My brother Denis and his wife Leah invited us to come down and vacation with them
in their rental in Palm Springs for a few days before Natalia went back to school
and I went back to work. Some nice golfing, hanging out, and playing in the sun
was had by all.

In order to make me look like a bad husband, Denis and Leah had not one cake night for Natalia's
birthday but TWO cake nights, complete with candles and singing. Luc enjoyed this a lot.

Natalia and I brought Luc back a set of Chinese pyjamas for Luc that he seems to like. They call
him the king when he's wearing them.

Last year for Luc's birthday, we found him this water play set. He's just getting old enough to
enjoy it.

Here he is playing in the water.

I think he liked the inflatable starfish as much as the rest of the set.

Here is Luc saying CHEESE!

Denis and Luc and I went for a wander to the Terra Lago hot tub and pool. It's very nice and
situated on a lake near Les and Jackie's home. Les kindly lent us his pass so that Luc could play
in this area. Thanks Les!

It only seems fitting to have palm trees in Palm Springs.

Les helped us find pink grapefruits as well, which were delicious! Here's Luc showing off
how large the grapefruits were. He calls them pink oranges.

It turns out that Luc has some natural climbing skill for sure (as most toddlers do). He kept saying
'No Help!' since he wanted to climb himself and then enjoy the slide.

Here he is loving the slide in his robe since Daddy forgot his clothes.
