The hills are greening up, the snow is melting off the mountains, the temp is getting a little bit warmer and we are looking forward to all the beauty that continues to unfold. Happy summer, everyone!

I love a "bonus visit"--those trips that just kinda work out even though we hadn't planned a get-together. Even though it was short, it was fabulous!
Here are a few photos of the resort. We got a good deal on Sniqueaway and were mostly pleased with our stay. Meal service in the restaurant was super slow and not the best food but otherwise everything was great. (I was a little disappointed that my "fondue" was chunks of cheese in a bowl. When I asked about it, I was told, "we just CALL it fondue." Really? Shouldn't you tell your customers that up front?!) But there were certainly lots of things for the kids to do, which was our main objective.
Sarah, Suanne and I took the kids to The Living Desert one day while the guys were out playing golf. It was SO hot in Palm Springs and we thought this was one of those wildlife parks where you could drive through in your car. But no, that was not the case! We started out walking but soon got pretty overwhelmed with the heat and paid a few bucks to get off and on a cart driving through the park.
