When we arrived in San Diego on Friday night/Saturday morning (sometime around midnight), we grabbed our rental car and went straight to the hotel to get some sleep. Midnight in California is 3 am in Massachusetts after all, and we were beyond tired.
I don’t remember what time we woke up on Saturday, but it was definitely an east coast wake-up, so we were up early. Chris and I had a feeling that something like that was going to happen, so we had already planned to keep our first day there low key. Since we were up so early and ready to go, we decided to head over and surprise Chris’s brother and nephew, at their house (my awesome sister in law was working that morning, so we had to wait a little longer to see her). Since they live all the way across the country, we don’t see them as much as we wish we did, so we were all excited to get over there that first morning and see them.
After my sister in law got home, we had some lunch (yay for my first time at Jack in the Box) and then the three boys got to spend some time at the playground. I was too busy catching up with my SIL to get any pictures of that…..do you believe that? Me not taking pictures? Words I never thought I’d say.
My nephew had a Tee Ball game that day, so we all went to watch him. Sadly,he wasn’t feeling well, so my SIL took him home to rest and the four of us grabbed Chris’s brother and went to yet another playground. After a while, we dropped Chris’s brother off at his place and headed back to our hotel. Once we got there, we ordered pizza for dinner (Papa John’s) and the boys went swimming.
We were a little surprised that it wasn’t as warm there as we thought it would be. It was only around 60 degrees that first day and it was like that for most of the week. The pool was freezing, so Chris and I didn’t want anything to do with it, but the boys are much, much braver and jumped right in.
The weather became a running joke between the four of us adults for most of the week. My SIL and BIL joked that Chris and I brought the Boston cold with us because supposedly it is always over 70 and sunny there, not that we saw anything close to that until the last two days of our week there….
It was all good, though. We had a blast and trust me, I have so much more to tell you!
