Had a wonderful visit with family and friends and wanted to share a few pictures that I thought you might enjoy. We took my Mom out to dinner at the Crab Cooker on the Newport Beach peninsula. It's become a family tradition because we all love seafood and it's a family friendly place....and our family is growing by leaps and bounds!
After dinner we all took a walk out on the pier...It was so nice to smell the fresh salty air and watch the seagulls fly around.
This is a lovely french bakery my sister took us to have lunch at in Dana Point. As you can see it took about a half hour trying to decide what to order. I got to meet the owner Jacque Savoire, and when he heard I was visiting all the way from Kansas, he graciously threw in an extra pastry since I was having trouble making up my mind!
It's a don't miss point of interest called Savoire Fair if you are ever out west!
Of course I took hundreds more pictures...mostly of my family that I won't torture you all with (except I'm sure my niece Julie would like to see them :)...especially of my nephews engagement ring to his fiancee'). I'm happy to be back home. I missed a snow storm while I was gone, which made sitting out in my sister's patio all the more delicious in 72 degree weather! Here I was worried the lilacs would bloom while I was away!
