a trip to Palm Dessert for some TENNIS!

A few weekends ago we were able to tag along with my parents to Palm Dessert for the tennis tournament. 
I had no idea how big of a deal this sporting event was. 

We got to the hotel late Sunday night and decided we needed a treat so we went down to the lobby restaurant and ordered a sunday. 
It was ridiculously huge! but so good!
Monday morning I got a good workout in (love me a nice hotel gym)
The boys golfed and my mom and I hung out by the pool. 
The weather was so perfect!

That afternoon we headed to the tennis tournament. 
I had no idea that there are like 20 courts and games going on the whole time. 
Some of them require specific tickets but most have general admission seating. 
We even saw Nadal practicing!
Oh and they have good restaurants. We had the most amazing pizza. 
It's kind of like a rich mans/europeans fair. With lots of tents full of samples and tennis gear. But instead of funnel cakes they have fancy coffee and crepes. 
I think I had a stomach ache both nights from eating too much.

The next morning we had breakfast at Wilma and Friedas. It was so yummy!
Then we headed back to the babies. Thanks Kenz and Becs for babysitting. 
Palm Dessert it such a perfect little getaway!

Chase's THIRD Birthday!

Chase turned 3 earlier this month and I totally forgot to post about it!
We went whale watching for his birthday with our friends the Wellmans and saw tons of whales! It was awesome. Chase loved it!
That night I took Chase on a little date to see Zootopia. Our first movie together. He did so well! I think the box of gummy bears helped. 
Sunday was his actual birthday so I made him pancakes for breakfast and then we went to church. We had dinner with our friends and cupcakes (Chase's favorite) for dessert. 
Later that week we did a joint birthday party with Chase's friend Cohen at the park. Chase loved the attention and especially having his own cake :)
