Now on to part 2.........

We are back from our little mini vacation and are ready to dive into the second half of E squared's first year!!! We had a great great time in Monterey......we walked around Carmel, Pebble Beach, Monterey......went to the Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf. Just had a grand time........a great way to spend an anniversary (minus any romantic dinners but that's ok) and a half birthday!!! We have some fun pictures to share.
First.....just to remember our great fall before the trip on mommy's first day back at work.....here is Ella Grace sporting her ankle bracelet from her trip to the ER.
Edie getting really excited about heading down for a long weekend........
"Should we bring the couch mommy?"
Here they are on the bed practicing their synchronized bottle holding for the 2012 summer olympics......this was their first time staying in a motel.......we stayed in a motel on the way down on Friday night before checking into our luxury hotel (paid priceline price of course)... notice the rug burn on Edie's belly.......she loves to scoot around on the floor......fortunately it was a temporary irritation.....went away real quick. Please don't call CPS on us.......we are good parents I swear!!!
Edie and I at Pebble Beach......don't I look wonderful after a wind blown day haha!!!
Here we are at the beach in Carmel....what an awesome little town. We've been there before and it is always a great time........we have decided to make it our annual anniversary/half birthday spot!!!
Edie showed quite a fascination with the beautiful jellyfish....they were exquisite!!!
Ella and daddy with the baby bjorn for the very first time......she had such a great time. She squealed with delight very often this weekend........super cute!!!
Here they are with Monterey Bay behind them at Pebble Beach......
The Pebble Beach Lodge.....where we will NEVER be able to afford to stay....UNFORTUNATELY!!! Here they are after the Monterey Bay Aquarium......we had fun!!!
Ella.......relaxing with daddy at Pebble Beach.......
Just being cute!!!
Here are the bathing beauties........right before we took them swimming for the very first time. The water in the pool at our hotel was heated to 82 degrees..NICE. They loved it and believe it or not I did not get one single picture of them in the pool..drats!!!

How fun! Caramel and Monteray are amazing! I haven't been there for quite a few years.

You guys look great, btw!

No wonder you have such little cuties - you and your hubby are a such a nice looking couple! I haven't seem many photos with you guys in them - so I especially liked this post. Glad that the trip was okay - and I hope that no more hospital visits are in your future :-) I especially like the one crawling under the couch - that one is really cool.
