On Wednesday we had a pretty fun family day. I suggested that we go for a nice long walk, that the dog would enjoy it. She has still been getting walks but they are not as scheduled and as long as they used to be. John suggested we try a new spot in Venice for lunch (the restaurant is not new, but we had never been). This took us through a part of the neighborhood we don’t usually walk through which was fun to look at all the different houses/scenery. The baby loves being outside and being in his stroller. He basically slept the whole time. Lunch was delicious and try as I might to remember the name, I cant! Baby brain, sorry! Then we cruised back by the water, stopped into Peets coffee for a freddo (Peets version of a frappacino- but tastier and with real coffee). All in all our walk was probably about 3 or more hours and it was so nice to just slowly take in the day and enjoy it. For some reason it was the first day that felt like what I imagined maternity leave to be like. Just the 3 of us (okay 4 of us, the dog totally counts) slowly enjoying the day, the weather, each other etc.
