Denise's Last Day in California

Well it was Denise's last day in California, so we started it out by getting more sun. Just what she needs right? She was darking than me when she got here and I've here for 5 weeks! haha Well she laid out while I worked and then I joined her in the afternoon. We got a few more rays in before we had to get ready for dinner.

We realized that Denise has now spent three birthdays with my mom. Her spring break seems to fall around Easter a lot and my mom's birthday is the 11th, so this is the third birthday she's been here for. We went to San Clemente on the pier and ate at this restaurant called Fisherman's Restaurant. Real original! But they had great crab legs and some of the best clam chowder I've ever eaten. My dad said at one point, how have we been here 8 years and never known about this place?! Well let me take a stab at it.........YOU GUYS NEVER TRY NEW THINGS! :-)

It was a little windy and chilly by the water and the two small heaters that the waitress assured us would keep us warm did not convince me so we ate inside. Still great view and actual warmth. Plus I had spent so much time on my hair, why sit outside and have it blown to pieces? haha

So Denise leaves this morning. Were heading out to the airport in about an hour. It will be nice to have a few more days with my parents before I actually go home. I think I might actually golf with my dad Saturday! I've been here 6 weeks now and have yet to go. Wish me luck! I haven't picked up a club in about a year! Could be scary! :-)

I talked Denise into buying this shirt. It's out of her norm. No lace and not exactly a tank and not fitted. She actually loved it and it looked great on her! I can be very convincing when I want to be. haha

So it was a little windy! That would not by pregnant mother pose.......I was trying to make sure my shirt didn't blow away!

That's a little better. My dad said, "try not to make it look like you're freezing!" I thought we pulled it off!

Mom is turning 55 this year! Can you believe it?! She doesn't look it at all! Now her memory at times gives away her age! haha

It looks like I'm sitting in the backseat for this picture! :-)

The dessert was huge. We forgot to check later if that's actually what they give away for birthdays or if we got charged for that monster happy birthday dessert. It was mocha and Dad and I hate coffee, so Denise and Mom had a hay day. Mom kept trying to say that you couldn't taste the coffee! I said, "you're immune to it! Believe me, I can taste it!" :-)
