Happy Birthday To ME!

We just got back from Monterey and gosh did we have fun! It's also now official that I am a whopping 24 years old and almost 27 weeks pregnant (yes, we're entering our 3rd trimester now!)
We stayed at a new hotel in Monterey - the Intercontinental Clement Monterey. It was gorgeous and HUGE (it took up both sides of Cannery Row for almost a block!) They haven't been open long enough to get all of the kinks worked out, but it was still truly amazing. With all the pictures we took, I can't believe that I didn't get a single one of our hotel! I guess we'll have to go back...
We had fun reliving memories from previous trips while making new ones. We even went back to the aquarium for a trip down memory lane! (and shared a delicious sundae at Ghiradelli).

We spent a good chunk of today just meandering our way home along the 1, making various stops along the way. My favorite was the infamous Julia Pfeiffer Burns state park.
I've decided it's my favorite place in the entire world.
I could have spent all day there.
Our last stop of the day was San Simeon to see the Elephant Seals (what seems like 8 million of them). It's so neat to be able to get so close; they're amazing creatures!! See the two flirting in the water? :)

Isn't it so fun to step out of reality and run away with your husband?! Monterey will always have a special place in your heart and when Baby Chloe arrives, it will be even more magical.

So happy that your birthday was fabulous!
Love,
T
