We took off for Santa Cruz this morning and really had an amazing time! Of course you had to start the day off right by riding the Giant Dipper (then again a few more times)! My husband and I walked up and down the boardwalk several times...we had the best time people watching while enjoying the famous fried artichoke hearts! We played more video games...went on the haunted house ride (which was mainly in the dark the entire time!) and my husband kept grabbing my arm making me think someone else was...once I would scream he would start laughing! (it wasn't that funny!)
After a full day of being in the sun at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk we went back to the hotel to get ready for our special dinner!
If you have never tried fondue...even if you have...you MUST try the Melting Pot! They start you off with your choice from 6 cheese fondues plus vegetables and bread for dipping...then you move onto your salad...and the main course which was a sampling of fillet, sirloin, garlic & herb chicken, citrus pork tenderloin, mushroom raviolis, red pepper raviolis and veggies cooked in Coq au Vin (herbs, mushrooms, garlic, spices, and wine)...what is crazy about fondue is the portions are perfect without getting too full!...The finale was dark chocolate fondue (yes, I am a dessert junkie!) served with fresh strawberries, bananas, cheesecake, brownies, and marshmallows that are toasted then rolled in either crushed oreos or gram cracker are just a few of the dipper options!
After dinner we walked around downtown San Jose to check out all of the adorable boutiques and the nightlife!
Today was such an amazingly great day and I am totally excited about the Winchester Mystery House tomorrow!!!

This weekend was awesome!!! My husband and I needed a little R&R...life seems so busy sometimes it feels good to take a break from the phones, computer and work!
This is a photo on the way to Courtright Reservoir...We stayed at Wishon Village which is just about 15 minutes away from Courtright Reservoir!
Our weekend was filled with cooking breakfast on the fire together, going for walks, driving to Wishon Reservoir and Courtright Reservoir...we even saw a total of 4 deer!
The weather was a bit chilly at night...but relaxing and being in natures elements were well worth it!
Here are some other pictures from our trip!
YES! It was REALLY COLD!!!!!
