A Weekend Getaway

My best friend (the bride) and I planned one last 'single gal' hurrah for her. AKA an excuse to go away for a weekend. We went to the hotel out in the desert where we went for 5 years when we were in high school/college. Our tradition was to stay a night in the 5 star resort and spend the afternoon poolside. After sufficiently baking ourselves (cautiously to avoid tan lines and severe burns for the wedding that is in single digits from now) we get dressed up and head to a Japanese Steak House down the road. My mother happily volunteered to watch my little guy so that I could lounge poolside stationary and not running around chasing around Ace. My mom and Ace joined us for dinner and then Ace stayed the night with us.

The view from our balcony.

The pool was wonderful. The drinks ended up being free (I told them to charge them to our room and they failed to do so, yippee!) The weather was perfect on Sunday afternoon, great sun to tan in but not dripping in pools of sweat. The water was refreshing. The dinner was amazing as always. Ace did great and loved the hotel room. He hogged the bed in great fashion. In the morning we headed down and Ace got to swim. He got his first taste of sand. He wasn't a fan. It was a bit chilly by So Cal standards, but for the NW standards it was a-ok. Ace was chilly after swimming for over an hour. After swimming we checked out of the hotel and headed home. It was a great trip.

Looks like you had a wonderful time and Aiden looks adorable in the pool and wrapped up in the towel with you. Can't wait to see the pictures from the wedding.
