This past weekend Walker and I were able to visit California. We were brave and left the kids behind. I sure missed them. But it was nice to sleep in and have some alone time. Don't judge.

We left late Thursday night. On the plane, Walker got to chat with the VP of Maxim (not the magazine). That was a little thrill for him.

We arrived in San Jose about 11:00pm. With the help of our trusty GPS, in our rented car, we were able to make it to the hotel before midnight, despite having to re-work our route due to accidents. Cindy, the GPS, made our trip more enjoyable on the whole. There was no need for maps or dealing with getting lost. Amazing!

Walker was in meetings on Friday so I got to lay in bed and do... wait for it... absolutely nothing! I even had breakfast in bed by myself! Our hotel, Cypress Hotel, was really nice. I especially loved the polka dot and animal print theme. I'm serious.

That evening we visited Stanford University. Gorgeous campus. My favorite part was seeing two old professors, with beards and pipes, arguing. Classic.

On Saturday we drove up to San Francisco. We got to see the Golden Gate Bridge, ate lunch at Fisherman's Wharf, and had dessert at Ghirardelli's.

We had a fun trip. But the best was coming back to our sweet little kiddies. They're the cutest! Thanks to the Fords and Christina for watching them!

That is so awesome! Devon and I honeymooned in that area and have such fond memories! I'm glad you got a weekend away, it always feels so good, too bad it doesn't happen more often.

I'm glad you guys could take a trip. I fully support leaving the kids at home. Babies on vacation is not my idea of a fun time.

That sounds like it was so great! I would love to go on some sort of vacation and leave the kids (I would miss them of course.) I bet you had a blast.
