What are the odds that I would have a baby shower in San Diego the same weekend that my Mom and step-dad would have a wedding to attend in San Diego? What a perfect excuse to get together and spend a lazy weekend in a hotel eating lots of food! Woohoo!
We really didn’t do much. It was good for us to just sit a little bit. And nap. And I took Stevie swimming in the hotel pool, which went surprisingly great! Since we weren’t really out and about or sightseeing, I returned home on Sunday evening cursing myself for not taking very many pictures. As I downloaded nearly 200 images, I thought OK. I have more than anyone will ever want to see. As usual.
Side note: I just have to mention that being at the beach for those 20 minutes was such a good thing for me. I grew up near the water. It is in my blood. And as a water-bearer, you can imagine how much it pains me that my son doesn’t feel the same way (and neither does my husband for that matter!) But I’m hoping the more I expose it to Stevie, he will learn to love it. I could have stayed well into the night just feeling the damp air on my skin and watching the twirling patterns form on the sand. I might have even thought about crashing someone’s family vacation, they looked like they were having so much fun.
Not that we didn’t. We are pretty good at the fun too.
