San Diego April 2013

I had six days off work so I thought it would be a perfect time to visit my favorite people in San Diego....Michele and Samantha!  Since our flying days are over we got ready for a road trip! 
 I made Shelby and Keaton road trip binders
 The first page showed a map to La Verkin because that is where we were stopping for the night.  The next page showed a map to San Diego.
 I made road trip games like Bingo, Tic Tac Toe and word searches.
 I also printed off a bunch of coloring pages and dot to dots.  It kept them nicely entertained. 
 Pulling into La Verkin

I love the backyard of the La Verkin house.  It has tons of old barns, coops and buildings.
We left early the next morning and ate breakfast in Mesquite.  It was gross. 
We stopped at this old park in Baker.  I love old parks and the kids had fun stretching their legs. 

 Keaton got this weird rash...probably from playing at that old park. Haha!
 We made it!!  First stop Torrey Pines beach!
 This guy was doing extreme yoga.  It was hilarious!

 Cute Samantha and Chloe

 Michele's brother in law and his wife own a vineyard.  They were having a ribbon cutting ceremony so we went.  It was gorgeous!  Samantha stayed home and watched Shelby and Keaton.  She is an amazing babysitter!

 They had a beautiful home.
 Before we came Samantha cleaned and painted her old play house.  The kids spent hours outside playing in it.
 I love palm trees!
 Old Town
 We went to their club and played tennis and lounged in the pool.  It was good for my soul.

 Samantha has a broken wrist and still beat me at tennis!  She is a star.

 I took this from my phone after we had been driving for an hour.  We left at 5am.  I already was missing Michele and Samantha.
 I brought a bunch of magnets and let Chloe play with them on a cookie sheet.  Thanks Pinterest.
 We stopped at the best park in Vegas.  It's called Town Square Las Vegas if you ever are there.  We have been here before for Shelby's 7th birthday.  We stayed for a couple hours and ran around and ate lunch.

We were going to stop in La Verkin for the night but the kids were doing so good that we just kept going all the way home.  Chloe did amazing as did Shelby and Keaton.  We pulled into our house at 9:44.
