is a bit over my head. I mean, I can do it, but if it is to be done the totally right way, the hubby and his power tools must get involved. Stay tuned, it's going to be AWESOME). Here's a teaser pic for you....

I feel like the floral is totally cool and anthropologie inspired. Agree?? (you better agree or else, ha ha).

Oh, and here is a random picture of Hayden on her way to swimming lessons. Ha ha! Crack up!
She makes me laugh!
Happy Monday :)


  1. so cute! looks like you had an amazing weekend!!!
    that last picture of hayden is awesome!!!!

  2. Looks like a fab weekend! Love the fabric and the rain boots! 2 cute!

  3. We used to go to Plam Springs for spring break every year growing up. I love Palm Springs! How cute Hayden is! Have fun with your dining set. Look forward to seeing it!

  4. What a fun weekend! I wish I could dive into that pool! And Lisa with her cute baby bump! And Hayden is so trendy, lovin the aqua and yellow combo!

  5. OMG, Hayden has got to be one of the cutest girls in the world--I just want to put her in my pocket!

    I'm a wee bit jealous of your fun pool time. :) It's been in the high 90s with oppressive humidity for weeks now where I live. I went out to feed our pigs last night around 7:30 and was completely drenched in sweat within 10 minutes. Like mascara was puddled under my eyes when I came inside--and since I foolishly only pulled up part of my hair, the rest of it that was down was stringy and sticking to my shoulders. Umm, nasty, right?

    But...I'm massively excited because I'm coming to SoCal (Santa Monica/LA, then Del Mar for some horse racing) next month for five days!! I absolutely love the weather so much where you are (and the food, and being on the coast, and so many other things!) :) It will be a welcome break from from all this disgusting southern humidity and haze.

  6. So FUN...can I get a repeat! And, possibly the most awesome kids I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am so lucky to be Aunt Catherine. xo

  7. The bathing suit and rain boots are cracking me up. So stinkin cute


I think I'm a comment-a-holic :)
