So for The Mr.'s b'day, sneaky wife that I am, I secretly book a room at the hotel that we stayed at on our honeymoon. I waited till he was asleep then quietly packed the car in the dead of night. The next morning, we went to the Farmer's Market as usual, grabbed our raw milk then dropped it at home before I was to take him to a "surprise brunch". That was all he knew. THEN BAM!!!!! I jumped on the freeway (figuratively speaking of course) and drove to the coast. He was SOOOOO excited although it took him the entire first day to stop figetting as though he had somewhere to be. As soon as we got into town we went straight to the beach and had lunch and played for a while. It was wonderful and The Kidlet was ECSTATIC!
The next morning we went to the nursery owned by the hotel and they were kind enough to let The Kidlet feed the fish. Ever since he's been shouting "BIG ONE!!!" every time he sees a fish of any proportion.
It ended up that through a fluke The Mr. had monday off, so we decided to find a cheap motel further south to stay at the night we were supposed to head back home to reality. The next day ended up being more playing and swinging on yet another beach.
If you have never eaten at Splash Cafe in Pismo Beach. GO AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
I have MANY allergies and have stayed away from them all for the 6 months it's been since I found out. I decided it was worth the misery it may cause to enjoy the clam chowder bread bowl and split a grilled cheese sandwich with The Mr. I'm allergic to yeast, wheat, and dairy (amogst many other things) but I can say, without a doubt, it was totally worth it to eat this delectable bowl of heaven.
This was in the car as The Mr. was packing up for us to leave. The Kidlet wanted to sport the shades like the uber cool kid that he is.
