John is an OBGYN, so the evening that we arrived he took us into his office and gave us our first ultrasound! I was only 6.5 weeks along at the time so we really were not expecting to see much - but to our surprise we saw and heard the baby's heartbeat! It was amazing and so surreal. We also were happy to see that there was only ONE baby in there! Twins do not run in our families, but hey - it's still a big relief! :)
(I realize you can barely see anything, but along the bottom is the heartbeat)!
We spent our days walking through Balboa Park or down on the beach, drinking coffee and trying new restaurants. Our friends Charisse and Brad, who moved down to Palm Springs last Fall, drove down for a day and we were able to grab a couple meals with them and catch up!
Hilary's 29th birthday was another reason we planned the trip as we did! We went out to a delicious brunch the day before her birthday with several of their friends and then brought the party back to the house for some Xbox Kinect Dance Central! Good times :)
Thanks Hil and John for being amazing hosts - we can't wait to come visit again!
