Anniversary Get Away

Adam and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary on Monday Sept 10th.  I can not believe it has already been 7 years since the day I married my best friend.  It feels like forever haha just kidding babe.....but really time has flown by.  I am very very blessed to be married to this man and even more blessed that he gave me a beautiful and amazing little boy.  I honestly couldn't see my life without these two men in it.  THEY MEAN THE WORLD TO ME!!!!!

Wow 7years ago!!!

Ok ok enough of the sappy stuff.......this year Adam and I decided to head off to Rancho Mirage and check out a hotel called Rancho Las Palmas.  We decided to go there because we wanted to bring Gavin along with us and have a little family vacation together and this place was amazing for kids.  It has two water slides, a lazy river pool, beach entry with sand, splash park and even more pools.  Our room looked right over the kids part of the pool it was perfect.

Our was so nice.

So we checked in Monday and headed straight to the pool....Gavin had no fear and jumped right in.  We put some floaties on him for the weekend to make it a little easier for him to swim around.  He did take swim lessons again this year but we wanted to him to have a little more freedom and fun.  After a few hours of swimming we headed back to the room to get ready and go find a place to eat for dinner.  Gavin was so tired from all the swimming we literally stopped at the first place we saw and said lets do it.....we ended up at Old Spaghetti Factory haha love that place....Gavin even loved it cause of the train inside.

Off to the Pool

Dinner time!!!
After dinner we headed back to the hotel so we could get Gavin to bed.  The next morning Adam left early for golf and Gavin and I took advantage of the blackout curtains and slept till 8:30 haha that's sleeping in for me these days.  Well we got up and daddy happened to be coming up to the holes that were by our room so we headed out to see him play the two holes.  Gavin was so excited to see daddy driving in the golf cart hitting the balls.  He even told him to hit the balls in the water hahaha he has no clue that that's not what you do but hey he loved it anyways.  I got this great picture of Gavin watching his daddy.......totally a framer.
Love my boys!!
So Adam left to finish his round and Gavin and I headed off to the now it's only like 9 in the morning haha and we are already to swim the day away.  Usually when we come to Palm Desert we are fighting to get a seat at the pool...well coming the weekend after Labor Day is now the time I am gonna come.  There was maybe 20 people total at the pool and the weather was cooler than home.  It did not get over 90 degrees and the humidity was not bad at all it was wonderful.  We ended up spending over 4 hours in the pool then we headed up to the room and Gavin passed out for a nap.  Adam left and played another round cause they gave him a special in the morning for his anniversary...all he paid was $10 and he could golf all day.  Gavin only slept an hour and half then we headed back down to the pool for another 4 hour s of swimming then we headed off to dinner.

Swimming with daddy!!!

Momma cheesssssssseeeee!!!
Well the next morning I think we were all a bit tired from all the swimming and golfing we woke up a bit early and got ready to go to The Living Desert.  I never knew they had a Zoo out in Palm Desert so we wanted to check it out.  Gavin loves animals so why not check it out.  It was actually larger than I expected and they had a lot of animals.  Gavin got to see the giraffes, ostriches, zebras, camels, long horned sheep, mountain lions, leopards, eagles, snakes, turtles and the list can go on and on.  Also all of the desert gardens and trails.  Below are a few of the pictures I took of the animals Gavin really loved.

We had an amazing little vacation and I can not wait to do it again.....SOON haha.  Can't believe we are already celebrating our 7th anniversary you so much.  Thank you for a wonderful anniversary so blessed to be able to share it with my wonderful boys!!!
