Palm Springs {La Quinta Resort}

Instagram: the boys checking into the hotel
Our little escape to Palm Spring this last week is already a distant memory it seems.  We arrived home Sunday night...somehow it already feels like a month ago!

As always, I took lots of pictures...I thought I'd break them up into a couple posts.  We had SO much fun...it all started with my husband Mike's brother and my SIL (his wife) inviting us.  A big group of their friends go every year and do a big golf tournament and everyone is told to invite whoever they want- this is the first year we were able to go, I was finally not pregnant, about to give birth or nursing.  Some of our good friends here in AZ also went so we drove out together- which made the trip that much more fun!

As soon as we got there the boys sped off to their first tee time bc we were cutting it close.  We had only eaten food you could get from the gas station on the way out bc we were in such a hurry to get the boys to their tee time, so Ashley and I were desperate to get some real food.
We sat down at the first restaurant we saw on the property, Twenty6...it was delicious!! *More pictures of our food below...
Walking around the resort was like we were living in a magazine!
As a mom, I don't think there is anything better then crisp clean sheets and a nicely made bed all prepared for you that you yourself did not have to prepare...
I loved all the Spanish detail all throughout the resort...
there was even an elephant there to greet us!
brought some heavy literature...
loved all the details throughout the resort...
our wedge salad
even the ketchup was homemade
the french dip, divine!
loved the unique accents even at the restaurant...
finished off lunch with this delicious Peanut Butter pie!
I walked around that afternoon and snapped pictures of the magazine lifestyle we were going to soak in for the next 3 days...
lights strung all over the property to give it a gorgeous evening glow...
each grouping of three casita areas had it's own pool along with 3 main pools...
fun little gathering areas were set up all throughout the property...




there were a handful of restaurants and shops at the property as well

loved the potted plants everywhere as well...












every morning there were what seemed like dozens of landscapers all over the resort trimming and planting and scraping and digging and dusting and sweeping to make everything look truly like a magazine- loved that!

that's it for now- more pictures tomorrow...pictures maybe with people in them next time ;)  So glad we went on this trip!!  Thanks to the Banners and the Kearns for pushing us to go- can't wait to go back!!
