San Diego/Orange County Recap

There is no way I can sum up over 250 pictures into one blog post so I'll just give some highlights. We had such a fun time. P was awesome in the car both ways (she might have cried once for all of five minutes), Finn was a champ and all around we had a blast.

A good thing to note - in San Diego in the month of October all the museums and parks are free to children. That  includes the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld & Legoland. Pretty awesome!

We started the first part of our trip in San Diego with my sister in law. She lives across the street from a beach that is welcome to pets off leash. So we made sure to spend our first day there. P was a regular old chip off the block and it seems the ocean is definitely her thing. She got so down and dirty in that sand I had to throw out her swimsuit!

After a couple of days in San Diego, David went to hang out with friends in Seal Beach and I got to spend time with my sister (which we always adore!) in Orange County. We had too much fun even though it went by way too fast!

We were lucky to have avoided the major mudslides that caused the grapevine to be shutdown in both directions on our drive home. My goodness that would have been a nightmare! I also made sure to time our trip so we could hit up the Pottery Barn Outlet on the way home. It did not disappoint!

It was hard to go back to work on Monday after getting to spend so much time with P but she heavily rewarded me by taking her first (6!) steps on Monday evening. I was so happy I was home when she did it I teared up a little!
