Brandon’s mom came to visit for two whole weeks! And after a week, his dad came to join in the fun. But it was pretty special to have his mom all to myself. The nice part was we planned it perfectly because Brandon had a super busy week with work, and we knew he would be gone all day every day. The thought of taking care of a little baby all on my own for a whole week seemed like a bit much, so she offered to come a week early to help me and keep me company. It was perfect. Brandon was gone most days from 7am-7pm, and so me and Marva hung out and had a blast together!
Some days we didn’t do much, simply hung out at the house and played with Eliana. She was just beginning to smile on her own, and that was enough fun for the both of us! I was finally feeling adventurous and ready to leave the house and so we got out a few times just the three of us. We ventured out to this oh so cute local coffee shop a few times, went to the grocery store, to the beach, out to dinner, and of course the outdoor market The sad part was we woke up super early one day to get the freshest fruits and veggies, mom was all excited to see the local market. Well, I took her to a different one than I normally go to, since it was one we could drive the car to. Well, we show up at 6:30,and it wasn’t open! I couldn’t believe it! All the stores downtown don’t open till 8 or 8:30-yes even the coffee shops!-but the other outdoor market opens early so I just assumed this one would too. Thankfully, there were two booths open, so we got a few things. But what a bummer!
