San Diego Has My Heart

Okay so maybe all of California has my heart - I LOVE California. When we had the opportunity to take a trip with our neighbors - Michael and Christine - we jumped on it! We left on Thursday night and came back Sunday. It was a quick trip but we had a blast. Here is our trip itinerary in a nutshell:


San Diego Zoo
Coronado Island
Gaslamp District
Point Loma Lighthouse
In-N-Out Burger
La Jolla
Birch Aquarium
Trip to the Movies

The last 2 items on the list were unexpected due to the heavy downpour that occurred all day on Saturday - in San Diego - where it rains like 3 times a year or something like that. Maybe that's an exaggeration but still - they rarely get rain and they got a torrential downpour when we're there! But now worries - we made the best of it and still had fun! If you would like a more detailed explanation of our trip - take a visit to Christine's Blog. She did a great job of recapping our trip - with lots of facts I will never remember! Here are some of my pictures :)
