Parent Day Out

When you are a Martin and you are invited to an Avery wedding, in the words of Tim Gunn, you "make it work." We knew we had to be there and the only thing left to do was to figure out the logistics. We decided to try going without the Miss Junebug and it worked out perfectly by having her Grammy come stay with us for a week. Judy was able to hang out with us for a few days and then have some one-on-one time with June all day on Saturday. 

We were really only gone for about 24 hours. We left pretty early Saturday morning for the short flight to LA, but first we had to say goodbye to this one:
Boarding a plane from the tarmac always makes me feel like a celebrity. A celebrity who flies Southwest Airlines as a social experiment in finding out what coach class is really like.

In LA, we met up with my family who was already in town. To spend the afternoon we went to the Americana shopping center in Glendale and had a great time. 

 We ate on a lovely patio, walked around the shops, shared some cupcakes and some wine. And we walked around the little market, complete with chandelier.
Michael and I have been on dates. We've each spent nights away from home (and June) individually for business or pleasure, but this was the first extended time away for us together. With Judy sending us regular pictures and videos of what she was up to, we were really able to relax and enjoy 24 hours of adult carefreeness. It came and went too quickly, but it was so so enjoyable. Wedding post coming soon!
