we just returned home from a quick few days in palm springs california! we flew straight there after our time in utah since eleanor was still on winter break from school and sunshine is never a bad idea (although looks like nyc was crazy warm in our absence with a cold front coming in as we return. lol. love you too, new york.)
something we’ve never done before and that has always been on our palm spring to-do list is to visit the cabazon dinosaurs! we were able to climb to the top of the t-rex and sit inside his mouth, we did some panning for special stones and rocks, the kids each found a dinosaur egg hidden in the sand (and got to turn it in for a prize), and enjoy conrad’s impromptu “rawrrrrrr!”‘s and “ahhhh!”‘s as he’d run towards them but also run away from them within the same breath. haha, he wasn’t totally sure at times if this outing was fun or frightening. the sweetest little guy.
see? here he is running back towards me after he realized maybe it’s a little bit scary after all. ;)
also. why is my baby half my size in this photo?!?! since turning two in december, he has seriously just grown up so much. every day is so bittersweet.
and then this cutie who also looks like he’s a teenager these days. oh my baby samson! please stop growing up so fast!
i think one of the sweetest parts of our time wandering the grounds was hearing eleanor and samson randomly share little bits of knowledge about dinosaurs to each other or to me. i can’t believe how much they know! more than i do about their dinosaurs, that is for sure.
panning for precious stones and rocks!
this. means. so. much. to. me.
ok. i had a lot of fun, too.
climbed all the way to the top of the t-rex and found ourselves trapped in his mouth!
digging for “dine-soar” eggs!
i’ll share more from our trip to palm springs soon! we got to create something fun for airbnb while we were there, and can’t wait to share it with you all soon. you guys know how much we love making our travel videos, and palm springs was an extra beautiful destination to get to have some adventures in together.
ps. our last trip to palm springs before conrad was born when i was a blonde and E and S were teeny tiny RIGHT HERE, and that one time at the bnp paribas open in palm springs when josh and i got to sit on the court with the sports photographers and see novak djokovic play! (still one of my favorite memories!)
