Last weekend was a three day holiday due to President’s Day so we decided to take a trip south. We left on Saturday morning arriving in Monterey around 10: 30 AM to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It is good to get there early before the crowds of tourists who usually show up around noon.
It is now 4:07 AM on January 14th, 2017. The holidays of Christmas and New Year are distant memories that seem to have happened long, long ago.
The time off was not relaxing due to two little boys. Yes, we had fun and yes we made great memories but with two little ones there is no free time, no relaxation. I’ll enjoy the holiday breaks more when they are older and I have time to do the things I want to do: relax, read, take a nap, watch an adult movie, mountain bike, hike, and many other things. But at the same time I will also miss the kid versions of them so it becomes a complete catch-22.
It is now 5:32 AM. I woke up earlier than usual and so went to the gym earlier then usual and thus have more time than I normally do this morning.
Let’s start with this past weekend. We went down for “A Day Out With Thomas.” The purpose of the trip really was to join friends and get a picture in front of the life sized Thomas. Ren isn’t nearly into Thomas as Kai was; this is due to the fact that Kai has moved on and Ren wants to play with the same things as Kai. All of this costs about $200 but it makes a decent memory.
