Meeting Mr. Rex


Meeting Mr. Rex has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Every other month or so for the past 26 years my family would drive out to Palm Desert to visit my grandmother. And every time we’d pass the Cabazon Dinosaurs I’d beg to relive that Pee Wee Herman’s Big Adventure moment. Sadly there was never enough time. I used to live about an hour away from these robotic dinosaurs, but never once did I make the trip to see them.

So when we booked my birthday weekend in Palm Springs, I made sure of it that we stopped to meet Mr. Rex. I wore this adorable Mossimo off shoulder dress along with my favorite summer hat for this sight-seeing moment. It was so windy, though, I ended up spending most of the time holding on to my hat and pulling down my dress – probably not the wisest style choice in the windy desert. But I didn’t care. I was just ecstatic to finally scratch this moment off my bucket list.

  • Gonna miss this place - our favorite morning routine 💔 It’s amazing how you can spend your entire time living somewhere wanting to be somewhere else, until your wish is finally granted and then you realize how much you really loved where you’ve been all along. .
Thank you to everyone who has treated us like family from the beginning. Y’all (yeah, I finally said it 😂) have quite literally opened up your hearts, homes and families to us and made us feel so welcome. Texas was far too kind to us and we will miss this place tremendously and everyone who made our experience unforgettable. ♥️
