....and so much more.
Many thanks to Cathy for hosting us, as always, and Paul and Kristyn for the fun double-date dance night, putting up with Peter and showing us the sights of San Louis Obispo.
Overall, it was WONDERFUL!
Highlights: -Santa Monica Pier on my birthday. It was truly a magical day. Peter loved it! The rides, the arcade, playing in the ocean for over an hour in his diaper. He was enthralled. It was one of those perfect days that will go down in the books.
-Thai food at my fav place in Malibu. PREGNANT CRAVING DREAM COME TRUE!
-Braving Disneyland in the cold and wet the day after throwing up ALL DAY (and all night for Vic). We did it! And we enjoyed it despite being dehydrated and still recovering from a NASTY bug.
-Deciding to pack Peter's bike in our big suitcase and seeing him ride it on the boardwalk and around West L.A.
-Seeing Vic's brother and his wife and watching the boy cousins duke it out.
-Taking our crib tent with us and putting it over the pack n play. Best sleep we've ever had on vacation!
-Meeting Abbey, a FABULOUS, lovable, adorable, wise blog reader who brought me lunch and took us to the airport. (Plus, she's Jewish so I automatically was in love. I've said before, I have a thing for Jewish people). She could use any and all support and love, if you feel so inclined to click on her blog. She is a lovely, lovely soul.
-The tacky Madonna Inn. Loved it.
-Seeing the same steel drummer on the pier who was playing music during THIS VIDEO of Lucy. People must wonder what is wrong with me and Vic when we are smiling at each other and crying at the same time at the most random moments. Like walking into Disneyland and on the Peter Pan ride...
-Valentine's Dance and getting to hear Lea Cabrera Hubbard sing and see her cuteness!
