One weekend we were down visiting our friends and stumbled on the most amazing place in Malibu to have a picnic. We originally wanted to go to the Malibu Wines vineyard but arrived to find out no kids are allowed. So with our picnic and wine we purchased at the vineyard we arrived at the Malibu Bluffs park across from Pepperdine University. It's such a hidden gem and great place to take kids for a picnic. They have a little playground area, huge grassy space and amazing views. We've gone back a few times for a picnic this summer and decided it would be great thing to do this weekend. We picked up delicious sandwiches at Bay Cities in Santa Monica, well worth the wait (45 minutes to be exact, however we learned to place our order online an hour ahead of time to by pass the wait) and headed to Malibu. The weather was perfect, the traffic getting there wasn't too bad and we enjoyed the afternoon in the sun. After hanging out and relaxing at the park we headed over to the Malibu County Mart for some ice cream... another wonderful place to just hang out! Mila was so happy to be with her friend Kona the dog.
