It was bound to happen sooner or later… Baby’s first weekend away! In honor of our third anniversary, we decided to sneak away to Palm Springs for a couple of days in the desert! It would be Adele’s first time in a hotel! (Gotta start em’ while they’re young, right?) We packed our van full of everything we could possibly need for our family of three and hit the road. She did great and slept the whole two-hour drive there.

We stayed at the La Quinta Resort. We picked it because it looked pretty comfortable and it had two golf courses on the property for dad (priorities!) It was a little far from the main attractions in Palm Springs, but since it was going to be so hot out, we weren’t planning on venturing out much with Adele anyways.

The hotel had a rustic-chic feel. It is pretty old (built in 1926), but it had a lot of character and it was clean and comfortable, so I’d stay there again for sure.


Irving and I have stayed in a LOT of hotels over the years…. but this was the first time our end tables looked like this while we were there! Funny how things change when you have a baby!

When we got settled into the room, we set up her pack n’ play for her to sleep in. When time came for a nap, I tried to lie her down in it and she was fussing a bit. So I put her on our ridiculously comfy king sized bed… and she passed out.

Uh-oh, we better watch out! She knows a good thing when she sees it! HA!

We spent the first afternoon just hanging out and enjoying the quiet time together.

Once the sun set and the temperature dropped (100* down to 80* !?!), we headed out for a delayed anniversary dinner. Cheers to three wonderful years of marriage and to our new addition!

Water for the breast-feeding mama! Cheers!
I spy a quiet sleeping baby in the background!

Table-Made guacamole! Don’t mind if we do! I seriously could (and did) eat it with a spoon. OHMYGOSH So good.

After dinner, we enjoyed an evening stroll around the resort. The mountains were pretty silhouettes in the sky. So romantic and beautiful.

Day 2 coming in the next post! But first… one more picture of my little girl…just because!
