Valentines Day the California Way

Steve and I wanted to get away for the three day weekend, so we drove to San Diego and visited our good friends Liz and Dave!
We had a picnic on Coronado Island. It was a beautiful day!
Liz is just glowing in this picture while snuggling her little William!
Liz and I liked seeing our men chatting while holding our babies! They are both such sweet dads!
Parker LOVES William! He was so sweet and gentle with him, it was precious! It looks like Parker is saying "I got you buddy. " :)

We went back to their apartment after wards and Liz and I had so much fun watching Parker and William talk up a storm to each other! Parker would gently touch his face and goo and William would squeal and goo back at him! Every restaurant had a two hour wait that night, so we ordered pizza and watched a movie. I thought it was way more fun then going out!
The next morning (which was Valentine's Day) we met them for breakfast at Champagne French Bakery-- which by the way was amazing!!! I highly recommend getting their breakfast crossiant and their strawberry crepes! The picture below is pretty much what all of my shirts look like! Parker sucks (and stretches out) all of my sleeves when I hold him!
That evening, Steve and I took Parker to the beach to see the sunset. He was mesmerized!
These two boys are my whole world.
Steve is such a good dad! I am so blessed to be with him forever!
Who do you think he looks like? Mom or Dad?

I love that there are seals just chilling on the beach!
All right guys, I'm ready to go hike Torrey Pines!
Just one of the views on our hike...
By the time we packed up and got in the car to drive home, Parker was out before we even turned the corner! He was a little exhausted from all that fun! Steve and I enjoyed the drive home (minus the crying) but we listened to music and ate snacks and even stopped in Dateland! Parker needed a break from the car, so we thought why not check it out. It was actually really nice and I swear it had the cleanest, nicest public restrooms I have ever seen in my life! We will definitely stop there again while traveling to Cali!
Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day!
