28 on the 28th
saturday was my "golden birthday" when i turned 28 on the 28th. jonathan, ollie and i celebrated by spending the day in palm springs.
we went to the miramonte resort & spa, where i was treated to a wonderful 60 minute massage, while jonathan and ollie hung out by the pool:) it felt so great just to relax. i could've spent the whole day in the spa. i joined jonathan and ollie soaked up some sun and splashed around in the pool for a few hours.
after some snacks, drinks and fun in the sun, we took a walk around the grounds of the resort and snapped a few photos before heading out to lunch. ollie was gettting a little restless, so we drove around very slowly for a little bit in order for ollie to get a good nap in.
we ate lunch at "tylers" and enjoyed some good burgers, fries and a vanilla shake. then headed to the aerial tramway for a trip up to the top of the mountain above palm springs. the weather was in the 80's down the mountain and supposedly it was around 48 on top of the mountain, but it felt more of about 65. and as you can see we were fine in shorts and short sleeves...although there was some snow for ollie to discover for the first time:) i love california and having the beach, palm trees and warm weather so close to the mountians, pine trees and snow!
we then drove back to my parents house where i unwrapped a present. and i was really excites to get a staple/nail gun! does that make me sound old that i was excited about that present?? i also got 28 mini snickers-yummmy and then we ate a ice cream cake from baskin robbins with my favorite flavor- gold medal ribbon, so i can't be too old to enjoy candy and ice cream:)
all in all it was a fun day!
