Home now from the 3 day whirlwind ...
the 2nd annual Mother-Daughter get away. More here & here.
The tradition stared last year, here.

Cheryl & Erin, 1979

Our families have been together for almost 40 years.
Both girls call both Moms, Mom.
And both Moms claim both daughters.

Carole, 2014

Carole and I have been close friends for all those years. here & here

So now, you know the cast of characters, a bit of history,
let me rundown what we fit into three days!

Day 1
Thursday morning Erin (aka WW) drove us to Palm Springs!

Lunch at the downtown original Las Casuelas, perfect!
Followed by shopping on Palm Canyon Drive.

Then a few hours at Palm Springs Art Museum  *
(* extensive museum photos will be in tomorrow's blog)

 Time to check into Omni's Rancho Las Palmas for two nights.
Dinner reservations at Tommy Bahama's!

A leisurely meal and a lot of laughter.

Followed by some Palm Desert shopping then back to the hotel.

Day 2

Each morning started with tea delivered to get us going.

Brunch reservations at Il Corso

Next pool time for a few hours.

Room time for rest & then reservations at the Yardhouse.

We were there in time for Happy Hour, appetizers half price.
We ordered five appetizers and had our own buffet! 
So smart & so good!

Someone said ice cream for dessert? Another tradition?

And you might think 
we were done?  
Next we were off to 
Agua Caliente Casino!

Big spenders started on the 1c slots! 
$20 and cashed out with $41.23

Moving on to the extravagant 25 c slots!
$20 and cashed out with $51.25
Small potatoes, but I was happy.

Back to the hotel where we sat outside 
listening to a 3 man band.
Life is so good.

Day 3

Checked out before 11 AM
Brunch reservations at Acqua California Bistro

then off to a11:30 movie at Century Theater at the River ...

with reclining luxury seats!

After the show, there were a couple of photo opps in the hallway.

The proper use of booster seats.


Followed by returning to downtown Palm Springs for mainly window shopping & people watching for a few hours.
After which it was time for a last stop at ...

It's a tradition.
Erin started our drive home at 4 PM.
All feeling so grateful for this time together.

Probably, but I did this as a record for us.
Thanks for your patience.

A smile for Sunday ...

Happy Mother's Day!
