The first four days were spent in Palm Springs, and even though it was triple digit hot, it was incredibly pretty out there. We were lucky enough to have my mom for the whole trip, but my brother joined us on our Palm Springs trip – Ronin was in heaven during this part of the trip. Literal heaven.
All we did in Palm Springs is swim, nap, eat food, and swim some more. The first day we were there it was 121° – too freaking hot for us. But, we survived…barely. We did have a lot of fun, though. I mean we are already talking about celebrating Christmas 2018 there.
I think Ronin and Thurman loved being in Palm’s the most, though. They literally swam, ate, and napped all freaking day – especially Thurman. I mean, Ro swam a lot, too, but Thurman was a FISH out in that pool. He was a natural – even with the floaties. Micah, my mom, and I were talking about how he loved the water more than Ro at that age. He just knew how to kick and swim – carefree…like his mama. I think it really lit a fire under our asses to put Ronin in a swim team and sign Thurman up for some lessons.
I think had we let them, they would have just swam and swam and swam. They probably would have just napped out there. Whether it would have been on those layout float things or the long chairs – they would have slept out there. Fortunately for us, they napped pretty well in our bed and allowed their little bodies to rest up.
