5th Anniversary Trip

Since Montecito is about an hour and half away from LAX and we had to wake up super early on Saturday for our flight, Thursday we headed back down to the LA area.  Our anniversary was the next day so we thought there was no better place to spend it then our favorite place - The Beverly Hills Hotel.  Unlike our usual trips we didn't plan to be on the go as much and more relax at the hotel.

They had the kindest treat waiting for us - a ferris wheel of cupcakes with pictures from our previous stays and pajamas for Tatum.  We spent what was left of the afternoon enjoying the pool area and then enjoyed dinner there at the hotel.  There's no bedtime on vacation, right?  At this point Tatum was caught up on the time difference and did great through the night.

The next morning we went out for a little bit - there was a Louis Vuitton in town for a couple more weeks, we did a little shopping and had an anniversary lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, il pastaio.

The majority of the day was spent at the pool and we all had a blast.  The weather was on the hotter side - upper 80's - with the amount of people there it felt like we were still in mid summer and hard to believe in a few days we'd be home adjusting to a new fall schedule.

Friday night we celebrated our fifth anniversary - we had a wonderful meal complete with champagne and a funfetti soufflĂ© at the Polo Lounge.  The blurry photo was the best we got of the three of us but Tatum did sit still in his seat to let us enjoy our anniversary so that's a win.

A hotel hallway is the perfect place for a little guy to get out some energy.  By the end of our stay, Tatum would be reaching up for our key, run to the room and hold it up to the door trying to let us all in.  Until next time!
