I hope you all had wonderful weekends and productive weeks (last week). As you know from last week's post, we were busy in California for some of N's residency interviews! Here are a few photos from our trip - stay tuned this week for a post about traveling with a baby/toddler (now that we've traveled with Liv at 6 months, 7 months, 8 months, and 14 months)!
Santa Monica was absolutely gorgeous! Liv was a bit worried about the sand at first (this wasn't her first time at a beach, but it was her first time at a beach now that she could walk). N got her comfortable and in no time we couldn't pull her away from the sand! It was funny to see so many people in full coats with fur trim - it was 65 degrees! It's all relative of course :)
We spent some time checking out Westwood and Hollywood - I even got to spend time with my friend I traveled through Europe with (it had been 4 years since we last saw each other)! Funny to think this was our first time hanging out on U.S. soil haha! Liv couldn't get enough of the view and breeze from the Griffith Observatory!
To save money we booked all of our stays through Airbnb and could not have been happier with our places! They were both absolutely beautiful and cheaper than even the cheapest motels in the area.
Our last stop was the Palo Alto area and an evening trip to San Francisco. It was all so beautiful! Thanks for a great week, California!
Here are some of the pieces from our trip! As always our Ergobaby was a lifesaver (but more on that and other travel necessities later this week)!
