Quick Hello from Palm Springs
november 11, 2018
Hello friends! I just wanted to say a quick hello from Palm Springs! The kids and I made the trek out here last weekend (16 hours in one day, I’ll go ahead and give myself a pat on the back for that!) and we’ve been hangin’ out with my parents. My brother and his family were also out here visiting, so we took a big family photo! Poor Randy is still back home in Colorado working his day job (boooooo) so he wasn’t able to be here with us (but he’s flying out tomorrow, yay!). We’ve literally been hanging out, drinking coffee, watching movies, playing poker and Clue, crafting (there’s glitter everywhere!) and spending as much time NOT OUTSIDE as possible. It’s been roughly 108-110* every day and I honestly wonder how we ever lived here. #deathbysummer
I’ve been sharing some photos of our fun on our family Instagram, and trying NOT to work that much … it’s such a struggle for me to not be constantly on the go, but I’m trying! If you aren’t following our family Instagram (@thedurhamzoo), we’d love for you to join us! It’s all unscripted, straight out of the iPhone, real life stuff there (and not curated a single bit) … I’m trying to be better at taking my own family’s photos. Anyone else struggle with that?! Ugh. It’s like mechanics having the worst cars, why is that!??
And a photo of all the grandkids together … I just love my two little nieces to bits and pieces!
This weekend we’re heading out to Long Beach for Ryan + Emily‘s backyard wedding (can’t wait!) and then we’re headed for Part 2 of our family vacation – the Grand Canyon and Antelope Canyon. I’m SO EXCITED!!! I’ll be sure to share some Stories on our business Instagram (@randyandashleystudios) as well as same-day shots on our family Instagram … stay tuned!
