Monterey, California July 27 2008


We took a fun little jont to Monterey for our second anniversary. Can you believe it?Two years! I was pretty excited when I noticed they had our anniversary date on the thingy.

We had a fun time riding the the cute little green trolley around town.

Kory did a great job selecting our hotel for the night. We stayed at a place called Spindrift Inn. It was right on the beach and had really pretty views. Our room even had a wood burning fire place.

Our room had an awesome bay window where we could sit and look out at the ocean.

Kory didn't even pose for this picture. He was positioned like this on his own and I couldn't resist so I snapped I quick picture before he even knew what I was doing.

We saw advertisements for the History Wax Museum and decided it would be fun to go. We thought it was going to be really cool, but it was nothing like what we expected.
It ended up being a bunch of really old wax people that didn't look real at all set in historical scenes. We wouldn't recommend going.

Kory was so excited when he realized how close Pebble Beach was. We paid the $10.00 just to drive around the Pebble Beach area. The golf courses were really well kept and the area as a whole was very picturesque. Kory was in heaven the whole drive long.

We ate at Bubba Gumps. The food was really good and it was pretty cool to see all the Forrest Gump memorabilia around inside.

Lucky for us it was a bit chilly in Monterey so we had no problem building a fire in our little fireplace.

The Inn provided a nice breakfast which they brought right to our room. It was really funny because we didn't know they were going to bring the breakfast INTO our room. As soon as Kory opened our door the lady walked right in, all they way across the room, and placed the platter in the bay window. I was a bit embarrassed laying there in bed watching her tip toe around all of the chocolate kisses I had put all over the floor, not to mention the other things laying on the floor. It was really funny and awkward to say the least.

The past two years have been more fun and exciting than I could have hoped for. I couldn't ask for a better husband. Kory is the perfect person for me in every way. There is no one else I'd rather spend the rest of forever with than him. I am so blessed to have him in my life. Thanks for everything sweetie! Love you! Happy Anniversary.

Oh man that was so awesome to see your pics. It was all too familiar. I spent about a year and a half there and I loved every minute of it. I do agree that it can get pretty cold. I really hope that you guys made it to the other side of Monterey there's plenty more to see and I just hope that you got the chance. I used to run along the beach everyday and I would always go right passed where you guys stayed. Well congrats you two. Let Meg and I know when you're in town again. Well it might actually have to wait until I get back.
