This weekend we took Max for his first trip to San Diego! We had so much fun! The drive there Max pretty much slept the entire way. Of course he was up most that night. :)
Friday: When we got into town we went to my cousin Cassi's place to visit with her, Pete, and Ella. This was our first time meeting Ella, so we were so excited to see the new addition to their family! Ella is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e!! I love newborn babies! Holding her put me right back to the moment Max was born. Ella was wide awake looking around. Too cute! We had a bbq that night, and hung out with Pete's family as well. It was a fun night!
Saturday: more like Funday! We were busy from the moment we woke up until we went to bed! We got up early and went to La Jolla Beach. It was overcast, but it wasn't too cold. Max met the ocean for the first time! Ian put his little feet in the sand and the water (which was freezing) came to his feet and he let out a whine! After a couple times of the water coming to his feet, he was okay with it. It was an awesome moment to have with Max.
After the beach we walked around and ended up having lunch at The Cheese Shop. Yum-O! I ended up having a veggie sandwich with cheddar cheese. I swear they put a whole block of cheese! It was delicious though!
We went back to the hotel to drop off our leftover food, and went right back out to Balboa Park. Balboa Park is the best place ever! Ian had downloaded an app for his iPhone and it had mentioned this treasure hunt that you can do throughout the park. We decided to give it a try. We were all over the park for two hours following the clues. So fun!! It was almost Amazing Race like, but we weren't crazy people running around! :)
Old Town San Diego was next on our agenda. That was the coolest little area. It had a western town set up, and we walked around. Max saw horses, but was not interested at all. By the end of our walking my feet were killing me! I of course wore flip flops. I ALWAYS do this. We'll go some place where we do a lot of walking and I never have the right shoes on. Oh well! We got off our feet when we had dinner at Casa Guadalajara. The BEST Mexican food I've ever had. So so good! When we were completely stuffed, we headed back to the hotel for the night. Max was worn out, and slept the entire night!
Sunday: Our day started off with breakfast at the Omelette Factory. Max had his first bites of waffle and blueberry muffin. He couldn't get enough of the muffin! We took Max to Mission Beach. It was flipping windy that day though, so it wasn't too much fun. The area was really cool though. They had gift shops set up and a rollercoaster. We managed to get a little shopping done. Ha!
We hung out at the hotel for most of the afternoon, and then went to dinner with the Valenzuela Family. We went to this pizza place. The pizza was pretty good, and Max had a few bites of the crust. Our boy likes bread. We went back to Cassi's place to hang out, and had so much fun. We laughed so much that night. I think future trips to San Diego to see them are in our future!
Monday: Today...boo we had to leave.
