August 10 marked 5 years of marriage for Scott and me. Woo-hoo! We had the chance to get away for a few days, sans babies (thanks, Mom and Dad) and enjoy 3 nights at this gorgeous beach house in Laguna Beach (thanks, Bucks). We went out for dinner a couple of times--and we were reminded of what restaurants are like without crayons on paper menus and booster seats. We enjoyed uninterrupted conversations with each other and went for walks at sunset.
On our anniversary we took a short drive up to Newport Beach and rented a double kayak for the afternoon. Note for next time: have an extra bottle of sunscreen in the car for such adventures. Nothing sets the amorous mood on your anniversary like having a fresh sunburn.
This picture was taken in the front yard of the house we stayed at. You can't really tell from the picture, but just beyond the tree is a beautiful ocean view!
On the beach at sunset the evening of our anniversary. Scott took me to a really nice restaurant for dinner and then to Splashes, a restaurant within a hotel right on the beach, for dessert. Good times!
