~ Idyllwild~

We decided we would go to Idillwild for the day. We took the beautiful "Pines to Palms" Highway. It took about 1 hour 10 mins to drive there. We started at 36 degrees Celsius and 500ft in the desert and went up to 5000 ft and 16 degrees.

Beautiful view of Palm Springs from the viewpoint

We did this hike....a 6 mile loop through the San Jacinto mountains.

What a great day!

Wet n Wild

The other day we decided to go to the Wet n Wild water park in Palm Springs. It was a super hot day, so perfect for enjoying all the rides etc..

We spent ALL day trying out all the rides. A few of the rides you had to use tubes (this red one was one of our favourites!)

The Lazy River was so relaxing and fun!

The wave pool was amazing and the waves were almost 7 feet tall!

The yellow run was like a "death drop". Only Shae and Trav were brave enough to try it!!

This funnel ride was our favourite (except for carrying the heavy tubes up to the top)

Funnel ride....lots of screams!!
SUCH an awesome day!!

We rented this beautiful home in a lovely neighbourhood for our vacation this year.

Back yard

The pool area is just a short drive/ bike ride away.

The pool is around 27 degrees and "oh so lovely"!!

There is a sand volleyball court, a basketball area and a field where the boys can play baseball etc...

A very relaxing first few days :)
