Last Year

 One year ago today we were headed to San Diego for a little vacay.

It is amazing to me all that can change in one year's time.
 Looking back through these photographs, it certainly seems like a lifetime ago, rather than a mere 365 {ahem, 366} days.

I feel like taking a little walk down memory lane . . . join me?

Miss Kam was SO excited to board a plane. 
So excited.
She still talks about it.
She talks about our hotel too {it was pretty luxurious}.
She is such a joy to take places, because she delights so much in it.

Here she is, looking for our flight ;)

Our hotel opened up to a beautiful outdoor village of boutiques.
It was pretty much heaven to a bunch of girly girls.

When we tired of shopping
{honestly, we didn't tire of it, but we thought we should see the beach too}
We made a trip to Coronado.

It was a gorgeous, sunny day.

Some of us enjoyed the sand more than others . . .

Some of us wondered what it might be like to sample the sand . . .

And later in the week, Sea World.
So much fun for the girls.

Oops, snuck another shopping pic in here, and I'm too lazy to move it. . .

Back to Sea World . . .
What fun!
This is one of my all time favorite shots of Jeremy and Sierra.
So happy and carefree.
Love this.

There were so many animals to see.
Goodness, they were gorgeous.

And happy :)
Doesn't it look like this guy is smiling at us?

My but they make a lot of noise!

And the sea turtles.
Oh how I love them.

 Our trip seemed to fly right by . . .

{Look at how little my girls are.  Crazy how much they grow in a year!}

Before we knew it, it was time to head home. 

And we were all sad to say goodbye :(
 Our trip to San Diego was one of the most treasured gifts we have ever received.
I always say that we would much rather have experiences, make memories,
than accumulate more things.

And we made so many precious memories on that trip.

I love San Diego and I remember how excited you were to go. How fun to go back and remember such a joyful time.

I can't believe that was already a year ago! That looks like it was such a fun trip! I love vacations!

I agree with your thoughts on experiences rather than things. After seeing La Reve last month in Las Vegas I am dying to take the kids. I know they would love it more than any toy on earth.

I remember this trip and it really was a great one for y'all! The girls have all grown soooo much in a year.

Yes, I agree Liz, I would much rather save my money for a family vacation than to buy someTHING. My kids always talk about the places we've been, but toys get shoved behind the couch and forgotten :)

That picture of them on the ride is amazing! What a capture! And looks like it was a great vacation. My kids have never been to Sea World- though we don't live that far from it; but isn't that the way it often is, you don't see the things right by you.

It looks like an amazing trip! Makes me want to pack up the boys and head back to CA:)
