We were treated to a great vacation this week by my in-laws. We had a wonderful time of shopping and eating! And some baby breaks too.
 
Amazing Hot Chocolate from Pastries and Petals.
We love everything they bake there. Some of the things we ate included a Brie and Apricot Panini, Ham, Spinach and Tomato Quiche, Raspberry Scones, Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwich with Chocolate Fudge filling…the list goes on.

 
My husband carrying Oliver; we got good use out of his yoda hat in the cold, windy weather.

One of the many cute cottages; every fence and gate is different.

Bathing Oliver in the sink; he loves his bath time.

A Resting Buddha Sculpture in the Secret Garden. One of our favorite places to browse; just as good for spending an afternoon is the Pilgrim’s Way Bookstore connected in front of the Secret Garden.

The Drive Home to Socal: A smoky sunset with a plume over the ocean
