Dave and I just spent a week in Palm Springs - without the kids.  It was so nice to float in the pool, sleep in, read magazines and do absolutely nothing - but we missed our kids SO MUCH.  B & Z stayed at home with my Aunt and Uncle, every time we phoned home (which was a lot) the kids would either squeal with joy or cry hysterically.    At 2-1/2 and 1-1/2 they are just too young to understand where we went and I'm sure a week to them felt like a month.
So as great as it was to feel the sun shine on my skin and rest my very pregnant self, I found myself panicking about my kids and their feelings. I'm such a worrier now. Know what I mean?  We got back late Friday night, I spent Saturday afternoon at Children's Hospital Emergency with Zoë, all is good now. Beckett is now very sick, he has a temperature and is super congested. Poor bugs.  I really don't see us going on vacation without them anytime soon!  
I love this picture!  This massive cactus was just outside the front door of our friend's house where we stayed...it's awesome.
