My brother's wedding was this past weekend. I can truly say it was a very good wedding--the best one I've been to so far! N and I were busy helping prep/set up for the event a few days before, and we also took care of the rehearsal dinner (which was 90% taken care of by Costco). All went well, and I don't think I've seen my brother happier.
I'm sure many photos from the wedding will appear on facebook, so I won't cover that here. N and I did grab brunch with my sister and brother-in-law in downtown Carmel on Sunday before we drove back down to LA, though. We had a nice meal at one of the tons of dog-friendly restaurants there (which we needed since we had Stewie with us and my sister and bro-in-law had their puppy Yooni with them!). The restaurant brought out a water bowl and a plate of biscuits for the two pups, which was cute.
Afterwards we walked down to the Carmel beach, which is supposed to be one of the best dog-friendly beaches in the country. It's also stunning--100% white sand, people surfing on the water, dogs splashing around leash-free. It was the first time we ever brought Stewie to a beach, and I'm pretty sure it's the first time in his life he ever got to be on a beach off leash. He went crazy! He was sooooo happy. He blitzed all around the sand and accidentally kicked some onto the heads of some sleeping women on a blanket and woke them up. I profusely apologized but once they realized it was Stewie that did it they were very amused. He had a blast. I think it's the happiest N and I have ever seen him.
