We had a great five day getaway in Capitola over Labor Day weekend. We were lucky to find the cutest cottage - The Rose Cottage - in downtown Capitola just a couple days prior to the trip. It was great for us to get away without having to go too far. We stuffed the car full of baby stuff, babies and us and headed down Highway 1. We stopped at Sam's Chowder House in Half Moon Bay on the way down. They have the best lobster roll and a fabulous view of the bay. It was nice just to have family time and not really have any plans. Living in San Francisco, we have a backyard, but barely use it. So it was nice to wake up in the morning and go sit on the deck behind the cottage and enjoy our morning coffee while Landon ran around. I was able to finish "The Time Traveller's Wife" and catch up on some blogging (not that it did me enough good since I am still so behind). The funniest part of the trip was that Keely (my good friend, Jenny's sister) was in Capitola for the weekend too and their cottage was literally a couple of houses away. So, Keely was able to meet Tatum. It was great for Landon to have all of that "Daddy" time with Carlos too. He loved it! The only issue we had was trying to get him to go to sleep. We ended up having to pull the mattress off of the bed in the guest room and barricade Landon into the room with two chairs since we didn't bring the gate. We will definitely be going back to The Rose Cottage!
