San Diego Trip

A lot has happened in the last week and a half!  We went to San Diego with my parents, celebrated our 7th anniversary, have been hosting my parents and Dan's parents, celebrated Greyson's 2nd birthday (wow!), and have just been having an all-around good time.  This post is about our trip to San Diego, and I will post more soon.

Last Wednesday (the 6th) we headed out to San Diego in the evening to spend some time as a family.  We met my parents there and then all headed to the zoo on Thursday.  That was awesome.  Neither of us had ever been there, so we had a blast.  Greyson loved seeing all the animals too, especially the elephants, which were definitely his favorite.  I was able to borrow an awesome zoom lens (thanks, Uncle Gary!) and so got some awesome shots of the animals.  So, be prepared for an overload of cool animal shots, haha.  On Friday, my parents headed to Gilbert with Greyson and we stayed another night without them.  That was even MORE awesome!!  Our anniversary was Sunday the 10th, so we decided we needed a little R&R before we add another member to our family in a few months.  So Friday we went to an antique mall by the beach, ate at a seafood bar, drove around and up to La Jolla, relaxed on the beach and played in the waves in La Jolla, watched the sunset, and had an awesome dinner overlooking the water.  Then on Saturday we hung out at Seaport Village for a bit before heading back to reality.  The weather was perfect and we just had a great time.  Here are some a lot of pictures from our little mini-vacation!

Greyson was playing with his food and started smashing yogurt chips on his nose :)
notice a resemblance???

After the zoo we headed to the beach on Coronado Island to give Greyson a little taste of the water.  He wasn't too thrilled about the icy waves, but did love throwing shells and rocks, and running after the seagulls.  :)

Couldn't leave Sawyer out of the photos!!

Our attempt at a family beach pic

We (surprisingly) didn't take any while at the beach on Friday, probably because we were covered in sand.  These are from Friday night watching the sunset in La Jolla.  So breathtaking.

And one last shot from Saturday in Seaport Village.

We had such a great time!!  Thanks so much, mom and dad, for taking care of The Boy while we had some time off, and for joining us at the zoo!  And, thank you, my sweet Dan, for being willing to take a day off work and drive lots of hours to spend these days with us.  These past 7 years have been full of so many ups and downs, but I can't imaging having gone through them with anyone else but you.  I love you and look forward to many more!

  1. Love these pics! Here are my favorites:
    Favorite animal pic is the giraffe. It makes me want one for a pet and style it's hair all day.

    Favorite Greyson pic is a tie between the food on the face and the sleeping pics.

    Favorite of you and Dan is totally the second to last pic that's closer up. You guys look so stinkin cute!
