One of Those People

 I've turned into one of those people that takes most of my pictures with my phone camera.
So this is what I have to show for my birthday week.

Went to Beach Break for breakfast with some friends (above).
Sound familiar? That's what I chose last year, too.
It's my favorite.
They have a new location @ the Oceanside Harbor that was fun.
And since our waiter couldn't understand why we would choose an ocean background over a restaurant one, I borrowed his hat to show where we were.

The rest of my birthday was spent shopping, eating,
going to Owen's baseball game, and then eating some more.
Love watching his games.
They were nice to win for me that day.

Justin was supposed to have my birthday off, but due to a mix-up at work he had to go in.
So we went to Disneyland the next day.
It wasn't very crowded so we got to do some rides that we normally avoid.

This was our very first time doing the Casey Jr. Train.

A pleasant first.

An unpleasant first was the ferris wheel at California Adventure.
 We chose riding in a gondola that swings.
It brought Owen to tears and made Justin sick.
Sally was trying so hard to be tough but it got to her, too.
Drew and I were the only ones that could handle it, but even so...don't ever need to do that again.

Friday met some Monterey friends at the beach.

And Saturday had dinner with them, too.

And now I'm wishing I had another birthday this week.

Those swInging gondolas are a nightmare!! I cried the first time we went on it- I was holding a baby and no one warned me. I'm glad you got to go, even f it was a day later- you are so lucky to live there!

Firstly, happy belated birthday! I try to celebrate for days if not weeks, also.
I'm also that person that takes photos with my iPhone.
The swinging gondolas don't work for us, either.
And that last picture of Sally is ADORABLE!!
