This weekend flew by. Probably because on Saturday we were out and about from sunrise to sunset. We debated what we actually wanted to do this weekend since we had no plans whatsoever. As soon as we got up Saturday morning, we laid out all our options and decided to head to Manhattan Beach.
Our sole purpose of heading out there was to try Manhattan Beach Post. But, we were surprised how much fun we had just roaming around the city. I'll get to that in a minute. We've heard from all of my husband's co-workers about how we needed to get to this place. After probably 3 failed attempts in making reservations, we were about to give up, when an 11a reservation freed up that morning. We took it.
While the photos look appetizing (all thanks to my husband & his camera skills) the food was mediocre at best. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating. It was good. But not great. The restaurant had booth style seats, which are the best kind of seats for a toddler. But other than that, we didn't get what the big deal was. The crowd seemed a bit snooty. We also couldn't believe the price of the meal when we got the bill. But overall, it was a great place to go to, but not go again.
The best of our trip was the walk on the beach after. After devouring most of our meal, we needed to go for a walk and burn some calories. The day was perfect for a beach walk.
We couldn't believe that we'd never taken Michael to the beach. I mean we've driven by it, flown over it, and even went to it but never had Michael touch the sand. He was a bit hesitant to walk on the sand at first. But quickly warmed up. Now the ocean, that will take another trip. We weren't prepared to go into the water either.
A Lemonade pit stop on the way home:
After freshening up at home and going to Mass, it was time for our weekly Disney adventure. (This week it was actually our second time.) There's nothing much I can say, but that you NEED to check out the Iron Man 3 exhibit at Innoventions. NEED to. I'll let the pictures do the talking.
We hope you all had a great weekend too.
