Palm Desert





Here's some of the pics I took from Palm Desert. Palm Desert is about 10-15 miles from Palm Springs. The one of the golf course with the flag and sand traps was the view from the house. The house is the one on the right in the second pic. Of course golf is a big thing down here and my parents go a lot but all we did with my son was putt putt golf. We had a great time and the weather was mostly in the 70's but yesterday it was in the 80's so it was a bummer that we had to leave as the weather was heating up. I took a lot more pics but they are mostly family shots and zoo animals shots for my son.
We went to the desert zoo, swam a lot and went to a fun center. My son had a blast. The only down part was that both of us were still sick with colds but we didn't let that stop us. I wanted to stay longer but we had to get back. I love all the palm trees and there are load of cactus (I got more pics if U want cactusfreek). I like the adobe style buildings and there are some newer cities like La Quinta and Indio that were awesome. It did seem like a lot of traffic down there though.
Well, did get on the scale at home today and up a few pounds. I will go to ww next week and then post about it then. I haven't been putting the effort into the weight loss, especially on vacation but I will go work out today when my son is in school! Hope everyone is doing good on their healthy living even if I am not at the moment!!

Hopw going back to WW helps get you back on track.. and get rid of those few extra pounds that have snuck back on...At least that may help lift your spirit...

Welcome back! Thanks for the beautiful photos. I'm going to Vegas in a few weeks, so they got me all excited for the desert!

holidays are for enjoying oneself, not watching scales! just get back on track and it'll all be good.

i found i didn't really eat more, just the wrong things, which i have to say i was happy about, plus all that booze.... ahhhhhh what can i say? baileys is so calorie loaded!

i hope you have a good week and thanks for the pics, they are great! jelous...

you need to get to Memphis, make sure you can go drinking on Beale Street though, it has to be done. have one at BB Kings for me!

No biggie on the weight gain...you were on vacation. To bad you were sick, but glad to hear you didn't let it get you down.
We are about 2 hours or so from PS, and yesterday and today were HOT. It's suppose to be in the 80s all week. I'm thinking about pulling the skirts out because I couldn't stand the heat at work today.
