San Diego Part 1

So.  I took a lot of pictures while we were in San Diego. 
Nearly 700, actually. 
Mmmhmmm.  That's a lot of pictures to be sortin' through, let me just tell ya.

So far I've just chosen a few {40+} of my favorites, with hopes that somehow I'll acquire an extra 4 or 5 hours in my day {someday} that I can devote to photo sorting. 

Here we go:  San Diego, Part 1

Our first couple of days were spent walking around our hotel.  The hotel we were staying in was literally right behind Seaport Village ~ an adorable village of shops and restaurants right on the bay.  Truth be told, the girls could've spent the entire trip there.  All of them love to shop and walk around.  At the end of our day, we'd meet up with hubs and Mom/Grandma for dinner.  Did I mention that Jeremy's brother's girlfriend came along?  How fun was that!  The girls LOVED hanging with her all day.



On Sunday night we took a carriage ride around the city.  The girls definitely felt like princesses.


And Monday, we were ready for more shopping.
But a girl's gotta eat.  So we took a break to find a snack.


Not long after sitting down, we had a little visitor.


A couple, in fact.


Blue Icee!  My favorite!

Stephanie had to play tough guy, and have a little chit chat with Mr. Duck to let him know that stealing our snacks was completely unacceptable behavior.


He didn't take it too well, and instead of leaving, he called in reinforcements.


We had to do the same.


Kam gave him what for, while this little guy watched the show:


Luckily we all parted peacefully.

Stay tuned for Part 2 . . . The Beach!

That carriage is so cute! I would feel like a princess riding in it too:) I can't wait to see beach pics!

That duck with the green head (Mallord?) looks like it is carved of wood- wow!

I took 200 pictures on a 2 hour fieldtrip to a firehouse. So, I'm thinking 700 on vacation is conservative. :) But yes, the sorting and editing is such a chore!

I have never been to CA and so I am really looking forward to your posts!

What a fun time! How cool that Grandma and your brother's girlfriend came along. It's always nice to have some extra adults to help with the kids!

I can't wait to see beach pics!

That is so funny about the ducks! The little beggars!!! You got great pictures of them, though!

I can't wait to see the rest of your trip! It sounds perfect so far!

Love all the pictures and commentary! Haha.

Looks like so much fun. And it makes me really eager for outside weather to get here so we can enjoy some good outdoor family time!

YAY for your trip. It looks like so much fun so far. The carriage ride is just too sweet...I'm sure the girls had a blast. You got a lot of really nice shots and I can't wait to see more :)

Beautiful pictures as always. Those pesky duckds trying to get your warm pretzels, I am sure your girls gave them a few nibbles.
