So it was a busy week/weekend. The weekend consisted of a drive to and from San Diego in one day for a friend's wedding in the SD temple. It was beautiful and so worth the drive. Especially because we got an all-day sitter with Shad and Lizzie and made the drive with them, toddler free! We enjoyed a leisurely lunch at CPK afterwards, with very little food thrown, worn, or spit out. Food actually tastes so much better without those sorts of distractions. Go figure. Then we drove by the beach and the cove, just to feel a little of the ocean air, but didn't have time to get out... had to start back for the reception back home. It was a relaxing drive, what with the lack of pirate’s booty soaring through the air, Little Einsteins in the background, and constant fetching of the sippy cup and binky... not to mention of course the sweet sound of repeat tantrums. But we missed her to death, seeing as we had to leave at 7:30 in the morning and didn't get back from the local reception until 11 pm. It was a long day. And picking her up from the crib at Lizzie's house to bring her home was the best part of it. (It might have helped that she was half asleep which means SO cuddly and sweet.)
The other pictures are just cute ones of Sophia and her new flip flops, a fun day at the pool... and breakfast with my sweet friends for my birthday last Wednesday. That night Ross took me to Haleiwa Joes for a yummy dinner and gave me some thoughtful gifts. He's really good at the gift thing... and he stocks up of course so he'll have some left for Mother's Day as well. I got a couple of cute tops, a white skirt from Anthropology! (He knows I love it but will never pay the money, so he just picked me out a skirt... guts huh), a couple of CD's and a grill pan. That was between the two holidays. So now it's Tuesday, two days after Mother's Day, 6 after my birthday, and 12 after our Anniversary... and I'm feeling 'em. The post-holiday blues. My month is over. Sigh.
