I got to join Mike on a weekend getaway to Palm Desert in CA for an ultrasound course that he was participating in. Grandpa Al and Grandma Lorene came to watch the kids while we were gone. We stayed at the JW Marriott and had the most glorious weekend. The conference was only in the afternoons on Saturday and Sunday so there was plenty of time to be together. The hotel was AMAZING! The lobby was incredible and the hotel grounds were beautiful. The weather was in the upper 80's the entire time we were there. We spent some of our time playing mini golf at the hotel and the rest of the time we laid by the pool. On Saturday and Monday morning we ran 2 miles up the road to a wonderful breakfast place called Si Bon and then leisurely walked back to the hotel holding hands and talking. While Mike was at his course I got to spend some time at the spa getting a massage and enjoyed the scented infused saunas and the hot tub. I spent a good couple of hours there. For Valentines dinner we ate at the Rockwood Grill restaurant at the hotel and had a very yummy 5 course meal. We ate outside right next to the water and could even see Venus up in the sky. It was a perfect night. On the last day after checking out we headed over to the spa so we could spend the last few hours over there. I don't remember the last time I have ever been so relaxed. It was the most wonderful weekend away with my sweet husband!
