Palm Desert

We spent a really, really nice week with Grandpa Jay and Grandma Peggy in Palm Desert earlier this month. The weather wasn't quite as warm as we had hoped for the first half of the week, but it was still much nicer than it was here! Timothy really enjoyed getting to swim almost every afternoon, and he especially enjoyed the fact that the condo where we stayed was right on the fairway. He loved watching the golfers, but he loved practicing his own swing even more.

"Pay goff, papa? Nice hit!"

Grandpa Jay, babysitting:

One of the coolest things we did while we were there, though, was go to The Living Desert, which is a desert-themed zoo. The absolute highlight of that outing was getting to feed a giraffe. As in, Timothy, Grandma and I each got to have a piece of food in our hand that we put directly into the giraffe's mouth! Timothy loved it, and would've liked to go again, but by the time we got back in line, the giraffe was full and wandered off.

None of us wanted to come home at the end of the week. In fact, I'd go back right now if I could! :)
