Avery's First Catalina trip

This past weekend we were excited to take Avery over to Avalon for the first time. We took the Express out of Dana Point on Friday and she slept the whole way in her carrier on my chest. The weather was just beautiful, the warmest and least windy it had been all summer, according to Alex's grandparents who spend their summer there every year.  Pat and Al were nice enough to let us come over and spend the weekend with them at their condo, and we had a wonderful time. First thing we did was go to Casino Dock Cafe and get lunch and a pitcher of beer with Grandpa Al.  Saturday, Alex tried out the new zip-lining tour they installed recently and he loved it! Then, we hung out at Descanso and watched the outriggers get loaded up on the grass from the Female Outrigger Catalina Crossing Championships. We took a walk around town to get some pictures with our new camera, and we came home Sunday afternoon.
It was a wonderful and relaxing weekend and we can't wait to do it again! Thanks SO MUCH, Pat and Al it was great spending some quiet time with you both.
Enjoy the pictures!
She did great on the boat, slept the whole way there and home!
