Fall Break {part 1}

Ryan and I try to do a mini vacation (or long weekend) every quarter.  It gives us something to look forward to and motivation to work hard knowing we have something fun on the horizon.  Our school district has a one week fall break, so over the summer we decided we'd plan a trip to San Diego for a few days.  However, after mentioning our idea to my parents, we decided to turn it into a week long family vacation!

Mom flew to Phoenix, we packed up the mini van and the two of us drove the kids to California.  We had three days on our own before the remaining crew joined us, and stayed in a great house in La Jolla within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and the coast.  Most of our time was spent exploring the neighborhood, experiencing an amazing farmers market, scoping out all the restaurants, and enjoying the beautiful coast line.  A favorite spot, which we revisited multiple times, was the harbor seals at the Children's Beach…Lily loved how close she was to the wildlife.  

{Those are not sharks in the water, but surfers.  We loved watching all the surfers in La Jolla!}
