While we were in California, Helen gave Brandon and I such a great gift. She took both kids for an entire day! No time schedule or anything! We headed out in the morning for our date day.
Our first stop was, of course, Starbucks. :) With coffee in hand, we headed to Roger's Gardens in Newport Beach to walk around and relax. It is this beautiful plant nursery that grows some amazing things! Next up it was a stop at Home Goods for some fun shopping for the house and then onto an amazing lunch at the Crab Cooker! There is nothing quite as good as amazing seafood right next to the beach. After a very relaxing lunch, we headed to South Coast Plaza for a fun afternoon of wandering the mall and shopping. We love doing this together. We met up with Blake and Sarah for dinner at BJs and then went for drinks and cigars (for the boys) and dessert (for the girls) at Taps. Seriously, such a fun and needed day!

Crab cakes and clam chowder started our meal off perfectly.

Such a great patio at Taps.
