Crazy Holiday Weekend!

True to form, we spent the last 72 hours driving a few hundred miles and attending no less 3 parties and hosting one at our house!
We began this crazy weekend by driving to Newport to have lunch with our good friend Nancy and Lucas at the Cannery before settling into our home-away-from-home for the weekend, the apartment above Alex's grandparents on Lido Island.
That night, thanks to Yaya and Papa staying behind with a very tired toddler, Alex and I were able to attend a surprise birthday party for our friend Julie in Irvine, thrown by her husband Shai. We had a great time catching up with them (they live in NY!) and eating delicious food, Avery-free.
Saturday, we decided to take a quick trip to Valencia to attend another surprise birthday party, this time a lunch at BJ's for my dad, thrown by his wife Katherine. We stopped by the Coleman's to exchange some Christmas gifts then we were on the road again!
Saturday night was the annual Newport Boat Parade party at Alex's grandparent's house. As always, we had a great time seeing those we haven't seen in a long time and of course, showing Avery off to our many admiring family and friends. She didn't stay awake for the parade, but she missed it because it was a really good one this year! There were many really impressively decorated boats.
We topped the weekend off by having breakfast at Charlie's Chili where Alex's cousin Jessica works, and then we hurried home to get our house ready for our first Holiday Family Sweater Party! We had a great time with all our friends, and Avery loved sharing her toys with all the kiddos that joined us.
This holiday season has been so much fun this year, I can't wait until Christmas this weekend!
Enjoy the pictures!
