The Oasis Pool at Casino Morongo

Mommy and Aunt Stacy got gift certificates to the spa at Morongo for Christmas/Birthday. When we booked our appointments, free use of the pool all day was part of the spa experience. Kevin has a connection at the hotel so he was able to get the kids, Uncle Gordon and Granny wristbands for use of the pool for the day too. We went down and got there about 10, with Granny getting there shortly after. Eric and Elizabeth saw we were there and came down to join us for the day too. Stacy and Gordon got there shortly after that. We got a group of chairs in the shade and a bunch in the sun between the pool and the kiddie pool. We also spent a little time on the lazy river and one or two trips down the slide.
Love this... with all 3.....
Lazy river time....
Slide time
Cheyenne loved it and splashed away.
Reece fell asleep and we moved her to the shade where she took about an hour nap.
The kiddie pool was just the right height for her to stand in.Cousins....
Reece wanted to hold her.
It was a great day. We had lunch by the pool and spa treatments. The kids had a blast and were so worn out by the time we got home. We hope to do it again soon.

A kick start.....

to a three day weekend! Friday when we got home, we went over to the Lloyds for dinner. A good dinner with good friends. Afterward, we took the girls to get ice cream at Rite Aid because they have the best ice cream! The girls were in heaven. It was so cute to watch them. Even people walking by got a kick out of them.Cailey got Mint Chocolate Chip, Brooklyn had Rainbow, and Reece had Chocolate Chip.
A nice way to spend a warm summer evening and a great start to a long weekend.

The ugly face

The girls love to make faces. The one where they pull their eye skin down has been dubbed the ugly face. They think it is so funny to make this face and will do it just to get a laugh.
Had to include a sweet sister picture.....

Ten on Tuesday

1. Not so much is going on here. Just getting ready for a hot summer. It got up into the 80's today and its been getting warmer each day.....

2. I have to have a small surgery on July 8th. I have an IUD that is stuck.... fun stuff.

3. Still waiting for CT scan results on my ear...I did call today, but they have not received them yet.

4. I cannot wait for vacation at the end of July. We are going to camp at the Kern River with the girls. Kevin is going with our friends for 9 days.... we will probably just meet him up there for 4 or 5 days. We will see when the time is closer. I also want to go to the beach the first day or so of my vacation.

5. NKOTB and BSB...... here come Shannon, Breanne and I, July 6th. Like Shannon says "It's my second grade dream!" Note: the BSB was the first concert Shannon and I went to. We saw them from a luxury box at the Pond in Anaheim.

6. I just got the girls thank you notes mailed out. It took forever but I am thankful its done.

7. I love Etsy. I just like to go on and look.... some things you can tell are complete crap but others... people have some crazy crafting talent.

8. In a little over a week, we will have been married 5 years. 5 years! I cannot believe how fast time has flown! I feel so lucky to have such a great husband.

9. I really need a vacation. and no, going to Vegas in October is not vacation. I want to go some where tropical and pretty. Where I can lay in the sun.....not Hawaii though... some where else... I don't know where though....

10. My only day off is Thursday. I am going to hang out at home and really... stay home. I am only leaving when the bug guy comes to spray and then I am coming back. Hopefully its hot so the girls and I can play in the water outside and enjoy the day together.....

Conversations between sisters

On the way home in the car today this was the conversation. They will go back and forth, asking and answering the exact same way, over and over.

Cailey- "Reece, what is today?"
Reece- "My birthday"
C- "How old are you?"
R- "Fouah"
C- "Who's coming to see you?"
R- "Jack!"
C- "What are you going to say to him?"
R- "HI!"


On the way home today, Cailey asked if she could wear her bathing suit when we got home. I said sure and maybe if she asked Daddy nicely, he might turn on the sprinklers for her. When we got home she ran right to Kevin and asked, nicely, if he could turn on the sprinklers. When it came time to actually do it, she wanted Reece to go first. Then she ran through......
and the fun began!
Reece thought it was fun to stick her foot right next to the sprinkler after watching her sister do it.

A beautiful park day

Because I had two days off in a row, the girls and I took full advantage. After Disneyland yesterday, we got together with Shannon and Brooklyn for lunch and then playing in the park. It was a beautiful day, in the low 70's with a slight breeze. Perfect and not hot. The girls had a blast. They kept climbing up the slide the wrong way, over and over. Reece loved hanging and swinging on the bar above the slide.Brooklyn was a little monkey too.
Cailey just wanted to twist herself up in the swing and then let it unravel, spinning around and around.
Cailey was also a good big sister. Teaching Reece how to swing on the big girl swing and giving her gentile pushes.
All tired out and ready to go home.
