Mona and her family finally made it to San Diego after being stranded in Yuma for a week. They weren’t staying for long though, so we needed to meet up with them as soon as we could, before they left the area. We figured just playing outside would entertain the children so we met by their campground in Mission Bay. After a couple of hours of running around and playing ‘capture the flag’ and the chance for Caitlin to walk one of their three dogs, we decided to go out for dinner with them. We ate at a great location: Souplantation – we’d never heard of this chain but it was perfect for us, it catered to everyone’s culinary choices AND it was buffet-style – can any kind of place be better for Jake? Needless to say, I’m quite sure too many desserts were consumed, particularly as the four older children were on their own table!
I’m not sure if we’ll manage to meet up with the family again, hope so, but they’re heading north a lot faster than we’ll be getting there.
