My next adventure

Last weekend I flew into San Diego on Saturday.  I got picked up at the airport by Michele in her cute little convertible Porsche.  It was a fun drive back to her house. The next morning we drove up to Indian Wells, which is right outside of Palm Springs. 
We stopped for a yummy lunch at Manhattan in the Desert.  I got this HUGE sandwich. 
 
We had a handstand war in the pool.  Samantha had great form! 
 
 It was warm and perfect. 
 

That evening was gorgeous.  These pictures don't do it justice.
 
 We ordered room service that night and watched some movies in the hotel room.
 
This was the beautiful view from our hotel room.
 
That morning we went to the BNP Paribas open.  We went last year and had a ton of fun.  This year didn't disappoint either. 
 
I love these girls.

David Ferrer.  So cute!

Caroline Wozniacki

My favorite tennis player, Rafa Nadal.

I flew back home Tuesday morning.  I love getting away for a few days and seeing Michele and Samantha.

March beginnings

I LOVE March.  We are having beautiful weather, Spring is right around the corner.  We made it through our very mild winter. 
 I attended a few senate meetings for my policy class and met up with my cute friend Jenni that works with the Governor.
 Shelby had her eyes rechecked again to make sure that there was no more retinal damage.  Good news was that there was no visible damage, bad news was that her eye drastically changed for the worst again.  Her prescription is now at a -24.50.  She was able to see about 20/60 with corrections. 
 Tucker came with us to the appointment so we all went to lunch at my favorite place El Matador!

 Tucker made this amazing tent for the kids.
 Shelby got sick again.  A week of on and off fevers of 104+.  That girl.
 A very cool thing happened, Shelby was chosen out of her school with a few other kids to have lunch with the mayor.  They picked them up in an ambulance, ate lunch and rode home in a police car.  She had the best time and I'm so proud of her.
 Silly girl.
 I went to parents and pastries at the kids school.  It was fun to spend some time with them in the morning.
 I rallied at the capital for mental health awareness and addiction. 
 It was a gorgeous day to walk around the capital.
 I went out to lunch after with a friend.
 We also have been enjoying the park weather.  It's so good for my soul!
Look how happy she is to be at the park!
