Last weekend, we headed out to the desert for a couple of days. I am always fascinated by the beauty. . . .the dry weather, barren mountains and extreme heat all lend to this lovely place with unique flowers, cactus and "brown" mountains. The temperature was quite warm(around 100 degrees), so we spent a great deal of time in the pool. Dane was unsure at first, but eventually grew comfortable and enjoyed the water. Ellery was born part mermaid, so she was in her element!!!
