Resolved in Palm Springs

Mohawk time! A little bath before we drove to Palm Springs.
Here we are the first night at Resolved. If you don't know what Resolved is go here to find out more about it (you can download all the messages for free- my favorites were Lawson's first one, and CJ's second one). We had a refreshing time hearing the Word preached, fellowshipping, and singing worship.
Here is the princess being whisked down the runway in her limo (actually down the hallway in her stroller to our hotel room for a nap)!
Madison was exposed to many restaurants this trip- each meal we ate with different friends (that's about 10 restaurants!) Here she is having breakfast with Sarah- her buddy. We are thrilled for her and Drew to be getting married in just a few weeks!
That afternoon we went to lunch with my parents, and some of the Sanders family. You might be able to see Drew and Sarah at this restaurant in the background, too! Maddie was giving my dad kisses.
Too cute for words!
Brooke Smith and I had fun sitting outside together during several of the sessions with our kids. They had a great time playing. Shep loved giving Maddie hugs, and even gave her her first kiss on the cheek- so sweet!
One afternoon we had a Bible Study lunch. It was fun hanging out with everyone. We packed in between 40 and 50 people in a two bedroom condo for lunch.
My little sweetie
The dads took the babies in for a swim.
Elijah and Maddie had fun playing ball together.
Hannah had given me this outfit for Maddie a year ago at her baby shower- now she looks adorable in it!
After Resolved, Jesse and I were able to stay for two extra days in a condo the Yoons lent us. It was such a blessing to be together just as a family! We swam, walked, BBQed, and just played with Madison. I woke up from my nap (yes, and a little napping too), to find Jesse on the lawn with Maddie looking at the birds. They had no idea I was spying on them- they are so cute together!
The weather was perfect- 80's and 90's.
Here you see her hands oh so close to Daddy's phone and the remotes- both "no touches". She does a great job going over to them, pointing at them, and shaking her head no. Very funny.
Playing on the back porch in her diaper.
Her monkey crawl.
We were able to avoid restaurants while we stayed at the condo, and enjoyed eating home-cooked meals again.
I just always want to kiss these cheeks!
On the way home, we let Madison drive. We needed some shut eye after how busy she kept us :)

Did Jesse forget to pack any shirts for the week? :) Maddie's so cute! Maybe when we're in CA she can teach Emma "No touch" for the phone and remote.
