Our Summer in SLO, Part 8 {Just a Regular Ol' Weekend}

The loose schedule we've sort of had since we've been out here has looked a little something like this:  Wake up and have breakfast, head into SLO for a play date/adventure with friends, have lunch there or back at home, put Sydney down for a nap, head back out for fun with David, eat dinner out or back at home, bath time, bed for kids and then clean up from the crazy day.  It's been a lot of fun and the girls are loving it {and so am I}, but it is also exhausting to constantly be on the go.  Last weekend, I knew I was going to need some down time, but I also wanted to be able to do some fun things with the kids and David.  Unfortunately, David needed a lot of down time on Saturday, so the kids and I took a little, relaxed trip up to to SLO by ourselves.


We had a little Chipotle lunch date, just the three of us, and I have to say I had the cutest little lunch dates Chipotle had ever seen.  We couldn't go all the way up to SLO without hitting up Target, so we picked up a couple little treats for the girls while we were there.  I've been dying to get Sydney a Cabbage Patch Kid and finally pulled the trigger this trip.  Olivia walked away with a miniature Tinkerbell figurine.  {Girl is obsessed with Tinkerbell these days.}  I couldn't resist doing her hair like her doll's hair -- can't believe she actually let me and then kept them in for the rest of the day.

Olivia had been bugging me since we first got here to make a Trader Joe's pizza from scratch, so we finally did Saturday evening.  I am clearly doing something wrong because every time I try to make it, it is super dense and just sits like a brick in your stomach.  I think I'll stick to ordering pizza delivery.


Sunday morning we decided to head up to Pismo Beach for a little bit.  Going to the beach always seems like a great idea until we are actually there and sand is getting everywhere and sand fleas are swarming around the kelp on the ground.  Not so glamorous after that picturesque description, is it?  But, we really did enjoy ourselves for the hour or so we were out there.  









We were all pretty worn out after the beach trip so we came back home and relaxed for awhile.  Sydney slept until well past 5, so by that time we were ready to get back out of the house.  We wanted to stick around fairly close to home so we headed over to the Nipomo park for a little playtime.  


It was really nice to have a laid-back weekend while still enjoying lots of what this area has to offer.
