Today we went on a road trip out to the desert in the Eastern part of San Diego County and visited Lake Morena. The drive was beautiful and I just loved getting out of the city into the open expanses and boulder strewn mountains of the desert. This was our first real trip in our new Honda Odyssey minivan and I have to say, it was awesome. Forget everything bad I’ve ever said about minivans. It was comfortable, convenient, and Rachel was able to nurse the boys in the third row. We may not have looked good doing it, but who am I trying to impress? Besides, it’s not like I have any dignity left anyway. I lost that when I decided that I love elastic-waist pants.
