We woke up in the morning ready to get moving. We checked out of the hotel and started driving south. Karen and I had leftover bread and the smoothest cream cheese for breakfast, the boys had McD's. We drove to Gilroy where there are outlet stores because T forgot to pack shirts and K didn't want him alternating between those two shirts for the entire trip. While we were looking in different stores H and I were able to do the impossible: We finally bought H some jeans. He has 1 pair of jeans right now and they are too short, but I really like how he looks in jeans. The trouble is that H thinks he looks fat in jeans, that somehow they accentuate a large, bulbous behind. Have I told you lately that when it comes to H's fanny, he is delusional? So we bought not just any pair of jeans, but some Levi's 501s. It is like H is just discovering the beauty of the jean and has to start with the basics. He ended up wearing them a couple of times on the trip and he looked really great in them.
After all that shopping we got ourselves down to Carmel. We arrived at the house around mid afternoon and it was gorgeous. Blue skies, green grass (14th hole on Pebble Beach) and the yard was looking amazing. Flowers in bloom, birds in the bushes. It was idyllic. We hauled our stuff in and I immediately went to the front porch to sit. This is the place I love best at that house, the porch. Okay, the kitchen ties for first, but for the perfect spot to sip something cool with a great view, you cannot beat the porch. We found out we had wifi access (yippee!) and checked in with email and stuff (and by stuff I mean our bank account). We played a couple of rounds of pool. I admit that T won both games, DANGIT! My competitive nature had a hard time with this. Then we headed off for dinner and to Trader Joe's. Originally we were going to make our own dinner on Wed night but it had gotten a bit late and we were kind of tired and didn't want to fix food, so we got dinner at.....drum roll please.....Chipotle. (Yes, Brittany, that was for you!) We had heard good things about Chipotle and they were all true. We loved our meal, so fresh, so yummy. And the guacomole was perfect!
We bought a bunch of food at TJ's, including a bunch of candy and sweet stuff and headed home. T put in a video and I promptly fell asleep, on the couch. H woke me up and off I went to bed and that ended day two. Sorry no pics, but our official trip photographer took over at this point and I am counting on her to get me copies of the photographs.
