SAND and SNOW...all in one day

we went on a little road trip this past weekend to do a little exploring.  we passed through Palm Springs and made a couple of stops along the way.  i was looking for an estate sale in palm springs with no luck but i did find a store there called the estate sale company.  
love finding new stores!!  
it was packed full of furniture and overall the store had a good variety but not a whole lot that was my style.  i found one dining room table with a china cabinet that i loved but it was a little pricy and there was no way we were going to fit it in our car.  i wasn't even looking for a new table but after seeing that one i keep thinking about it...

as we were heading out of palm springs we couldn't leave without a Shield's date shake.  i'm not a huge date fan, but these date shakes are so yummy.  
we headed home through the mountains to do one last little exploration.  we had never been on that road before and we weren't even sure how high the road went up into the mountains...apparently a lot higher than we thought.  

we were in the snow!!! 

we were not dressed appropriately for it.  ella and i were both in sandals and julian had shorts on.  we stopped, threw a couple of snowballs, took some pictures and piled back into the car to warm up.  it was freezing!!

i love road trips...even short ones. 
it was just what we needed as a family.

we were even able to catch up with some really good friends who we hadn't seen in a while.
hope you had a great weekend!!


  1. You captured some great shots, Melissa - what a cool trip!


  2. This sounds great! It looks great, too. :)
    In sandals and shorts in the snow? Brrr! (I can feel the cold on me!)

  3. My brother told us to stop there on our way home. He said we used to go there a lot when we were kids, I don't remember. Funny, we may have run into each other. :)


Thanks for stopping by!
