San Diego ~ Day 5

We had another relaxing day on the beach visiting with friends.
We were so happy to be enjoying our family, friends 

and amazing surroundings.

Rob and Trevor rented bikes, but I never got a picture of them cruising the boardwalk. Nolan rented inline skates and booked it down the boardwalk.

We had another wonderful day

and evening.

It was early to bed so we could be up and ready to spend a day at the happiest place on earth.

San Diego ~ Day 4

This day was all about hanging and relaxing in the unbelievable location we called home for a week.
We had many great friends and family come and spend the day with us. This is my sweet cousins baby that I had the pleasure of holding and she even feel asleep in my arms... so sweet. 
My dad, brother and sister {and her family} came to visit too. The boys had fun with their little cousins in the sand.

We played on the beach and in the water.
We enjoyed the company and our surroundings and I did not take many pictures. But trust me, it was a great day!

San Diego ~ Day 3

We woke up and headed to the beach.
We spent a few hours on the beach before checking into our beach house!

Trevor went surfing for the first time. He had a blast and wants to try it again. He did pretty good for a first timer.

Griffin spent his day on the boogie board. He was loving the warm ocean water. Nolan was also out enjoying the sun, sand and boogie boarding... and I guess hiding from the camera.

Trevor spent a lot of time out there surfing and he did not give up!

We were so happy to be at our final destination for a week of sun and fun. The house was perfect, particularly the outdoor space. We loved, super loved, the rooftop deck and jacuzzi.

We made quick work of getting settled in our rooms and then ordered some yummy Mexican food.

We spent our first beach evening hanging at the house taking in the views,

chillin' in the jacuzzi,

resting on the swing,

taking an evening dip and boogie board in the ocean,

and loving the first {and best} sunset!

Southern California ~ Day 2

We were up bright and early, like 4am bright and early.

We took our time to get ready
and then headed to California Adventure for magic hour and day of fun at the park.

Our first stop was one of your favorites at Hollywood Studio's ~ Toy Story Mania.  The lines were short so we did a quick 3 trips on this fun ride!

Trevor and I headed over to California Screaming. This roller coaster was highly anticipated by Trevor and me. It did not disappoint. It was Trevor's favorite ride. Again, since there was no lines, we took advantage and did two quick, loop turning, high dropping, upside down riding on this fun coaster!
We then headed to my very least favorite, the ferris wheel. I am not a fan of being up high and not moving! I do have to say it had a beautiful view of the city.
We went on a few more rides, grabbed a few fast pass tickets
and took a break for a quick snack.

After our snack, we took a trip through the Bug's Life section of California Adventure.

Griffin really liked this area
and his favorite ride here was the caterpiller ride.
Our final stop was the Car's area.
This area was amazing. I felt like we were dropped right into Radiator Springs.
We got to meet Lightening McQueen.

We rode the tractors and Luigi's tires.
The best ride of the day had to be the Car's ride. It was amazing. It took you through the movie starting with a slow cruise through Radiator Springs. We almost ran into the Mac Truck and we got a new tires from Luigi before heading out to race another car. It was so much fun that we had to ride it twice.
On our way out of the park, we had to stop for a quick visit with one of our favorites, Buzz Lightyear.

After our fun filled day, we headed to San Diego to start the rest of our vacation. We checked into our hotel in Downtown San Diego and waited to reunite with the rest of our family that was flying in that day.

It was another early to bed night. We were all so excited to be checking into our beach house the next day.
