We spent five nice, warm days with the family in Palm Springs, CA. The grandchildren swam every day, and many of the parents swam and played in the pool also. (Of course we ALL loved the hot tub!) We went on a couple of hikes and enjoyed a restful stay. Ron and I spent almost a week with each daughter before returning to snow and more snow! We even managed to see an old canoe buddy, Mark Archer, but his wife, Roxie stayed home to "dog sit". Hopefully next time! Now we are getting ready for an overseas adventure to the Galapagos and Machu Pichu! Then I can think about planting some vegetables in the sun room and putting spring flowers out, once the tulips and daffodils are spent, that is..
