Quick Weekend Getaway

Friday, November 11, 2011

We took a quick trip to Southern California this past weekend for a wedding in San Diego. Since we were so close, we decided to surprise the boys with a trip to LEGOLAND. I wasn't all that impressed with the place (aside from Mini Land) but the boys were in heaven and their reactions to everything were priceless.

After that, we headed to San Pedro. My parents lived in San Pedro for several years before they moved to Arizona (we lived there for a short time too) and I absolutely adore it. Nothing like watching the sun rise over the Port of Los Angeles to start your morning.

Our hotel room looked out directly over the port. I thought the boys would have loved it but they were too busy checking out their Lego loot.

Finley had me take a zillion pictures of his Legos but I'll spare you with just these.

I did manage to break them away from the toys for some adventuring around the marina.

Between the wedding, LEGOLAND, and some business in the South Bay, it was a whirlwind of a trip but it was nice to go back "home" and get my ocean fix for a while.

Can't wait to tell you all about it. Looking forward to seeing you next weekend! PS - there is a HUGE game for us on Saturday. If you're lucky, you just might see me running some laps around the Cornish Pasty Co. ;)

Dana, this trip was so quick that we didn't tell a soul we were in town. Next time, for sure!! It's only been what, 18 or so years? xo
