Well, I know this was 2 MONTHS ago now, but I am still catching up on all of the fun Kamman goings-on, so bear with me 🙂
Before we even left Colorado, Sol and I were already plotting our next adventure to maximize our time off for Christmas break. A few days after we returned to California, we left for a central coast New Years Eve trip. We left on New Years eve with a stop in Folsom to see the Desais and meet baby Finn. He is SO tiny and adorable!
That afternoon we drove to the Blakemans chic downtown San Francisco pad for a fun New Years eve celebration. We ate tofu lasagna, drank champagne, played Apples to Apples and skyped with Bianca before heading out on the town. We went to a fun Irish pub and then walked to a party that their neighbor was throwing to ring in the New Year with dancing and more champagne. This is also about when my bout with the stomach flu attacked- but I did not let it ruin my fun! We had a great time ringing in the new year with Casey and Leslie. The next morning we went to breakfast at the diner next door and then headed to Monterey.
In Monterey we stayed with Liz, Martin and baby Sage Suro at their cozy house in Pacific Grove. The New Years day weather was gorgeous, warm and clear, and as soon as we arrived we went immediately to Carmel beach to play. The sea air was intoxicating and it felt so good to be back on our old stomping grounds! That night we had a delicious meal, delicious wine, more games, more giggling and good company at the Suros. The next day we had a leisurely morning and then headed off to do touristy things around Monterey with Liz, and then enjoyed the obligatory bread bowl of wharf clam chowder. We had a great time seeing friends and visiting places we love, and it was a perfect way to ring in the new year!
