Weekend Away

A few months ago John suggested that we get away for 3 nights with the girls.  He found a good deal at a resort in Palm Springs and booked it.  Little did we know that we would all need a little R and R. Getting back into work/home balance has been tough and this break came at the perfect time.  I worked Tuesday and Wednesday this week so that we could be free to leave mid day Thursday.  I got everything packed up and picked up Lilly (she get's out at 12:35 on Thursday).  Anna had a field trip so Courtney brought her home.  We loaded up and away we went.  We got to Palm Springs a little after 4 and stopped for dinner. We checked into the resort and John took the girls for a swim while I went to the store for a few things. We all got to bed early. Friday morning we woke up and had a yummy breakfast at the hotel, we headed back to the room and got ready for a day at splashtopia the resort's water park. We all enjoyed the water slides, lazy river, and little beach. We had pool service for lunch, the girls love when food is delivered to them, room service or pool service. They also deliver adult drinks :). We were there for over 6 hours. We got cleaned up and headed to PF Chang for dinner and then to get some ice cream. We were all tired and went back to the hotel. The girls and I went to sleep and John met up with Mark and a few other friends for an overnight hike. Yes, they are a little nuts. The next morning the girls and I had room service for breakfast, played, and headed back to splashtopia. John did not get back til almost 2pm. One guy couldn't make it and they all got separated for a while. Thankfully they all met back up and had lunch before the other's heading back to San Diego and John meeting up with us. We were at the pool, etc for about 6 hours again and everyone was tired. We got ready for dinner and headed to a Mexican place a few people had recommend. Well it was closed for a private party :(. We ended up at chipotle. At least the girls were happy! After our gourmet dinner we decided to head to over the rainbow cupcakes. It was a bit of a drive, but yummy. We headed back to the resort and got some sleep. Sunday we woke up and ordered room service, the girls were thrilled. John took them to the pool and I went on a run/walk :). We are heading home soon. I am so glad we got to get away. I feel recharged for the week ahead. My friend Leslie H. Is going to help me plan my week. I am excited to get an external opinion on things. She raised 4 kids and works at our church so I know she will have good ideas.
