we made a little trip to l.v. to escape all this dreary not-very-springish weather. i very much needed some sunshine, pool-time, and heat. it was very refreshing. we had a suite at the hotel & took full advantage of the swimming pools. the boys loved playing in the water & sand. we even had a surprise visit by our favorite nana, grandpa-great, & grama cindy! coop enjoyed seeing excalibur & the luxor most. he also thought it was pretty neat that our hotel was made of gold. t.j. wasn't very into our trip, his favorite part was mommy (go figure).
