Beach Day!

We have had unbelievably hot weather the last few weeks. On May 2nd it was 30C and we went to the beach! It was so hot!

Jakob tested out the water, but it was a little too cold. There were kids swimming in it though!

Levi and Zack played some tennis, too!

Wolf Willow Stairs

Last week my friend Debbie took me on a 7km hike through the river valley. Then we also climbed 380 stairs. It was difficult, but so fun! The view from the very top was beautiful.

I love spending time with my bestie :)

Levi's Birthday Celebrations

On Levi's birthday we had our family over to help us celebrate. The kids played, Levi opened his gifts and we ate cake! A great way to celebrate our special 10 year old!

Levi loved his jar of pickles from Oma & Opa!

Las Vegas & the Hoover Dam

Thursday morning we packed up and left Palm Springs. We wanted to take our time driving home, so we decided to stop in Las Vegas for a night. First stop, the Hoover Dam!

We started out by walking across the new bridge. It's huge!

The view was pretty amazing, you could see the whole area.

We walked along the side of the Hoover Dam and read all the info. The boys enjoy looking and reading about the engineering of it all.

It was pretty hot outside, too!

We walked across the dam from the Nevada side to the Arizona side.

It's a very beautiful area!

After we were done at the Hoover Dam we drove to Las Vegas. We checked into our hotel and then went on the High Roller. (The High Roller is a 550 foot tall giant Ferris wheel that overlooks the Las Vegas strip.)

The boys loved to see across Las Vegas and all the different hotels on the strip. The High Roller has the best view of the area!

After the High Roller we went out for dinner and then walked down the strip to the M&M store. It was a pretty late night!

Palm Springs: Tahquitz Canyon Hike

Wednesday morning we went on a hike with friends to the Tahquitz Canyon. It was such a pretty hike! The path was easy to walk and there was lots to see.

There were a few "look-out" spots along the way:

You could see a lot of Palm Springs from this rock:

In the middle of the loop was a waterfall:

and a few fun climbing spots:

On the way back we stopped for a little rest:

We all enjoyed this fun hike!
