Surprise Trip to San Diego

Last week Chris surprised me with a trip to San Diego. It was a wonderful surprise and much needed. After 6 years of marriage and only one vacation (our honeymoon), we were beyond ready for a trip for two. He had already asked my mom to watch the boys so all we had to do was drop them off and hit the road! Our wonderful friend Carrie (who is super creative and probably the most thoughtful person I know... you can read her blog here) has a great family that offered us their beautiful boat to stay on! Yes, that's right. We got to spend our vacation on a boat in the bay in Coronado! It is docked at a gorgeous resort where we had pool and spa access! We had a great time relaxing, sleeping in, eating, sight seeing, walking, going to the beach, spending time with friends, and visiting with Chris' sister.

Some highlights include: watching the dolphins at Pacific Beach, seeing the seals in La Jolla, playing shuffle-board with Kelsey and Paul, drinking wine (yep I had two glasses! I'm learning!!!) and eating sushi with the Byards, going on a 5 mile beach walk, going to the Farmers Market in Little Italy, watching Chris get soaked by huge waves, picking out Jackson's surprise (a new ugly doll, Poe), gay karaoke night in the gas lamp district, and just spending 3 days with Chris.

Thanks Babe for a great vacation!

When Jackson saw this picture he asked, "Is Daddy going to eat him? Does he talk?"
