We're Baaaack!!

Ahhh....a nice long weekend in California! We took off Thursday morning and landed in LA around 10am...off to the hotel to unpack and then we played tourist. We were in Redondo Beach for the wedding of one of my best friends from high school - Leah. Yes, we have the same name and yes, we grew up living next door to each other and yes, in a graduating class of 37 students there was a total of 3 Leahs. Anyhow, the wedding was Friday night on the beach - BEAUTIFUL. As we were waiting for the bride to come down the stairs, two dolphins were leaping through the ocean. Not sure you can top that! The night was a blast - the bride looked radiant and the band kept us dancing.

Saturday afternoon we hopped in rental car and headed south to San Diego - well La Jolla to be exact. Mike could not believe the traffic on a Saturday in CA. It took us almost 3 hours to drive 113 miles on the freeway!

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.

We've already planning our trip to return with the boys sometime in the next 5 years! Highly recommend to any of you!

Here's a few pictures from our trip......
