This past weekend we drove 5 hours up the coast to Monterey for Mother’s Day weekend.

We’re pretty lucky to have a child who oddly loves to take car rides, but we do keep a handful of healthy snacks in the car (fruit leather, berries, grapes, sliced cheese, granola bars) as well as a mini-magnetic drawing board. 

We opted to leave LA on Friday night, getting into the Hyatt Regency Monterey in time for a movie, some Gilroy garlic fries, and a good night’s sleep. That way we could get a full day of activities in on Saturday.
