Last week my husband and I took a short road trip to Palm Springs to celebrate my birthday. The reason I chose Palm Springs in the middle of the summer, is because it's located near Joshua Tree National Park. My husband and I are National Park junkies. We've visited eight this year already, and hope to squeeze in a few more.
I made these cookies for us to snack on as we drove. The cookie designs are based on the research I did of things to do in Palm Springs. The colorful cactus was representing the hotel we stayed at, The Saguaro Hotel. When searching for a hotel online, The Saguaro looked fun with a huge pool, daily yoga, and colorful decor. The hotel is very pet friendly so that was a plus. I saw online that there was a huge Marilyn Monroe sculpture in Palm Springs. We found out when we arrived that she has been moved to New Jersey and I was a bummed about that. Here are some photo highlights of our trip. Some of the pictures were taken with my phone, so I apologize for the low quality of those photographs. Hope you enjoy!
