We're Baaacckkk!

Well we have been home for a week now, and this is the first time I have been able to sit down and update!

We had the most AMAZING week in San Diego. The flight was good, we packed to much, the weather was perfect, the house was perfect, and family was great!! First thing we did when we got off the plane and got a rental (van..haha :)) was stop and In N Out for a burger!! Its safe to say I gained 3 lbs while on vacation, thanks to In N Out! :) Seriously!! We ate there 8 times in 7 days! I like it alot, but thanks to my brother in-law Ryan, we ate there once a day! I am pretty sure he could live on In N Out!

We spent our first day in Old Town San Diego. I love it there, so much culture, and hands down the best mexican food I have EVER had! And quite possibly the best little mexican band ever! I think they are called mariachi band.. but I am horrible at spelling, so you will have to sound that one out. :)

The next few days were spent at the beach. Our house was right on the water in Mission Bay. It couldn't have been any more perfect! Beautiful views, large windows, 3 balconies, the house was amazing! The house was more on the residential side, so we had lots of beach to play on!

Wednesday we went to Disneyland! I was so anxious! We finally got there after a 2 hour drive. IT WAS PERFECT. Madeline was so excited that she was stuttering. I had to fight the lump in my throat so I wouldn't cry a little. When we got in we went straight to see the princesses! Madeline was starstruck! I have never seen her act the way she did, or make the faces she made. Again I had to fight back a tear or two. :) The rest of the day was spent riding rides and seeing all that Disney had to offer. Josh took me to ride a few adult rides while the grandparents took the little ones for a while. First we rode Space Mountain. I screamed A LOT!!! So much that Josh, Tiffany(sister in law), and Ryan(brother in law) were laughing so hard they couldnt make a noise! And the 2 people we didnt know were laughing at me as well. When we got off I had mascara running down my cheeks from fear and laughing. Finally, after a l-o-n-g day it ended with a parade! Madeline was so excited to see all the princesses and all their friends. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day.

We spent one cloudy day playing put-put golf and hitting some balls in the batting cages. The rest of our time we spent on the beach. Josh has some friends that lived close by so it was nice to see them a few nights. We even went out one night we were there. We went downtown to Shout House. It was a piano bar, so much fun! The week went perfectly. I am blessed to have married into a such wonderful family.

Thank you Don,Yvonne, Tiffany, Ryan & Michele Ethan & Abby. We made wonderful memories!
