We took a 3 day family vacation to Palm Springs. Because it was so hot, I stayed in the room with Aria most of the time during the day. It might sound funny, but I loved that! She slept most of the time, and I had a lot of peace and quiet because Rich had the other 7 kids at the pool the entire time! I had a lot of time to just read and rest and work on the kids' school curriculum and lesson plans for the new school year.
I love this group shot of the kids. We take one like this every year. We've been going to this hotel for about 8 years now...there's always a new child in this group shot!! Bummer that Tony is missing from the photo this year...it seems incomplete without him. He didn't go with us on this trip.
