Our Spring Break!!

This weekend was Spring Break and we spent it in San Diego, California!!!  We had a wonderful time except for the 30 minutes I posted about yesterday ;)  Thank you so much for all of your kind thoughts and comment from yesterday.  I started to respond to them individually and quickly found myself in tears.  So I read through them all, had a wonderful therapeutic cry and am now writting thank you  here.  You ll are the best!!    But now I am getting off topic again.  Let's get back to the fun!!!

We spent 2 days at the beach enjoying the sun, sand, and waves.

My kids are beach babies.  They could stay here forever ;)

The family that plays together, stays together ;)

On Friday we went to Lego Land!!   The kids had a blast!!!  Mini Land was my favorite.  So cool!!

Dad and the older three loved all of the roller coasters!!  

And Kami had fun on rides a little more her size ;)

And this one and I just strolled around the park.  She did amazing, and I think enjoys people watching as much as her mom does ;)

And we finished the day off with the Aquarium.  So cool!!! No surprise that these little fishes loved seeing all the fishes ;)

 While in San Diego we also visited the Mormon Battilion Visitor's Center and San Diego Temple.  My twin sister served her LDS mission here a few years back so it was exciting to go see where she was ;)

The kids especially loved getting to dress up like the Battalion ;)

 And the San Diego temple is just stunning.

All in all, an amazing family vacation.  Here is hoping we can go back some day :)

Pin It!


  1. How cool you went to Legoland, I took my kids home to Denmark 2yrs ago to the original legoland, it got SO big since I was a kid.... I want to go to the one in FL some time too.

  2. I love the beach. Looks like everyone had fun. So glad you found your little one safe and sound. How scary.

  3. That is a wonderful vacation for the whole family and wonderful places to visit.


  4. Sounds like a great vacation. I grew up 15 minutes from the ocean and now I can see it out my front windows. I am totally a beach girl, though I don't get to spend as much time there as I would like. There's nothing like the smell of salt water in the air.

  5. It looks like it was a fabulous trip. Aren't those Lego buildings incredible?

  6. Glad you liked our city! I am sorry for the scary situation at the beach. My husband used to be a beach lifeguard and he did lost children searches all the is so scary. But they always found them! I am glad you got some sunshine and some fun places to go!

  8. So glad your little one is safe (what a scare!) and that you have been able to go on and enjoy so many other wonderful vacation events. Love the San Diego Temple and the Mormon Battalion vVsitors Center. We did the same the same spots about a year ago.

  9. So very glad you were able to move ahead and have some fun. And so very glad all was well!! Just sos ya know, I once lost my son for 30 minutes, while he hid under a clothes rack and laughed about it. horrifying. it's been 22 years, and I can still feel it when I think about it :) xx!

  10. Glad you enjoyed it! I live down the street from Lego land. Did you see the flower fields too?? The temple is beautiful!

  11. We ordered up perfect weather for you and your family. I was born in San Diego 66 years ago and have lived here ever since. We have seen vast changes but the weather has been consistent. Will be hard to adjust when we relocate to Seattle at the end of the year. Glad you enjoyed your vacation and that it had a happy ending.

  12. So glad you had a great vacation! And I'm so glad to see you in at least one of the pictures!😉. I'm in Las Vegas again, visiting family. I'm going to be in St George for Sherri McConnell's class at quilted Works on sat. My hubby is with me this time, so I need to figure out something he can do while I'm in class: do you have any ideas? Thanks!! Hugs, Helen

  13. Great vacation for your family. Can't wait to see you in Panguitch at the Quilt Walk.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
