A day in Palm Springs

As planned, we took a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway yesterday. The temperature at the top (31 degrees) was more than 20 degrees cooler than the bottom.... there were snow flurries and about 3 inches of snow on the ground. The boys went outside and had a snowball fight. The girls had more sense than that!!  

Once we finished up  at the tramway, we headed into Palm Springs proper to hunt up a place for lunch. Tried a little spot called "Grill-A-Burger" with pretty decent food, then browsed the shops on the way back to the car. Before heading back this way, we drove past Elvis Presley's Palm Springs home.... Brian had seen the address on the back of a postcard, so we plugged it into the GPS. It was less than 5 minutes from downtown. Not terribly exciting, but we can say we've seen it.  

Made a grocery run for a few things on the way back to the RV for the evening. Brian's meeting began last night at 7. The kids and I hung out here watching TV and reading books, getting showered up, etc. 

Woke up this morning to the sound of RAIN falling on the roof. Thankfully it slowed to a near stop by the time I needed to take Brian to the hotel for his conference at 6:30. The kids and I will be heading out soon to check out the children's museum. Brian is scheduled to be done with his conference at 1:30 today; we'll pick him up for lunch then.  Hopefully the weather will hold so that we can grill dinner tonight.

Are you afraid of heights? I might have been fearful on the tramway. And do you drive the RV around when Brian isn't there? I envision a Kathy Bates-esque moment from "Fried Green Tomatoes" where you ram some young whipper snapper's Prius when they park longwise across the last RV spot in the parking lot....
