San Diego recap + Friday Faves

San Diego was the BEST. We loved 4 days in one in every of our very favourite locations and likewise loved some new adventures. We skilled LEGOLAND for the primary time, took the women paddle boarding and kayaking (twice as a result of they liked it a lot!) and we came upon P will not be a fan of Melting Pot lol.

We bought in on Friday afternoon and determined to spend the afternoon purchasing at UTC, after which loved dinner at Seasons 52. We haven’t been to at least one in years – I hold wishing Tucson will get one! – and it lived as much as the fond reminiscences. After all, the women liked the mini desserts.

We known as it an earlier evening, and the following day, we wakened and it was raining. It hardly ever rains in San Diego, regardless of June Gloom and Could Gray, and after being within the scorching Tucson warmth, it was fairly beautiful.

I caught a Lagree class

whereas the crew grabbed Higher Buzz for all of us,

after which we headed out to paddleboard and kayak because the solar was popping out. P sat on the entrance of my board, and Liv used her personal kayak! We had been out on the ocean for an hour, and noticed jellyfish, leaping fish, and two sting rays. It was wild!

After paddleboarding, we went to Pacific Seaside for the remainder of the afternoon to swim and play within the waves. It’s humorous as a result of whereas we lived in San Diego, we averted the seashores throughout vacation weekends as a result of they had been so busy. Now, we don’t care in any respect. We’re simply comfortable to be there. 😉

Lunch was acai bowls in watermelons, salads, and low,

and dinner was at Melting Pot. We wandered round Gaslamp and since we didn’t have dinner reservations, Melting Pot appeared like it will be a enjoyable novelty possibility. Liv ended up loving it, and P was NOT into it. She was like, “Why on earth do I’ve to prepare dinner my very own meals… it is a restaurant?”

This specific meal wasn’t my fave, both. The entire expertise lasted manner too lengthy (and the children had been drained on the finish of the day) and the meals wasn’t pretty much as good because it has been prior to now. We used to adore it again within the day, however now, we’re not into poaching meat in a lukewarm pot lol. I might return only for the dessert course, however the whole lot else was meh.

Sunday, we grabbed breakfast on the highway:

(the chocolate acai bowl from Nekter is LIFE)

after which spent the day at LEGOLAND.

P loves all issues legos, so we needed to take her earlier than she was too outdated, as a result of it’s undoubtedly geared in direction of youthful children. All of us ended up having a blast. The rides had been tremendous cute and enjoyable, the meals was surprisingly superior, and we had been all blown away by the unimaginable Lego sculptures and mini cities.

We did the entire main rides, loved lunch, and walked round exploring. Dinner was Pizza Port within the lodge room, which was 10/10 as at all times.

Monday morning, we had been out on the water once more.

(Shorts, sports bra, and tank are right here. Livi’s jumpsuit is here. Additionally, I get a kick out of the truth that P can put on lululemon now)

This time, P and the Pilot did a tandem kayak, Liv had her personal, and I used to be on the SUP. It was the right approach to cap off our journey earlier than grabbing Nice Maple to-go and hitting the highway. We noticed SO many canines out on paddle boards whereas we had been there, too. I have to take Maisey subsequent time!!

It was undoubtedly a visit for the books, although it was a brief one, we made probably the most of it. I hope you loved your Labor Day weekend, too!
