Two Peas and Their Pod: California Trip

California Trip

Josh had a couple of Dr's appointments scheduled for Monday in California so we decided to make a fun trip out of it and went for the weekend. We flew into Oakland and met Ben and Whitney for dinner Friday night.

Saturday we got up early and headed to the city. We met Josh's mom and Bob at the Ferry Building. We ate breakfast and toured the farmer's market, the best place on Earth:) We tried lots of tasty samples..this time we made sure Josh didn't get a nut sample! It was the perfect morning.

After the market we went to Miette Confiserie. Yes, we visited Miette's Bakery at the Ferry Building, but I wanted to see the candy store too:)

It is a fun little shop! They have lots of specialty candies and of course their bakery items. We got to chat with Caitlin, one of Miette's master bakers. Josh spoke to her on the phone a couple weeks ago so we were glad she was at the store. Caitlin was very friendly and extremely helpful in giving us macaron advice and encouragement. Of course, I had to sample a couple of macarons...this time I tried Chocolate Lavender and Strawberry. The little cookies never fail to amaze me! They really are little bites of heaven.

Josh wanted to try their old fashioned cupcake so we got one to share. Everything I have tasted at Miette is well worth the calories, so if you are ever in San Francisco stop on in or you can order delicious treats from their website. Miette Bakery. Of course I recommend the macarons!

It was a gorgeous day so we went to Golden Gate Park and the beach next. It was so nice being in the warm sun...we all got a little red but it was worth it!

Saturday night we met Sean and Suzi for dinner at PapaPavlos, our favorite Greek restaurant. Sunday was church and then fun times with the Kelly's! We also had an amazing meal at Whitney's parents house and went on a nature walk by Lodi Lake. Sorry no pictures!! I slacked on Sunday! Sad!

Monday was busy. Josh had a Dr's appointment in SF and then one in Santa Cruz. The drive to Satna Cruz was beautiful! Josh showed me around where he used to live and I got to meet his old roommate, John. We stopped at the beach and had dinner....then we had to go!

We met Ben and Whitney at the airport and said our goodbyes! It was a fantabulous trip! Thanks everyone for a super fun weekend!!

Looks to have been a pretty sweet trip, you guys. We've been wanting to get back out to SF for so long . . . looks like we'll finally have a daytrip there in June when we're out for a week. I'll have to make sure we drop by Ben and Whitney's as well--at least we'll see them in June for your wedding!
