Our little camper, still unnamed, has had a steady stream of guests since we got her last November. Our plan was to buy it, fix it up, and then use it for campouts. The fix-up is ongoing, but when she's not our family camping machine, she's our mother-in-law suite. More fun, and PRIVATE then a guest room if you ask me. She's definitely been useful since the baby came and brought all the visitors. Friends and family, we hope to see y'all!
We had my good sister/friend Jade and her fiancé Tom down for the weekend. ( Hint: They got engaged while they were here!) On their last night with us the boys decided to cool off from the hot day with a sunset surf session. I wish we did that every single night. That sky, that breeze, that air. It is so pure and invigorating. It was a beautiful night with some beautiful people. We even put Colette in the water for the first time. Sunset at Swami's is one of California's most pristine offerings. We are beyond luckily to call this magical place home. Nothing compares.
The weather last weekend in San Diego was absolute perfection. It was the most pleasant reminder of why we pay a little extra to live here. Seventy eight and sunny with a perfect breeze. San Diego Bay was sparkling, people out sailing, tourists biking. Seriously, California LOVE!
We decided to spend a family day driving South for some eating, shopping and splashing in San Diego's Waterfront Park.
Thanks to the California drought, most splash pads in the region are closed for the time being. This downtown park is one of the few free places to splash in the city, besides the mighty Pacific of course.
It's refreshing, overlooks the bay, and wears out a toddler like nothing else. Highly recommend!
I live for these little weekend field trips we take as a family. True enough, I take my kids on these same adventures during the week when we're alone, but it's way more fun for all of us when Daddy comes along. (Seriously-My poor arms!) we've definitely taken advantage of all the family membership deals here in San Diego, and as a Stay at Home Mom, I couldn't live without all these great options. A few snaps of one of our usual spots, the Safari Park. If you haven't been to the San Diego Safari Park, definitely add it to your list. Beautiful animals, and a great walk. There is so much to see and do there!
