After our hospital visit of the last post - like, literally, 12 hours after - Sody and I headed to Monterey. Why, you ask? Well, I unexpectedly found myself with no babysitting work for the week (Random Event #1) and my parents just happened to be in Monterey for a little romantic getaway (Random Event #2). Since those two random events rarely happen at the same time, we decided to take advantage of it and crash my parents' party. We lived it up: getting soaked at the beach and eating fancy food and sleeping on the floor of the fancy digs and Sody making her first trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Thanks for letting us ruin your romantic weekend, Grandma and Grandpa! We loved it.
