Palm Desert Part 2-Traditions.

We have done this vacation every May for a few years now and so we have stumbled into a few traditions. Tim and I love the second-hand stores (more than you can imagine books, perfect cashmere sweaters, sundresses galore...) so we always try to make time for this.
The desert resort areas are overwhelmingly inhabited by cottontail rabbits. They are precious and surprisingly unphased by human activity. They will, however, hop like hell whilst a certain 5 year-old redhead chases them straight toward an inevitable heart attack. The Littles know the vacation has begun once they've successfully chased any bunnies from our lanai to the surrounding shelter of shrubs.
I feel spoiled rotten when mid-week Michelle drives out to the desert to spend the afternoon/evening with us.
Tim and I decided we should encourage time away for each of us. He golfed an afternoon away and I stumbled rather sickly to my favorite shops on El Paseo. I love the desert garden path between shops.
And the best? Well, the BEST is last. Angela, Ricardo, Addie and Lucas come the last weekend and we celebrate COUSIE TIME with glow sticks and intense Lalaloopsy pretend play.
