Indian Wells Vacation 9/20-9/23

Well we got a new camera so now I can start putting new pics up! We got it during this vacation so we don't have pictures until the last day, but nevertheless...we did get a camera! Friday, September 19th to September 23rd: Keven's Mom and Dad and little sister Kiley came down from Utah because Bruce had a meeting. They came down to our place in Costa Mesa and we stayed with them at the Hilton Waterfront in Huntington Beach. It was so beautiful. It was an oceanfront hotel room. We were really lucky. That Saturday we went to the beach and went surfing and running. That night we headed out to Indian Wells, near Palm Springs. Bruce had a meeting up there so we were able to take some time off from work to be with the family. It was so nice to see them! We are very grateful for those times we get to spend with each other!This is outside the window at The Renaissance in Indian Wells where we stayed. It was SO beautiful. It was 100 degrees and very nice!We got to the hotel Saturday night and just went walking around to check out the hotel. Sunday we went to church and Monday when Bruce had meetings Keven, Carla, Kiley and myself just went to the gym and then hung out at the pool all day. It was so nice. I even got a tan! woo hoo! Keven, Kiley and I found a beach ball and were playing with that for awhile. It was such beautiful weather! That night we bought this camera and went out to a very nice restaurant called "Flemings." It was so dang good...thanks Bruce's company! :)Tuesday, Keven and Bruce went golfing. I know Keven was so excited to spend time with his dad which I was happy for! After they came back, they accompanied us at the pool where Carla, Kiley and myself were hanging out at! Keven always has so much fun with Kiley. He had so much fun throwing her in the air. It looked like fun so I made him try to throw me...didn't quite get as high! haha! I think I drowned him in the process but that's okay! :) I love this shot! That was even somewhat on her way down!Here's Kiley coming down into the water. She is a little fish for sure! She can be in the water all day...just like her brother!

When a son and dad get together, you better expect wrestling! I love Kiley trying to help Bruce get Keven..haha! Good job Ki!
During the "WWF championship" Kev squilled for a little bit. We were wondering what happend and then realized that Bruce took a chunk out of his skin! The "claw" apparently got him! The sad part is that I stabbed him with my finger nails the day before! We aim to please! :)
This was a very much needed trip! We are so grateful that we were able to spend time with some of the family! We love you guys so much and are so blessed to have you in our lives! Thanks again for letting us come stay with you guys!

This made me nostalgic--we lived in Palm Desert, right at the edge of Indian Wells. I miss it!
