Carmel - No Kids Allowed!

Yayyyyyyyyy for adult weekends! Yayyyy for fun friends who invited us to Carmel. And yayyyy for YaYa who watched our babies while we were gone. We are so blessed.

Cameron and I had a fantastic weekend with Joey and Traci in the most adorable apartment in the center of downtown Carmel. We walked everywhere, ate deliciously amazing food and did something we never could have done with all our 5 kids... We stopped at every point on 17 mile drive. There are 21 and I'm sure you want nothing more than to relive our weekend and see the pictures. We started our day with breakfast at Katy's then got in the car to look at homes we would later have dreams about. It was a perfect afternoon.

Mistake #1 - letting old man running by take our picture (he offered)
Mistake #2 - not taking an in focus picture once he ran away

Joe pointing at Point Joe. That's funny.

By this point the boys had enough of our shenanigans but Traci and I weren't giving up. We had 10 more stops to go. There was light a cocktail at the end of the tunnel.
In order to keep the boys quiet we did a few on the move through the window.

There was also a little competitive rock stacking going on during our stops...

And this is real....
There were people sitting out on one of the 14 balconies and they waved to us as we snapped this picture.

This kid is living the dream.

As if that wasn't enough, here is the fillet and lobster I ordered at Mission Ranch. The picture just doesn't do it justice and the garlic bread was worth every calorie!

Thank you Joey & Traci for a memorable weekend. Hopefully we can do this at least annually.
