For 4 years in a row, the family and I have taken a trip down to Rancho Mirage in the Palm Springs area of Southern California for the kids Spring Break. They have a few hotels down here that are built around waterslide parks and for 5 days we'll hang at the pool, endlessly hit the waterslides, swim, eat amazing Mexican food, while Genevra and I drink vodka-Mojitos and Blue Moons w/ orange.
It is one of life's little treasures.
I really enjoyed this break, been stressed out. I have a bad habit of letting Machine Head consume my life (and it can be all all-consuming) so from time to time I go "off the grid". Turn off the phone, not check email 100 times a day, not answer texts 300 times a day. So while I'm writing this journal, (this is something I enjoy and don't consider work), I'm on vacation, full journals will resume next week, promise!
My son Wyatt said something today that I liked the sentiment of, we were walking back to the pool, we both had no flip-flops, we're barefoot, the ground was hot, and he said, "Dada, we have to walk in the shadows"
Yes we do.
