After lunch we made our way to the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory and indulged in a giant sundae...Adam wanted caramel, and I wanted a banana split, so we settled on hot fudge. :)
My sweet-aholic...less than 5 minutes after our gigantic sundae, my sweetie had to have a cupcake from Kara's Cupcakes, a bakery specializing in cupcakes made from organic ingredients. Can we say kid in a candy store?
We spent a little bit of time walking around the stores downtown...I had to get a pic of the three-story Williams Sonoma! Amanda, my dear cook-of-a-friend, this one is for you! How I wished you were there to look around with me...I only stayed a minute or two because the boys weren't nearly as interested. I could hear beautiful voices singing as I walked into this wonderland! Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah! (Hallelujah chorus, Handel's Messiah, written 1741, am I making you music history buff's proud?!?!)
Our last day we drove around Monterey. We started with a trip to the aquarium, which was incredible. My brother used to read about this aquarium as a child, and now he has a student pass that allows him to visit whenever he wants. We had a blast looking at the huge fish.
Then it was off to drive on Highway 1 and see the beach! Did I mention Adam was sick? The last day of our trip he woke up with a sore throat...by that night he had a fever and chills. Poor baby. He was such a trooper, standing on the cold beach with me! You are the best!Last week we had a wonderful visit with our nephews and Adam's side of the family--I will post about that soon. Right now we are in Chicago for a music conference at Willowcreek. We are having a good time, but I am ready to get back to my little four-legged snuggle-muffin! I miss her so and am ready to not leave her again for a long time!
