    Memorial Day Weekend in San Diego

    Happy Thursday! Today I’m recapping our trip to San Diego, California. Of all the places I’ve visited, both in the United States and internationally, San Diego is one of my favorites. It’s the perfect combination of city and beach life and 70 degree weather year round is my dream!

    Memorial Day Weekend 2016

    If only all weekends could be this great. And to think of it…minus the extra day, why don’t we make all weekends feel like a holiday weekend? Our weekend started off on Friday night with Ben’s baseball game in which it started pouring five minutes into the game. Saturday was the usual grocery shopping and cleaning and I picked up this flag from Target and put it on our mailbox and I’m loving it. Saturday afternoon I grabbed a margarita with my friend Alissa on a patio and then the night got crazy when I fell asleep at 8:30. We spent the entire day Sunday with J’s mom, brother and…

    Memorial Weekend & Moving Day

    Our Memorial Weekend looked a little different than years past. We moved the final boxes and fixed up the last few things in our old house until the early morning hours on both Saturday and Sunday.

    Memorial Day Weekend 2012

    Our Memorial Day weekend was jam packed but it was nice to spend time together with family.   2 years ago we took Ben to the airshow and went in the middle of the day. It was miserable and hot so this year we went right when they opened at 9:30am. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and the breeze was wonderful! Cousins After nap, we made our first trip of the year to the splash pad. Daddy also filled up this pool at our home. Although it was freezing, Ben insisted he get in. On Monday, we went to the parade in our downtown. Ben was so good and…

    Memorial Day Weekend 2011

    This Memorial Day weekend turned out to be a lot different than last years. You can read about last year’s fun here & here. The weekend got started off with a trip to the ER on Friday night. Without going into too much detail Ben had a lot of swelling in his umm, boy region. Poor thing kept saying my pee-pee hurts, my pee-pee hurts. 5 hours later we were sent home with lots of meds and no real reason for the swelling.  Saturday morning we woke up to find Ben’s hands, feet, and face were all swollen too. Poor little guy could barely see out of his eyes. At this point the…
