Hi! I am so sorry I haven’t been in touch this past week but I was in California on a family vacation and we had an amazing time! We spent a few days in San Francisco exploring the city, taking a tour of Alcatraz and Muir Woods, and walking through China Town. Demi is almost fluent in Mandarin so she found this especially fascinating.
We also took a drive out to Napa Valley and had the honor to be hosted by Beringer in Napa Valley. We took a tour and then had a private dinner in the Hudson House, which was built in 1852. What a treat – one we will remember for a long time!
We also visited Pebble Beach and Carmel – so beautiful and so different from South Florida. I think the water temperature out there was 55 degrees…. in the middle of summer! As soon as we got home the kids wanted to go straight to Lago Mar and jump in the ocean, which is 86 degrees.
Right away they noticed the two new beautiful Tiki Huts by our big swimming pool on the beach. Then they ran into Chef Phil and asked him how his new Kids Menu was coming along. The girls are thrilled about the Kids Cobb Salad, the turkey burger and the Whole Wheat Penne Pasta with Broccoli. The boys love quesadillas so they are excited about those, and everyone thinks the Choice of Grilled Steak, Chicken, or Fish of the Day with a healthy side is a great idea!
The girls are playing tennis every afternoon this week and next, so we will be spending a lot of time at the resort. We love running into our members and catching up on their summers. Hope to see you soon!
