Palm Springs

I know most people think we make rash decisions and are crazy. But who cares! I have fun and so do the kids. Well, a few weeks ago we decided to take an impromptu day trip to Palm Springs to try out our new 'Big Van'. Since it was 110* in the heat of July we took the Aerial Tram to the top of the mountain where it was a cool 75*. The kids hiked and explored, then we had dinner and headed home.
