|I came out from a bathroom break and was told my seat was taken ;)haha|
We knew driving 13 hours straight with a 5 month old would not be a good idea so we took the trip slow and spent and made a few stops along the way. On the way down we spent a day with my grandparents and family. We were able to catch Ashley's last soccer game and Jaxon surprised everyone that night by army crawling across the floor for the first time! I guess he was just waiting for a big audience to perform his new trick ;).
Our halfway stop on the way there and back was Saint George. The Theurer's great family friends the Heers, let us stay in their home and at their newest project In On The Cliff. They have done a lot of work to fix up the inn and it is seriously so beautiful and nice! We loved staying with them and wish we would have planned a few more days to enjoy. They also just opened a restaurant next door to the Inn called the Cliffside Restaurant, and the food is to die for! Seriously, if you are in St. George you need to go and check it out!

Saturday we went to a huge farmers market in Santa Monica and then walked along the beach and on the pier. From there we took a beautiful drive up the PCH a little ways past Malibu to their favorite little beach. Megan packed a cooler for lunch and we had fun exploring some tide pools, caves, and sitting in the sun :) It was a little overcast and so we all underestimated how much sunscreen we really needed and were a little burnt when the day was over. That night we went to a really great local Mexican restaurant.

Monday we had planned on spending the day in Aneheim shopping before the game. We did fit in an Indonesian lunch at a restaurant (which was pretty authentic) we found but ended up having some car troubles and were stuck in an auto shop for most of the afternoon. We were able to shop and eat dinner for an hour just before the ball game. The ball game was awesome! Being at a major league field really is a cool feeling and Brad was definitely loving his graduation gift.
