We decided to take a break from the madness of everyday life, only to enter into even more madness of travelling with a 4 month old and 2 wild children in a minivan up the coast. We had always wanted to take the girls to Monterrey Bay Aquarium so we sucked it up and got in the minivan. We chose this date because it was the 2nd week of Carmen’s cycle where she felt good enough to go on a quick getaway.
We left the house at around 5am to take advantage of peace and quiet, and to avoid traffic. Audrey did us a huge favor by sleeping 4 hours in the van. Olivia and Ella were really good watching videos as Carmen and I enjoyed the drive.
After a few days there, we headed to Half Moon Bay. By this time, Carmen’s stomach was feeling much better and aside from the fatigue of treatment she was doing really well. No one would ever suspect anything was wrong with her. In fact she was healthier than me as I kept getting sick throughout all of this.
Fun times indeed.
