We have been planning our trip to California for about 2 months. The girls had no clue we were going on a summer vacation until we woke them up at 4:30 am Wednesday morning. The girls were not happy that we woke them up but once we broke the news to them we were boarding a plane and going to California they were excited. I have never been to CA so I was so excited to see all the sights too!!!
We finally arrived at our first stop on this family vacation – beautiful SAN DIEGO!!!
After we dropped off our luggage at our hotel we headed to Coronado Beach. We all walked up to the water and decided it was way too cold. The water temps for San Diego average around 71 and I have no desire to get into that water with a swimsuit on.
So we sat down and played in the sand.
We built some sandcastles and wrote our names in the sand.
The girls had a lot of fun hanging out at the beach.
Abigail had so much fun she needed a little nap on our way back to the hotel.
We hung out in the hotel for a couple of hours and then decided to go to the USS Midway (which was right beside our hotel!!!)
This plane is similar to the plane in Top Gun so Abigail is giving me her best Top Gun face. (she makes me smile)
Since we are not your typical “go and sit while on vacation” people we loaded back into the car and headed up the coast to La Jolla for dinner. We of course had to stop at the famous La Jolla Cove and see all of the seals and sea lions.
We were shocked how close we could get to them!!!
We enjoyed a wonderful seafood dinner at World Famous and got to enjoy this beautiful view.
Wow that was a full first day in San Diego!! We had a blast seeing all the sights but we were all in bed by 9:30pm!! We all needed some rest because up next was a trip to the famous San Diego Zoo.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!!
