Photos From Day One In California

After a great flight with Claire (much to the relief of the passengers around us) we arrived at the Catamaran Resort right on Mission Beach in San Diego. It was a GREAT place to stay and we even got a suite upgrade through travelocity. When we arrived we found 2 double beds, not the king we were expecting so they moved us up to the seventh floor to gorgeous suite with ocean views. WOW! You've got to love that "roaming gnome." Did I mention we had two balconies overlooking the ocean?

The next morning Claire got to sit in a restaurant high chair for the first time (she made eyes at all the other diners and surfer boys). Dan and I had the best french toast EVER. I had to photograph it...yum yum yum.

We spent the day lounging about the pool and exploring the hotel which had gorgeous grounds and a bunch of parrots around to entertain the guests. They were very chatty and we could hear the one parrot saying, "here kitty, kitty" from our balcony. Claire seemed to enjoy the birds, not nearly as much as her own pets.

Laurie and Alison came by to visit and swim with Claire who very much enjoyed each of her pool adventures. Swim diapers are the best inventions ever...we didn't get to truly test them out because Claire had saved that up for the plane (haha) but looking at how much her regular diaper swelled up I can't imagine it actually containing anything.
Dan cooked dinner with the groceries Claire and I picked up (her first grocery cart ride too!) and then we finally got to see National Treasure II on the gigantic flat screen TV in the master bedroom.

So that's day one of CA...I know, a WEEK later. I'll post pictures of the wedding tomorrow and the zoo on Sunday. I'm having some issues with the image uploader so I have to do it all manually. With Claire crawling (eeek!) there's not nearly enough time in the day anymore.


  1. So when did she start crawling??? WOW - now she'll be into everything. Lock down those cabinets and block the stairs!!! We miss you Claire and cannot wait to see you.
