Brett spent time with Grandpa Mike and Grandma Sue up in SB and then with Grandpa Dave & Grandma Claudia at the lake. While we were gone, he managed to learn how to walk (while holding your hands) and popped out 3 more top teeth - he know has 2 on the bottom and just about 4 through on the top.
Thank you to all the Grandparents for helping us out during our CA vacation!!
However, once we got to La Jolla, all frustrations were over. The city is spectacular!!! We just could not get enough of it - the beaches, the seals, the dolphins, the food - absolutely gorgeous! We spent Saturday afternoon/evening scoping out all the things we were going to do on Sunday. We were up and at it by 7:30 Sunday morning! First was renting snorkel gear and wet suits. Never did the thought cross my mind that in CA in June it wouldn't reach higher than 67 degrees the WHOLE TIME WE WERE THERE! Over the course of 5 days, I think we saw the sun for a total of 6 hours. We were bound and determined to not let the weather get the best of us. We snorkeled, hopped on some boogie boards, and climbed around on rocks all day Sunday. Sunday evening we went to the Gaslamp District downtown San Diego, visited Petco Park (Mike was thrilled), went over the Coronado Bridge (wow!) and checked out the beaches there.
Here's a few pictures from our trip......
