This past week my parents have been in town visiting for their annual Newport Beach trip. I look forward to this every year and usually stay with them for a few nights....I just love it up there! It was beautiful weather for all of my favorite things....running in Corona Del Mar and Newport, biking the Newport boardwalk, shopping at Fashion Island, hot tub sessions, and hanging out in Laguna. Perhaps my favorite thing about Newport are the A-MAZINGLY delicious almond twists from Pain du Monde. They are devilishly good- I just can't get enough of them. They have stores on Main Street in Balboa, in Corona Del Mar, and at Fashion Island. So if you're in the area- they are definitely worth the stop! Even though those places aren't too far away from us in Carlsbad, it's not like we get to enjoy it all that much.
much easier with my Dad whereas the first time I did it with my roommate in college and we nearly crashed a billion times!
Main Beach in Laguna
Jack had a blast hanging out with his Grandparents and was a great sleeper at the hotel.
As always he was such a goof ball, and is even more of a chatter box than before.
(He had this thing here everything was a stool to him)
He even started saying "Hi" and says "mama" almost as much as "dada"(yes!).
(Here is playing with a real phone for the first time)
He also tries mimicking tons of other words- I just love his effort and love this time that he's learning and growing SO much. We missed derek the two nights we were away, so it was fun to come home on Friday and just hang out as a family.
