Due to our 3 day weekend (teaching holidays=awesomeness!), we decided to head to Cambria for the day. Being only a 30 min. drive away, it really is a shame we don’t go here more often, especially since it’s known as one of the prettiest places in all of CA.
Also, the day could not have been more perfect. 66 degrees and sunny!
First, we went to Moonstone Beach and ate a picnic.

Once we were done eating, we hiked down to the rocks, babies and all!
We finally learned how to use the panoramic function on our iphones. About time!!!
We found a little crab
It was low tide, so we were able to walk all over the beach and rocks
Our gorgeous girl
Gregory could not stop talking during all of this. He was so thrilled with all the scenery!
After our walk on the beach, we took a small hike/walk into the trees and to another lookout point.
Again, isn’t this function on the iPhone AWESOME?
After we tired the boys out, we went in search of a hole-in-the-wall cookie bakery that we’d heard rave reviews about. It’s the oddest little place, tucked into a STORAGE facility, of all places, but it was beyond worth it. For $12, we got 8 of the BEST cookies I’ve ever eaten. Seriously. They are already starting to franchise the business after just 2 years because they’ve been so wildly successful!
The label on the side says it all
Didn’t believe me when I said it was in a storage facility?
He said that often, they have so much business that they have to hide their signs! And people still come!

These cookies definitely lived up to their name!
We also got lemon…oh man, were they good!
Caitlin could not believe how amazing they were!
All 3 kids fell asleep shortly after we left the bakery, so Jesse and I decided to drive 15 minutes up the coast to the place where he proposed!
7.5 years since he gave me my gorgeous ring!
I like remembering the day he gave it to me 🙂 Today, I got to tell Caitlin all about it and walk her to the very spot! She claims she wants to have her wedding here someday.
It’s easy to see why people love to come here!
