Shake Me Like a Monkey

So many pictures and so little energy!
Will you guys forgive me if I only give a few long as I promise to include the really juicy ones?
Awww, thanks.

We headed down to San Diego Thursday night and after hitting tons of traffic finally made it to our hotel and pretty much crashed.  But, Friday morning, I was like a kid on Christmas and was ready to get the day started.  

Breakfast at The Mission {again} and it was as yummy as I had remembered it being.

French toast with homemade cinnamon bread.  Oh so delicious.

We decided to head over to the San Diego Zoo and while the high was supposed to be 72, it felt more like 85.  But, it was gorgeous!  We only spent a few hours there, but it was enough to see so many exciting animals.

So cute, right?

She met the nicest little girl who kept taking her down the slide.

I can't even handle this...

We headed back to the hotel, took a quick nap, and freshened up for Part One of the Main Event.  Ok, so let me just say that I was SO excited to go see the Dave Matthews Band.  It had been two years since we had seen them last and we were so far away from the stage at that show that it didn't even feel like we were there.  I need to be close enough to feel the energy off of the stage.  The Chula Vista show was great...I got to hear Big Eyed Fish, #41 and Sister and even though our seats weren't the greatest, I was a happy camper just being able to enjoy the show and some one-on-one time with my other Dave {and by that I mean my husband}.  Saturday's show in Irvine was sooooo much better though!  We had pit tickets and ended up being 3rd row, center. And, yeah, Dave and I locked eyes on more than one occasion.  They put on such a fantastic show.  They opened with Minarets, they played Lying in the Hands of God {which is my favorite off the new album}, they did Grey Street, and two rare ones Rye Whiskey and Black Jack.  I'm stoked that we have one more show this summer because I did not get enough.

I have to say a very special thank you to my parents for driving over from Arizona to watch Olivia for us.  They were so great to let us sleep in on Saturday morning {after spending two hours driving 15 miles home the night before and getting to bed much later than we planned} and were there anytime we needed an extra set of hands.  And did I mention that I am SO ROTTEN and convinced them to drive a few hours more to stay a couple of extra days with us.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for continuing to cater to my DMB obsessions!  Love you both.

Happy Monday from the Central Coast!
