San Diego

...which of course in German means... :) oh never mind.

So I took C and AM to San Diego to visit some of our lifelong friends that moved out their 3 or so years ago.  We truly had a wonderful time.  I was so impressed with the weather and their home and neighborhood.  Everything was amazing...I can't wait to go back.

Here we are looking over the wildlife at La Jolla and then we went down to the tide pools.

They have these magnificent tree where the girls pretended they were monkeys(complete with sounds) and then all the kids played hide and seek:)

We went out for wine and bread and cheese...adults only.  I bought him that sweet shirt!  I would be amis if I didn't mention he loves Bread and Cie.  I should have made a slide show so I could include all the pictures!

Here we are workin the glasses I bought.  Very Californian right?

Have you heard of Corvette Diner...Incredible Pizza....maybe a place where your kids are over stimulated and it cost you LOTS of money?  That was this place.  We had a great time:)

We stay with our friends 2 night and then at a SWEET Ramada for 2 nights.  Evidently the Club level is a must so I made it happen with a little help from an adorable 8 year old.  Look at the bedtime reading they have for newborns.

Not to mention the hours of fun had by these kiddos.  All this after we swam in the ginormous pool and spent time in the awesome hot tub at the hotel.

We spend Sunday at Mission Beach.  We stayed mainly on the boardwalk, but I really wanted the kids to be able to say they felt the Pacific Ocean.  AM put her feet in, but not C so much.

I tried to bribe the kids with cotton candy...I think it worked:)  They love me.

Group picture out side the boardwalk area.

This is out last night together in Old Town.  Evidently this is the first town established in CA...who knew?

This is the view from the CLUB LEVEL where we spent breakfast our last day.  Even the kids were impressed!

All in all...we had a great time and I feel like it is an important investment for the kids to travel.  I feel like they learned a lot about themselves and about interacting with others.  I really liked that they got to see a different culture than where we live:)

So fun to see all the pictures. Also, so great to see what everyone has made of their lives. I am proud of all of you. I remember when I first heard that Andy and Kacey were "together"! Sorry, it is an age thing.. What!?, I believe was my reaction!
Love to all...Gramma Worthy
