Beverly Hills

On Saturday we made our way up the coast for the second part of our trip to Beverly Hills.  This was probably one of our best weather years - it never got above 78 and was usually sunny.  Our room was ready early so we dropped all our stuff off and Tatum was loving his new crib.

We went over to Rodeo Drive for a little bit of shopping as well as lunch at Villa Blanca - we usually do our walking around on a weekday so it was a little too crowded for us and we didn't last long.

The rest of the day was a great pool day - again as it was a weekend it was pretty crowded but we scored three chairs together and some shade for Tatum.  We ended up staying out until 6:30 to let him play and pretty much had the pool to ourselves by the end.

To keep things easy for our first night we ate at the hotel at the Polo Lounge which is always one of our favorite meals... plus with a baby it's nice to only have to walk a few steps to dinner! Tatum was asleep before our drinks even came and did great all through dinner and right back to sleep in his crib after.

The next morning I enjoyed some reading on the patio while the boys slept in.  We walked around the property for a bit until it was time for breakfast.

We ate at the Fountain Coffee Room - a cute little quick breakfast spot where you sit at the counter - the ladies even nicely strapped Tatum into a booster seat.  We had plans to take him to a park but it was under construction so we just drove around a little bit until the sun popped out.

Since it was a Sunday we knew the pool would be crowded and that was our only plan for the day so we grabbed the first cabana and it worked amazing with Tatum - they even brought down a pack n play for him to play and nap in.

When he got his crib, waiting for him in it was a teddy bear and VIP card - such cute extras! He had fun playing with both the whole time - loving t hold on to anything he can, he loved holding his little card.

We walked right over to the  Cabana Cafe for lunch and Tatum kicked and floated much of the day in the pool - I don't know what we'll do with him when summer is over!

We had a babysitter that night so we cleaned up and made our way out for the night!  First stop was dinner at Craig's, one of our favorites any time that we're in town.  We grabbed a drink at Pump after and then headed back to the hotel.

The rest of our stay tomorrow...
