San Diego

We took a quick Trip to San Diego last week. Angie had school off, Kyle was home sick, I was feeling sick, why not drive 13 hours to San Diego and stay for the week. That is what we did. I've heard you recover 10 times faster on the beach with the warm sun, that is just what I have heard! There were a few times Kyle and I looked at each other and said "What were we thinking." The drive was long at times, I hate driving! The sound of whining, screaming kids makes me want to end the trip all to soon. Actually they were really good, Avery cried or screamed for a few minutes then feel asleep. Once we got to San Diego it was worth all the driving!

The San Diego Temple is my new favorite. It is actually more impressive inside than out. If your in the area make some time to go, its amazing! We decided to take Kade and show him the temple, I think he liked it. When ever I ask him what we do in the temple he always says " Mommy's and Daddy's dance!" I don't know where he gets that, I didn't teach it to him. It must be the pretty dresses I where to attend the temple??

Avery never seems to care to look at the camera.

Me, Angie, and my mom. My mom is such a trooper she will go on any trip at the last minute and make the trip a blast. I think she likes us too:)!

Enjoying some beach time, you can always find time for the beach in San Diego!

Kyle, Kade, and Avery building a sand castle. Actually Avery just wrecked their castle every time. She is starting to do this dinosaur scream if she doesn't get what she wants. We don't know how to stop it, we don't want a spoiled princess who cries over everything. We need to change something, and change it fast!

Kade loved all the sand goodies we found at the house. Ashlee look, the purple sand castle is still alive, it was a great addition to toys. Thanks for spending all morning looking for the perfect one!
I thought this was so cute. Kyle tried to get Avery to smell the flowers. These flowers have no smell to them, very disappointing.

We found a great new Breakfast place to eat at, really Shari found it but we enjoyed it!

I wanted to get some family pictures on the beach, I had it all planned out perfect! There was this thick layer of fog covering the shore line. We tried to get a few cute pics, but failed due to the horrible fog! Maybe next time?

I look at this picture and think that's my boy, Kade's personality is that picture to a T.

We went down to the Lamp district to find a great place to eat.

Kyle taking some pictures of us eating at Pink Berry. It was the first time I had eaten Pink Berry, the place is way to overrated! It was good, but I wouldn't stand in line for an hour or even 10 min.

This chair was to cool at Pink Berry to not get a picture of it.

The lovely couple we went to chaperon, not really! Angie and her boyfriend, I know its weird to say it let alone hear it. They're a fun couple.

You really are beautiful in every single picture I ever see. And that shot of Kade is perfect. Is his tongue especially long?

How fun to just pick up and go on a whim! Looks like you guys had fun! And, you look fantastic! I kind of hate you right now! :) I'm sad about trick or treat street... We have been looking forever trying to find it, or at least something similar to go to... No such luck! It's too bad! We have had fun going the last few years. When are you headed out this way next?

Hey Hess! Thanks for the totally sweet comment you left on my blog. You are too nice. I always love seeing what you are up to and wearing you sassy mamma! I love those flower clips you have in your and your baby dolls hair!

the fog makes the pix that much better! i agree that the SD temple is amazing. i always thought they enhanced that blue sky in the pix until i saw it in person. oh, and don't worry about the dinosaur scream. it's not a diva thing. i think it's just that age. i know the sound you mean, though. it's like a velociraptor. it's so piercing and obnoxious. jack went through two phases of it. it was hideous

I hate to sound repetitious but I also hate to hold back a compliment. . . . so I'll just add to your admirers and say you are so GORGEOUS!! You are like one hot mamma in every one of these fun San Diego pics. Kyle is one stinkin' lucky hubby:) It looks like it was such fun, it makes me want to pick up and go somewhere now! Glad you had a break after being sick-I hate being sick when you still have to play mom, it's like a double whammy!

Thanks for all the nice complements everyone:)! I think I should re-read them when I'm feeling down and need a pick up!
