Weekend getaway: Day 1
Let me start by saying we had a fabulous time. This little getaway was a long time a-coming....like 6 months or so. Caleb's first ever baseball game was a Dodger spring training game at the tender age of 3. So when Patrick had the idea to check out the new Marlin's stadium, we thought it fitting to catch a game against the Dodgers.
Caleb developed a severe ear infection about a week before we were supposed to leave. Fortunately antibiotics worked, and the ENT didn't need to insert a drain. Yeesh. So we headed out as planned and were so glad we did.
We had a bit of rain on the drive down. And I was secretly hoping it was also raining in Miami so the roof would be closed for the game. Thankfully it was!
We decided to stay at the Sonesta in Coconut Grove for the weekend. We had a spectular view of Biscayne Bay from our room. That building is part of the hotel and to the right of it is Dinner Key Marina.
One of the first things Madeline does when we are staying at a hotel is find the stationery and the phone.
She is such a hoot.
Madeline, however, was less than thrilled to pose for me on the bed in all my indoors at ISO 200 glory.
It even says "Marlins Park Inaugural Season". How cool is that?
The kids managed to bring back to the hotel what little cotton candy they had left and enjoyed such a healthy bedtime snack.
