was itching to get out of the house, so the 3 of us took a drive to Carmel. We walked around town with Ashton in the sling, because I figured the stores were too small to fit our gigantic stroller. Ashton loved the giant replica of a ferris wheel at the toy store and watched the train circle around the room. Afterwords we drove over to the Cannery and wandered around. We had to buy Ashton a new jacket because two major barfs rendered his sweatjacket unusable – hence a trip to a really tacky tourist shop where we managed to find a decent looking coat for cheap.
