Because me and Aaron just can’t seem to sit still, we decided to do a little staycation in good ole Palm Springs! This was out first trip together with Callan so it made it extra special and so much fun!
We kicked off our getaway off with non other than The Cabazon Dinosaurs, I mean it would just be wrong if we didn’t! Of course, there are is the giant Tyrannosaurus and Apatosaurus you can see when you drive past, but what people don’t really know is that it is actually a whole attraction!
Inside there is a pathway full of all kinds of dinosaurs and alligators, fossils digs for the kids as well as mining for gold! The best part though, is the gift shop. It has a bunch of robotic, moving dinosaurs inside and all kinds of goodies. Not to mention its AIR CONDITIONED! *praise hands*
By the time we were done with the dinosaurs, we were all pretty hungry and ready for dinner. We showered, got cleaned up and headed to the cutest restaurant downtown named Birba.
We shared a couple of pizzas and pastas which were all really good, but I highly recommend the Margarita pizza and the Tagliatelle pasta.
After, we ended the night with a little dip in the pool!
If you guys haven’t been to Kings Highway located in the Ace Hotel, you are missing out my friends. It was so cute, and the people were so friendly!
Being the ice cream lover that I am, I needed to get my fix at Ice Cream & Shop(pe) just next to Arrive Hotel (another one on my list of places to stay).
But let’s be real, the only real way to heat that desert heat is the pool!
We stayed at The Saguaro, where the colors are everywhere and pool floats are welcome!
Killin’ time before dinner and wearing out the little miss…
Callan would not go down for a nap, even after all day playing in the pool so we decided to just let her run around and really tire her out. We hit the big grassy areas by the pool and played around for a little. We wanted our last day there to be super mellow and not have to go anywhere for dinner, so we eat at the Mexican restaurant El Jefe in our hotel. Which ended up being a good decision because Callan passed out right after we got our water ha! So, we took our food to the room, and watched the bachelorette. It was perfect.
Remember how I said the King’s Highway was really good? Well, it was so good we had it for lunch the next day! Callan wasn’t opposed either, i mean look at that happy face!
& those little photo bombin’ peace sign fingers…
Grabbed some Koffi an strolled through down town before we headed home!
& that’s how we do Palm Springs! We had such a great little staycation, when we were packing up our stuff Callan asked if we could live there forever! I would say that’s a successful trip haha! & we already can’t wait for many more to come this Summer! Where do you think we should we go next?!
