Runyon Cannon, WeHo & Bel Air

On Wednesday we were up and out early to go for a hike at Runyon Cannon - we'd tried to do this for a few years but something always came up (it was shut down, it was too hot, etc.) so we were happy to finally make it!  It was a good work out and we saw some great views of the city.

We drove around Hollywood for a little bit after and into the hills past some gorgeous homes.  We decided not to take the time to get out and walk around the Hollywood strip this time and just went back to the hotel for lunch at the Cabana Cafe.

We spent the afternoon swimming, playing and enjoying some quiet time during Tatum's nap which became our daily afternoon routine.  We left the pool earlier than usual today because we had a babysitter coming for Tatum that night so we could go out!

After we got Tatum settled we set out for our usual date night spot - Craig's.  A fun setting and the best American/Italian food - "the boys" dessert pizza is a must to finish the meal.  I later saw most of the BH housewives were in at about 9:30 for dinner - bummed to miss but that was around our usual bedtime on this trip, ha!

Craig's is right around the corner from Sur and Pump and down the street from Tom Tom - since it was new we figured we'd go for a drink to end the night.  There was a short line to get in and you had to have a seat even if just for a drink.  

The next morning was back to being all about Tatum (who did great with his babysitter the night before!) - we went to Peek-a-Boo Playland in Bel Air - similar to some play areas around here with plenty of things for toddlers to play with.  Not too far was the Beverly Glen Deli so we grabbed sandwiches for lunch outside.

We setup at the pool for our final afternoon of relaxing and palm trees - we were just going to eat at the hotel tonight so we didn't really have a time frame.  

Tatum slept late so we got some appetizers and enjoyed happy hour by the pool.  Ben Simmons, one of the star players for the Sixers came down to the pool area and while we never stop celebrities when we see them there, we decided to ask for a picture for Tatum and he was great about it.

We freshened up, got our final things packed up and finished our trip with dinner inside at The Polo Lounge.  We'd fed Tatum before so he relaxed in his pajamas in his stroller watching a show and getting tired for bed.  Our flight was super early the next morning which got us home around 4pm our time... Until next time, California!


  1. Such a great day! I would love to know how you guys find sitters on vacation - that would be amazing for our next one! So nice of the BBall player to stop and take a photo! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Y'all have the BEST trips!!! I am so sad you missed the Housewives- BH is my favorite and I love the ladies! So sweet of the basketball player to hold Tatum- although he looks like "ummm what do I do with him?!" ha! :)
