san deigo

for time sake... i will write little and let the pics speak for themselves:
when we first arrived in san deigo it was just before lunch time. we headed to Ocean Beach to eat at hodad's as recommended on the show diners, drive ins, and dives on Food Network! it was excellent and super fun!

this is the view from our balcony (if you look close you'll see our sea lion friends that barked frequently on one of the empty docks).
here are the private cabanas that you could hang out in and even roast smores in the evenings.
the first night we hit up a baseball game at Petco.
we spent a great deal of the next morning at the Wild Animal Park. Really cool experience to see most of the animals living all together as if they would in africa.
although it is fast food... rubios has the BEST steak tacos EVER!
we went to La Jolla and enjoyed the beach one evening. lance got in, but i knew i would be WAY too cold.
that evening we hit up "little italy," an italian community in san diego with lots of restaurants and shops. so cute!
this particular restaurant was filippi's pizza grotto. you had to stand in line in this skinny hallway of a grocery store to get a table.
the next morning we headed to point loma to see the lighthouses.
great view!!
one of our last stops was the uss midway, a retired navy aircraft carrier. it was HUGE!
we really enjoyed our time together and the quietness of the trip... thank you mom and dad for watching the kiddos. we've scoped out all the great spots for our return trip w/ kids!


  1. Looks like you took in alot on such a short amount of time. You both look amazing and it seems like you were having a great time. Loved the 2nd pic b/c it's like a "Where's Waldo" shot. I failed tho..........I just can NOT find the sealion. :) Thanks for sharing your trip.

  2. i love rubios! i think they make great fish tacos! i make my brother take me there every time i visit!
