On October 11th I celebrated my first birthday in California! I was so lucky that my dad came and visited for the weekend. It was so wonderful to finally see one of my parents after three months. We had such a great time together exploring different parts of California.
Friday morning we went down to the Huntington Beach Boardwalk and went for an awesome run by the beach!
After our run, we drove up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu where we had a delicious lunch at a super cute Greek restaurant called Taverna Tony. We even happened to be sitting a table away from Kourtney Kardashian – my first famous person encounter since being in California!
On Saturday, we drove down the Pacific Coast Highway to San Diego. It took us about 5 and a half hours to get down there, but it was so fun driving through all the different towns and seeing what they were like. We stopped at The Lodge at Torrey Pines along the way and had lunch at The Grill right on the golf course! Around 3pm we finally arrived in beautiful San Diego.
We spent our time at the Hotel Del Coronado which was such an amazing place! We enjoyed a couple of drinks in the 100 degree weather and put our feet in the ocean before heading back up the coast.
On Sunday morning we went for a birthday beach walk down at the Huntington Beach Boardwalk. Afterwards, we went and had a birthday breakfast at the Original Pancake House where I was able to get GLUTEN-FREE PANCAKES!!
I had such a wonderful birthday weekend and am so happy that I was able to spend it with my dad! Xoxoxo
