This is Magnolia... she was the best eye-candy of the trip. My girls (Sophia especially) are obsessed with babies right now... so she was a good sport while she was forced to watch silly faces and peek-aboos all day. Look at her though... you can see why they're obsessed with her. She is exactly as old as I am pregnant. To the DAY. 18 weeks yesterday.
Cafe Rio! I can't believe there's one just a couple of hours from my house now.. it was heavenly... we ate there for dinner and then headed over to the Irvine Spectrum to wander, ride the carousel, and eat our pre-s'more treats.
Each morning, we hit the Bagel Shack for breakfast. I could eat an everything bagel with cream cheese, sprouts, tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onions every day of the week.
Then on to the pier...
This is Brooke and Tyson... to whom we owe this fun "annual" trip... going on year two. Not sure we'll be invited next year when we we've got one more animal in tow. Her kids make my kids look extra wild. She's got two brown-eyed angels.
Below--- our posing, sexy husbands.
This picture is such an accurate portrayal of my girls right now. I've got one angel, one devil. Look at that mischievous smile.
Ross buried some coins while the kids weren't looking, and then went on a treasure hunt with them later. He told them a story about the pirate, Captain Black Beard who buried the treasure... They were SO into it... it was the first thing Sawyer wanted to talk about when he popped out of his room in the morning. So cute.
Maybe my FAVORITE part of the beach house... the bonfire and s'mores. I've never been a s'more lover until the Homec's turned me on to the double marshmallow s'more last year... this year they bought GIANT marshmallows that I failed to capture on camera... they were AMAZING... maybe too big... since they oozed out of every edge before you could catch it. I found marshmallow on my lower back later. What?
