Happy Belated Anniversary to Us

Eric and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on August 16th. We didn't really have any plans to do anything special - just a quiet dinner at home with the kids. Well, our friends Chris and Stefanie were celebrating their anniversary that weekend as well. I spoke to Stefanie Friday evening and they were over in Pismo Beach - she was shocked to hear that Eric and I had never been to Pismo and we talked about how it would be nice to go over there together sometime. Then she suggested that Eric and I go on Saturday and stay with them. Well, we had Sunday commitments, but ended up getting off the phone at about 6:15, packing, and running out the door by about 7:15 Friday night so we could spend the whole day there on Saturday. It was a gorgeous day and we had such a good time. A surprise trip for all of us!

We went down to the beach in the morning to find seashells - it was overcast and a little chilly, but not too bad.

Anna had no trouble getting comfy in her stroller.

Haylie is definitely a little beach bum. She loves the water!

This was taken after we had spent the whole day at the beach - Anna was so tired she kinda collapsed on my lap.

That evening we went to the Splash Cafe for clam chowder. The line for this place is insane - apparently it is THE place to get clam chowder in Pismo. It WAS rather delicious!!

Thanks to our friends for helping us celebrate our anniversary!

Love you Eric - can you believe it's been 6 years already?? Time flies when you're having fun!

Happy anniversary! I love Splash Cafe and I think they really do have the best clam chowder, but you have to get it in the bread bowl. Anna is getting so big, Peyton too, I can't believe how fast they are growing up!
