birthday bash.

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

for irv's golden birthday bash we hopped on a boat and made a day trip out to catalina.

the first thing we did when we got there was to rent a bike - and not just any bike. a tandem! neither one of us had ever ridden tandem before. let me tell you, when we first got on i could NOT stop laughing! its harder than it looks! i had to get used to the fact that i couldn't really steer, pedal on my own or see in front of me.

but by the end of the day i loved it and didn't want to give it up!

shortly after getting to the island we were starved and after hunting around for awhile we ended up at the pancake cottage.

funny thing...neither one of us ended up getting pancakes even though they looked amazing.

the rest of the day was spent riding tandem around the city of avalon, watching the sea life (like this seal), exploring, eating and swimming.

this almost made us miss out boat back...but i really wanted one.

once back in newport we met up with some friends for (what was supposed to be a surprise) dinner at garlic jo's.

you can tell when i'm really hungry + love the food because then there aren't many photos. i sampled a little something off almost everyone's plate and i finally got to try garlic ice cream (something i've been wanting to do for years now)!

the garlic ice cream was a little bit of a disappointment - tasted more like vanilla than anything else. i guess i'll just have to continue to dream about going to ggf for garlic ice cream.

turned out to be an amazing day that just went by WAY too fast! vin, i hope you enjoyed - i couldn't have asked for a better day!! :)!

you and irv are so adorable! garlic jo's ice cream is ok; i think the one at The Stinking Rose is better but their food there isn't that great, at least i didn't think so.
mmm food!
