Thanksgiving in California

Saturday, December 31, 2011

On November 17th we packed up our favorite things and for the first time ever,
the three of us took a long drive to the great state of California!!
I really loved packing Beckham's tiny little things:)

I like our road trips, hubby and I always have fun talking about everything and when we run out of things to talk about we're singing to our favorite Pandora stations. As for baby boy, I was afraid he'd loathe the sight of his carseat after being stuck in there for half of a day.. but luckily he was sleepy enough that the ride was no big deal for him...
which meant a pretty peaceful ride for us.

I have to admit that Beckham got a little spoiled over there.. but so did I!
It was pretty nice to have so many babysitters in one house.
He definitely got mucho love from everyone.

We had a very eventful 10 days.. from witnessing Beckham's first (and only) projectile vomit (sorry you had to be a victim of that incident Kari), to me having to be rushed to urgent care due to mastitis (no bueno), and Derrick's truck having a random electronic difficulty (which cost us a pretty penny to fix).. we still managed to have a fun time with my family
... but of course we did..
We're talking about THE STEPHAN FAMILY:)
1. We got to CA just in time to celebrate my dad's bday.
2. He's pretty awesome right? Happy Bday Papi!!
3. Derrick and I just loved our little family walks.. baby boy was nice and cozy.
4. He's just cute. What more can I say?
5. Auntie Kari.. aka The Baby Whisperer. She was so good with him! Thanks Kare:)
6. After a few days we finally got to see my Dahv and his lovely wifey. Miss them so much!
7. How awesome is this. My little hippy baby.
8. Now the BEST thing about having so much family more than willing to take care of little Beckham was that we got to have our own little one night getaway:) Derrick surprised me with some yummy sushiiiii!... dang it I'm craving this now...
9. We went to downtown San Diego and stayed at a very pretty hotel, The US Grant. It was lovely.
10. Shopping at Fashion Show Mall, tomato basil soup at Nordie's cafe, and galavanting in SD was amazazazing. But the best part? Getting a full night's sleep!!
11. On Thanksgiving day Beckham turned 2 months old!
12. We got up early that morning to watch the boys play football.
13. Dad, Rebecca, and Madi ran on the track and watched the boys play too.
14. It was a beautiful day for football.
15-18. Cooking together on Thanksgiving day is my favorite. That and the ham:) (Thanks for the photo Rebecca.. hehe)
19. My dear friend Haley and her beautiful family came to visit! We tried to get the babes to at least look at each other but it wasn't happening.. we're devious matchmakers:)
20. When she wasn't looking my dad was so sweet and planned a bday surprise for my mom. We ate at our fave bbq place Lucille's. Love you momma!

It's not every day that we get to see this family all at one time.
We love you guys more than you know:) xo
