Let me start by admitting just how lazy I truly am. And how much I wasn’t looking forward to what turned out to be a glorious weekend.
Mikes been all tri-man lately and I’ve been all couch potato. So major crossroads are had (and not the glorious B.spears kind). What I considered driving and hotel staying and packing and cheering turned into an easy peasy super fun weekend.
My biggest complaint was that my beloved body pillow didn’t make the trip. All hail the pregnancy pillow.
We picked lex up from school on Friday and hit the road to sunny san Diego. We hit the pool, the park, lex got some new sneaks, and mike let me eat at my favorite restaurant of ALL TIME (just to butter me up a bit with browned butter and mizerthra cheese).
lex requested i take pictures of her before school. . . and i hope this is a phase that never ends.
saturday we headed to the san diego zoo. which is like the bomb diggity of all zoos. i swear my zoo experiences shall never be the same. we got there early bird status at 9am and had the zoo to ourselves.
well us and the flamingos. which we got to feed. flamingo’s are lex’s jam. possibly because they’re pink. but when she learned she got to get up close n personal with a flock she was over the moon.
sunday was race day. mike has been killing it lately in triathlons. while lex has been killing it in sideline dance moves.
this handsome devil took EIGHTH in his age group (which is like the hardest age group evah) and 50-something overall (out of like 600 people!). we’re oh, so proud. especially since this was his first olympic distance tri.
ready for an action shot?
since then my days have been filled with disney, disney, oh and more disney.
monday i got to experience disney sans stroller and met up with my bff smulie and her hawt husband jon. after that i felt so guilty for leaving lex lex at home we decided that a mother/princess disney day was a complete necessity.
and now i need at least 3 weeks at home to recoup.
