A couple weeks ago we went on vacation to Southern California to visit friends and family. We stayed with our brother Nate who lives in the gorgeous Belmont Shore area off of 2nd street in Long Beach. We lounged around in shorts (which was nice for a change since that NEVER happens in Monterey), we walked 2nd street, I ate at Open Sesame with my favorite girls & we shoveled down taco surf $1 fish tacos that are to die for. We had conversations late into the night with Nate & Jessica while sipping a glass of wine, and a relaxing Saturday brunch with my mother in law.
After leaving Long Bach we headed to Palm Springs to stay at our friend’s Aunt’s beautiful home that she so generously offered to us (thank you SO much RUTH!) A total of 9 of us arrived Friday night and stayed until Sunday. We celebrated birthdays, played games, swam, and went out for a night on the town downtown Palm Springs. That night included fantastic Mexican food and ended with Karaoke. You better believe Adam, Danielle, and me sang “Where is the Love?” by the Black Eyed Peas!! Below are some photos from our vacation, enjoy!
