My mom wanted to squeeze-in “one last” family vacation before my little bro, Sean, leaves on his mission.
So, off we went to San Diego, with the whole family & a few close friends!
Day #1 – We checked out the Sea Lions then headed to soak-up-the-sun (clouds) at Del Mar beach.
Day #2 – We went to the Japanese Friendship Garden at Balboa (Sean is leaving for the Kobe, Japan mission) then we spent the day at the San Diego Zoo. We ended the day with the yummiest restaurant, Extraordinary Desserts!
Day #3 – Cam and I took the family to our favorite beach, Tide Pool Beach. This picturesque location was incredible. We had the entire beach to ourselves. After the beach we hit-up the Carlsbad outlets.
This is one of my favorite pictures.
Day #4 – Started off at Scripps Aquarium then back to Tide Pool Beach. The sun was finally out and we took advantage of every moment on our “private beach.” Of course we ate at the all-time-best place, Pat & Oscars! For those of you in Arizona, you might remember it as "Oscar's". I am still craving a breadstick.
Cam kept dunking Ella's feet into the aquariums.
After a quick "wardrobe" change, Ella wanted to walk the beach for hours.
Ella learned the "O-face"... thanks Cam.
