San Diego Recap.

We had a great time in SUNNY and WARM San Diego. The only thing that confused me was that there was this giant glowing orb in the sky that emitted heat and light. It was nice. I think I may have even gotten a little sun.

Highlights of the trip:

We drove through downtown L.A. with the fifth wheel and lived to tell the story. Sure, we didn't get off of the freeway, but we could see Dodger Stadium.

Sea World was great! Little Monster had a great time watching the whales do their thing. He loved going into the tunnel where the sharks swim over head. Unfortunately, he fell asleep just as we got to the 'kid' area with the splash zone and fun playground. We waited forever for him to wake up, decided it was going to be one of those several hour nap days, so we headed home. He immediately woke up. It was tragic. We drove over the Coronado bridge countless times and visited the beach on North Island. We visited the Wild Animal Park, and while it was very enjoyable for Not the Momma and I, it was too much for Little Monster, so we skipped our plans for the zoo the next day. Instead we went back to Coronado and caught the ferry over to downtown and walked around downtown for a while.

I think I could see myself living in San Diego. The only problem is finding housing we can afford there. That, my friends, is not such an easy task.

We're thoroughly exhausted now, and I regret being such a jerk about the whole trip. I should have been more excited. Little Monster is happily napping in his own bed. (He let out a big cheer of HOME! HOME! when we pulled up to the house.) I'm thinking about doing the same thing. But there's all this laundry staring at me. I have stuff to put away. But napping... that sounds like a much better idea for now!

I'm glad you had fun in San Diego! It is a great place to visit, and live, if you can overlook the price of housing, the cost of gas, and the periodic earthquakes and wildfires.

The shark tunnel is awesome. I like the Wild Animal Park better than the zoo, but the zoo is less tiring this time of year because it is closer to the coast.

I enjoyed Coronado Island and North Beach while we were in San Diego in August! It's beautiful! Lyv loved, LOVED SeaWorld! We never made it to the zoo or to the WAP, wish we had though.

So...are you moving to SD?

I miss you. Do you mind if I call you sometime this coming week?

I'm glad y'all had a good trip. Sounds like tons of fun! I can't wait for Brooklyn to be old enough to enjoy stuff like Sea World :)

I love napping. When I get to. Silly, boss doesn't like me to sleep instead of work. Hmm.
