San Diego Vacation

Last weekend we had the amazing opportunity to go on vacation in San Diego with amazing friends. They are actually friends Terrill knew in high school.  The whole trip was a blast.  We stayed in rooms right next to each other and did everything together.  The couple we met down there have a boy about the same age as Mason so we were even able to get naps in each day.  It was awesome!! On the drive down we had some time to stop in Irvine and Newport Beach to meet up with one of Terrill's best friends and we also got to see where he used to live. The first day we had we went to Sea world.  My favorite part of that was the Shamu show.  After Sea world we headed down to seaport village and walked around and then had an amazing meal.  I realized that I have a love for smoked salmon as I got it at practically every place we went too! The fish down there was just so good!  

The second day we headed to the zoo.  The animals and exhibits were really impressive and I would almost recommend this over Sea world.  There was just so much to see that we didn't even see all of it!  That night we got the famous Phil's BBQ which was delicious and then Mike and Phi came over to our room and we talked and hung out.  

The third day was Sunday, so we didn't plan anything too big.  Terrill, Mason and I went to church in the morning and then we met up with our friends.  We went to the Mormon battalion site in old San Diego and enjoyed real authentic mexican food with homemade tortillas. Yum!  After the boys naps, we decided to walk in La Jolla and see the beach.  It was really beautiful.  Then we got dinner at a fish market and had a picnic at the temple.  Another incredible day!

The fourth and final day started out with meeting my aunt and uncle for breakfast.  We went to Hash Brown a Go Go.  It was soooo good.  Then we met up with Mike and Phi around 10 in Coronado. We rented beach cruisers and rode around the whole island.  The guys hauled the little guys in a trailer and said that it wasn't hard at all.  Then we walked around some shops and had lunch and chocolates.  After nap time, we headed to little Italy where we enjoyed dessert and dinner (dessert first of course) and then more dessert at yogurt land.  Again, another incredible day!  I just had so much fun with Mike, Phi and Parker.  What a perfect vacation and what wonderful friends they are!!
