Newport Beach 3


We had a lovely day 3 at Crystal Cove, exploring the beach & tide pools. Then spent the rest of the afternoon at the hotel pool (where I continued my recuperation by reading & sleeping).



Then in the evening we had a lovely dinner (thanks mom & dad Carter) at Cheesecake Factory. Seriously people, if you haven't had the Bang, Bang Chicken & Shrimp you need to go now. It will change your life!


Then we spent the night enjoying our cheesecake & playing Monopoly: The Card Game.

We're home again, it was a lovely really short trip but so much fun to relax a bit, get some sun, & play with the fabulous Carlson Family!

Crystal Cove! Love it there!

I am going to the Cheesecake Factory this weekend, and I have been looking for food suggestions. I know what I like there, but I have been feeling so off that I never know what I will be in the mood for, so I need a long list of possibilities. I will add Bang Bang Chicken and Shrimp to the list! Thanks!
