Last weekend Eric and I had our first weekend away, since kids, with the only goal to relax. We'd had other weekends away where we were teaching at encounters or going to conferences, but this weekend we had no agenda. The last time we'd done that was in November of 03 for my 21st birthday. It was so nice!
We stayed at the Cypress Inn at Half Moon Bay, just south of San Francisco. We had so much fun! All we really did was walk on the beach, walk around the cute little downtown, read our Bibles and our books, and watch tv. The inn we stayed at was right across the street from the beach, it was so beautiful! I even found a whole sand dollar, but left it in the room. And, Eric got to sleep in! Our favorite past was the food at the inn (at least that was Eric's!). They made delicious breakfasts in the morning, had snacks in the late afternoon, and homemade desserts at night. Good thing we did a lot of walking!
The only bummer is that we didn't have a camera. Ours had broke, so we took a few pictures on our phones. The great thing is that my dad ordered us a new camera (I requested it as our new baby gift) and it was waiting on our doorstep when we got home (a Canon powershot). Yay! Thanks DAD!!
Speaking of baby, I think I'm officially in nesting mode. Since we've gotten back from our trip I've purged Judah and Samuel's rooms of all unnecessary toys, packed up their clothes that are too small, and cleaned and organized their rooms. Eric brought in the changing table and all the baby clothes, so they're ready for me to go through. I bought a few crates to put on the changing table shelves, since all the baby stuff will be in our room! It's going to be crowded, but it will fit. Tonight we're going to Target to get some stuff we still need. And, once we buy or order the pack n play and the baby has somewhere to sleep I think we'll be pretty close to ready. I can't wait to meet him...24 days left! (Tentatively...)
