Vacation Wrap-Up

So we had a great time in California. I really wasn't ready for it to end. The weather was gorgeous pretty much the whole time we were there.

My nephew changed so much in the 2 weeks we were there. It's kind of crazy that he will be close to 2 by the next time we see him. Oh, and the big news of the trip... Sean finally held a baby! A couple of times actually. Okay, so as soon as he started crying, Sean would pass him off. But it seems like I was the only one who didn't do that. I guess that's the advantage of growing up around babies.

We got the chance to spend a few hours with Sean's best friend, Jer, which was fun. We went to see the restaurant they are having their wedding at and had a great dinner. Seriously, the food at this place was amazing. Then after dinner we went to the BEST wine bar I had ever been to. The place was called Wine Detectives in downtown Pasadena. Basically, you go in and they give you this pre-loaded card. You then walk around with the card and put it into what I can only describe as a wine vending machine. For a fixed price, you get to try about 2 ounces of some amazing wines. I actually got to try and $200 bottle of wine. I'll be honest, it wasn't that much better than the $50 bottle right next to it, but it was still fun. We kept joking about how they should franchise and start one in Oregon, especially since 4 of the 5 Pinot Noir's were from Oregon winerys (but she didn't have my personal favorite).

We also celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary while we were there. Started off the day doing pictures with the sister's in law for Sean's mom. We are making her a book for Mother's Day and since it was one of the few nice, not windy days we had, we did them then.

After that we headed down the hill to Ontario and went to the mall. Didn't buy anything exciting, but we did get to go play at Dave and Busters for a couple hours. For dinner we went to Black Angus. It wasn't anything too exciting, but not a bad day considering Sean completely forgot our anniversary (oops).

All and all a good trip, though I'm happy to be home. Sean and I are working on something pretty exciting, so I may have big news soon. In the mean time, fingers crossed for us please!

Happy Tuesday!
