Well...It has been two years since Russ and I got married and we decided to celebrate in San Diego. We took Noah with us for two reasons: 1) he still gets the boob 2) he's too much fun to leave behind!
The Zoo was a blast! We went on Fri. so it wasn't too crowded and the weather was pretty nice. It was definitely warm, but not as scorching as the desert. The polar bears were sooo cute and all the monkeys were hilarious. They were for sure our favorites.
The best story of the day happened at the orangutang (I think I butchered that one) exhibit. First of all, the big male was trying so desperately to make love to one of the females. She would push away constantly and he would literally pick up her bottom and put it on him. Russ was getting a kick out of it. Next, we had Noah in his stroller pushed up right against the glass. The baby orangutang ran up, stopped right in front of him, and the two babies just stared at each other for a moment. They just sat there and looked at each other knowing the other was a baby too. It was sooooooo cute! People around us ooohed and awwwed.
After a long day of walking up and down steep hills at the zoo we decided to head to a delicious, much anticipated dinner at a seafood restaurant called Anthony's. It is downtown and right on the water. We had awesome crabcakes! Usually crabcakes are too rich, but these were perfect, I would totally recommend it. Next, we had yummy clam chowder. I wouldn't say it was the best I ever had, but it ranks really high up. Fisherman's wharf in San Fran is pretty hard to beat. Then we shared a plate that had fried shrimp, scallops, and fish. It was all very delish.
After dinner, we went to Seaport Village for a stroll. I hadn't been there since I was little. It was fun to walk by the water.
The next day we headed to Coronado. We walked around, drove around, and had an early dinner at Peohe's. We wanted to rent bikes, but we knew it would be difficult with Noah. Plus, we were pretty tired from all the walking the day before that we just wanted to relax. I decided that if we ever had the money, I would want to live in Coronado.
All in all, we had a great anniversary weekend. I can't wait for more to come! I love my boys so much!
