This is our third year heading to the beach in San Diego with our family and extended family. We always stay in the same “blue house” just steps from the beach and the rest of our family all stay in houses nearby. It’s something we look forward to every year and honestly, the boys can’t stop talking about the “blue house” all year long! We’ve stayed in the same house three years in a row and have it booked again for next summer! In the past we went to San Diego in August, but because of William starting school in early August, we decided to move our trip to fall during the 4th of July. It was so much fun being in San Diego for the Fourth of July! We were able to see so much extended family at the family’s 99th annual Fourth of July picnic, we had a fun 4th of July BBQ with our family that was staying at the beach and we watched fireworks over the Mission Bay, and all across San Diego to the San Diego Bay. It was magical and such a great day!
While we were at the beach we pretty much did the same thing everyday. Wake up, walk for coffee, get ready and head to the beach, stay there until 4 and then head in for showers, appetizers and dinner! We always go back to the beach for sunset. Such great memories! In the past we’ve taken one day to take the boys to the San Diego Zoo (so awesome) but this year we took one day off from the beach and took the boys to Legoland, which was a huge hit! They rode their first roller coasters and had the best time. We all can’t wait until next year!
