Easter Weekend 2014

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Since this was our first real holiday as a family, we decided to make the whole weekend a fun one! 

We took Beckett to get his photos with the Easter Bunny on Wednesday. He was so good! 
Since CL had Good Friday off, we decided to take advantage of a free day and nice weather and head to Half Moon Bay for the day! We had never been and since the traffic to Santa Cruz was a few minutes heavier then the traffic to Half Moon Bay, we decided to go somewhere new!

We stopped for a long, leisurely lunch at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. CL and I shared a half dozen oysters and a couple of beers over lunch. While the view and food were great, the service was terrible. Next time we are going to try Sam's Chowder House.
  After lunch and a diaper change and comical feeding in the backseat of the car, we headed to Maverick's Beach for the afternoon. Mavericks is located on Pillar Point Air Force Station and is known for it's Surf Competition and HUGE surf break. In the winter we are talking 25-80 foot surf. 
We took a nice walk and hung out on the beach and just relaxed. It was Beckett's first trip to the beach and even though he basically napped the entire time, I hope his love for the ocean parallels mine. Fresh air, sunshine and the sand between your toes- there is no better feeling!
    Saturday we took it easy since we had such a big Friday. We headed to Ikea to pick up a rug, dresser, and lamp for Beckett's room, then off to the mall for lunch and to pick up a new pair of shoes for CL.
The Easter Bunny came and dropped off the most adorable Easter Basket for Beckett! My mom ordered a Peter Rabbit Basket liner from Pottery Barn Kids and I just love it! The plaid one's they had for boys all looked like men's boxers and I adore Peter Rabbit so it was a perfect buy! She also sent a bunch of  Dr. Seuss, Sandra Boyton and other adorable books, a Peter Rabbit teething toy, fun eggs, bunny ears and the most hilarious pair of hipster bunny glasses for his basket! My in-laws sent him his first Easter bib and CL and I got him a pair of Babiators and a bath toy. 
how boss is this pic of my guys?! LOVE.
the shoes that he's wearing were mine.. and then my brothers.. and now his!
     We had a nice late breakfast and a beautiful dinner. Cl even used his meat slicer for the first time since we got it as a wedding gift almost 2 years ago! ha!
  It was definitely a great weekend! Hope you and your family had a beautiful Easter weekend!
