The next morning, Adele woke us up at 6am (After sleeping for eight glorious hours through the night!!) She and I walked with Daddy over to the golf course. It was so beautiful and not too hot yet. We said bye to him and we went back to the room to hang out while he played a round.

So what do two girls do when they are by themselves for a morning? PHOTOSHOOOOOT!

And my favorite of the day…
Oh my gosh, how is she mine?! She’s so beautiful!

We played and napped (both of us!) until we got a text that daddy was on the 17th hole! So we headed back over to the clubhouse to meet him for lunch.

It was definitely warm out, but I kept the baby in the shade!

I wish she could have seen how beautiful it was outside… but we’ll have to come back in the winter when the heat isn’t so bad!


Mmmm Burgers!

We splurged and ordered fried dill pickle spears! (I know, we’re getting crazy over here!)

We chatted for a couple of hours overlooking the golfcourse and taking turns holding the baby. It was so nice to get away from home and escape our routine for a bit.

She loves her daddy!

Family picture!!

Irving played a second round of golf in the afternoon (don’t ask me how he was able to be out in that sun all day long?!). Adele and I went back to the room while she napped and I watched trash tv. No shame.

Once he was done and the baby was rested, we jumped in the car and headed to downtown Palm Springs for dinner.

We walked the streets and did some people watching. So many awesome shops and restaurants down there.

When we got engaged, we were staying in Palm Springs, so it brought back a lot of memories for us!



Even though there were a ton of great-looking restaurants, we ended up at The Old Spaghetti Factory, which is one of my FAVORITE restaurants ever. EVER! (Every meal comes with a salad, bread, a drink… AND DESSERT!) Adele was a little fussy and we took turns pushing her stroller around the parking lot… you win some, you lose some, I guess. To her defense, it was a late dinner and she was DEFINITELY ready for bed. Whoops!

When we got pregnant, our biggest concern was if we’d be able to keep up the pace at which we like to travel… but this weekend really gave us the confidence we needed to know that life doesn’t end when you have kids. Travel is a huge hobby of ours and we’re so excited to share it with Adele now. It just keeps getting better!

Got any other kid-friendly So-Cal weekend getaway destinations?

    Looks like a picture perfect weekend. You’ve got an excellent tiny traveler there! 🙂 Love that dress on her! P.S. seriously… how does Irving play golf in the desert in July?!?! And P.P.S. now I *really* want fried dill pickle spears!

  2. Great post! I hope to do the same someday. Ever been to Pasadena? It’s not a real trip destination, but there’s a Langham hotel here that accommodates kids. Lots of restaurants a short car/shuttle ride away. San Diego might be another option…
