birthday weekend

Rob and I celebrated our birthdays last weekend in Catalina. We had been planning to go away for the weekend, but Rob decided to keep the destination a surprise until the last minute. This was the first time Rob surprised me with a weekend away and I loved it! {Honey, you can surprise me with a weekend away anytime!}

Here's our birthday weekend in pictures:

Ready to sail away (we totally didn't plan to match)
Our bed & breakfast
Our first roam around the island
Arcade time...
"I lost"


More roaming, except Rob wouldn't walk on the dirt with his new Jacks



Sunday, Rob's birthday, we rented a golf cart and explored for a few hours.


We hung out at this point for a couple of hours, just reading and relaxing. It was perfect! The view and weather was awesome!


Rob reading his iPhone


It was my turn to take the wheel...
Thirsty birdy
We left in peace with ice cream in hand
Final photographs as we sailed away...

Until next time, Catalina. We really enjoyed your beauty and it was the perfect way to ring in 31 and 36!

I've never been to Catalina either. Hubbs was just commenting to me this weekend that we should try to go for a little get away. Looks like a nice time! :)
