Friday, July 8: El Ensayo Cena

Friday the 8th was day before wedding day, which traditionally means rehearsal and rehearsal dinner day! But, being the low-key, relaxed couple Eric and Caroline are, they did not plan a rehearsal. Hey, if you don't have a plan, then the plan cannot go wrong. :-)

We did go by their apartment that morning to talk through the service and iron out a few details (for my Type A brain's sake). Brooklyn dressed up Caroline and took pictures with my phone (and because I love my new sister I will not be sharing those), while Jake admired Furbaby, the kitty, from afar and watched Yo Gabba Gabba on Netflix.

After a few hours at the Hollywood Hotel pool that afternoon, we all showered and dressed up for the "rehearsal" dinner at Malo Cantina.

Malo was unlike any Mexican restaurant we have ever been to. It was pure authentic Mexican cuisine. Their specialty- and one of Eric and Caroline's favorites- is the Pickle and Beef Taco. Even Chad, the non-pickle eater, said it was awesome. Unfortunately, due to some personal issues that day and evening I was unable to partake in the dinner, but everything looked and smelled sooooo good. Everyone was raving over the food and all had a great time! Thanks, Mom & Dad, for hosting a fun night!
