For Luke's big birthday weekend, Aunt Holly treated us to a fun trip to Palm Desert, CA. She had been in L.A. the entire week for work, so we drove up to pick her up Friday morning and head out to the HOT desert.

We spent pretty much all of our outside time in one of the resorts pool (one of them had an awesome water slide). Thankfully the weather was somewhat overcast which made the temps a little more bearable.

Opening his present from Chris and I. He got an iPod Nano and was thrilled to say the least.

Chris had just gotten off ship from his 2nd 3 weeks at sea training for his upcoming deployment. He surprised the kiddos and showed up at our resort on Saturday morning.
Best present EVER!

We had an incredible time. Thanks for the fun trip, Aunt Holly. Made some great memories we will never forget.
