It's pretty typical for LA urbanites to take trips out to Palm Springs! Give me a pool, and I'm a happy camper! I'm pretty sure this is a sentiment Micah possess as well... We took the little guy to the desert for the first time. He loved it, until it reached 120. After incessant nursing, air condition cranking, we had to head home. It was just too much for Micah, and we didn't blame him! I guess we will have to give it a try during winter again.
Life for me began on a military base in upstate New York. I bounced around like army brats do, eventually landing in Exeter, PA. Facing those harsh east coast winters year after year was my drive to get someplace warm...Los Angeles sounded nice at the time, so that's what I worked for.
