Shortly in San Diego 

I had always wanted to take a vacation to San Diego, but had only driven through several times never staying to enjoy the area. Last Spring, my family and I drove to the coast. When we entered San Diego, as soon as we rolled down our windows, the moisture and fragrance overtook our senses. The fresh air was wonderful. After living in Arizona for over a year, we missed the smells of flowers, trees, and the ocean.

A couple places we visited were Sea World and Coronado Beach.

I found an awesome deal for a hotel room overlooking the boats and water:

The weather looked more similar to the Pacific coast of Washington state than California; however, Coronado Beach stayed warm even though it was a bit windy.Hotel del Coronado. They made the best smoothie I had ever had.

My five year anniversary at the time so I made a heart in the sparkling gold sand.My silly girl:

Camping at the local KOA. A great place for families to set their kids loose. They have a jumping pillow, pool, playground, a train on the weekends that drive around the grounds, activities, and more.img_3586
