California Lovin'

BEST.VACATION.EVER. Loved every second!! This was the first "real" time I have left my kids and the first time since our HONEYMOON it was just Matt and I going away .... yeah we were due!! We went to California to visit some great friends and had such an amazing time with them!!! We did so much, ate so much great food, and shopped so much! My perfect vacation!
Highlights:
Most amazing red velvet pancakes & cookie crust french toast ... Sprinkles Cupcakes ... renting beach cruisers and riding down the beach ... Yummy Mexican food ... Santa Monica Pier ... Matt getting beat up by the boys :) ... Shopping ... Kaia! ... Dodgers game ... Laughing so hard SO Late at night and now not remembering why ... U2!!! ... Dodger Dog ... Shopping ... Diet Coke ... NO KIDS to worry about!!!!! ... listening to the boys laugh and laugh ... doing whatever we wanted whenever we wanted ... starting an obsession with Lululemon ... boys golfing at way too nice a course ... relaxing at the beach ... almost peeing my pants from laughing too hard ... and just having time with Matt and I!! Seriously Hansen's we cannot thank you enough!!! And our kids were in HEAVEN with Grandma and Grandpa - this needs every year!!
