Monday – After leaving about 30 minutes late (my fault), we made it to San Diego to have lunch at CPK with Holly, Isaac and baby Ezekiel. Could Ezekiel be any cuter?
After lunch, Rob and I headed to the Bodies Exhibition. Wow, that was pretty cool! It was amazing to see the innards of how our bodies work. I’ve never been one for anatomy, but I really enjoyed this exhibit. It was definitely enhanced by the audio guide – I mostly listened to the kids version. I tried the adult one, but it got very technical and frankly, a bit boring. I just wanted the top-line to each display. Rob saw Body Worlds a couple years ago in Chicago and actually liked that version better. I guess Body Worlds 3 is coming to LA in a year, we definitely recommend checking it out.
A funny story: When Rob and I walked in to the exhibit, he recognized the greeter and turns out she was one of Rob’s high school girlfriends. While she was really nice and gave us a discount and also the audio guide for free, I felt a bit uncomfortable. Not jealous, more like I was being checked out, which always makes me feel self-conscious. I’m sure it was just me feeling that way, but needless to say, I was relieved when we left.
We spent the night at my dad’s and had dinner at a local Mexican restaurant down the street from his place. It was really nice to catch up with my dad and just relax with him.
Tuesday – We woke up very early to have breakfast with Laura and Jeff. I ate banana pancakes and they were good, but Egg’s Etc. in Long Beach has a fluffier recipe. It was such a gorgeous day in La Jolla.
"Vacation Rob" (us pale people need an umbrella)
Our next mini-vacation is Santa Barbara. We leave on Sunday and return on Wednesday. Rob starts his first consulting assignment on the 6th, so our time is quickly coming to an end, but I’m so thankful for the time we’ve had together!
