Weekend Update: Beach, BBQ, Football, Friends, and a little Hike

What a great weekend we had, filled with beautiful sunny days, making memories as a family and with friends, and soaking up our last 5 months in California! (Yes, we only have 5 more months here... our 2 years have gone by super fast!)

So we had a wonderful 4 day weekend. Friday, Steven played golf with some friends, and Charli and I met him up at the club for happy hour and got a beautiful sunset to go along with it! (I will miss the California sunsets!). We woke up Saturday morning and went to breakfast at the cutest little cafe (From Scratch) in Carmel, which was recommended by my friend Kate! (Great recommendation! Cutest place ever). Saturday afternoon we packed up and headed to the beach with lots of our friends and did a little BBQ on the beach, which was such a fun time, and a perfect evening for it!

Bayonet & Blackhorse Golf and Country Club

Sunday, we went over to our friends Kris and Katy's house for some awesome homemade pizza, football, and wine! What I didn't know, is that we were going to get welcomed by a family of deer! And caught a beautiful sunset on the drive home!

Monday morning we woke up and went for a hike with our friends at Jack's Peak! It was such a fun morning, and a beautiful hike!  

Bogey also got to join in on the family hike! 

Charli's first hike!

Dads and the babes!

Man, so thirsty!

Charli and Maddie! BFFs!

Then Steven and I packed up our beach bag and headed out to the beach to soak up some more of this wonderful Monterey sunshine! And it was Charli's first time in the sand! And to all my Floridian family and friends who have never experienced the west coast... Yes, this is what walking to the beach looks like! AMAZING right!!

Love those sandy baby feet!

Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend as well!! Not looking forward to tomorrow... Charli gets her 6 month shots and her flu shot :(
