We jetted off to Palm Springs to enjoy a little fun in the hot sun this weekend to celebrate Labor Day. It was so nice to spend time with our dear friends, whom which we do not nearly see enough of. Hera was just mesmerized by her friend Hudson; I don’t know if it was because he was older that she looked to him with such awe or because of his cuteness, my guess would be the latter.
With lots of sunscreen, ice water, and pool floats – we spent the majority of our time relaxing in the pool taking in plenty of Vitamin D. Hera did so well in the heat; I, on the other hand, found myself making excuses to take frequent trips into the air conditioned house. I did survive, but my heart melted seeing the kids interact with each other; from the sharing of breakfast to random forehead kisses, having the children of life-long friends becoming friends themselves is such an amazing thing to witness.
Our evenings were filled with food, fort building and Frozen (only a half a dozen times!) and once the kids went down we chatted over wine and a little Cards Against Humanity. I honestly have not laughed that hard in a long time. We chatted for hours about how exhilarating this whole experience of parenthood is; the ups, the downs, the in betweens, and the amount of love and pride you feel. I couldn’t have imagined a better getaway and we’re already planning our next trip.
