Today I celebrated my birthday with family a few days early. The day was absolutely beautiful! Seriously, it was gorgeous in San Diego… one of those “I can’t believe I get to live here” kinda days. So glad I got to spend it like I did.
I had already set today aside as a chance to celebrate my birthday with family while my parents were in town and my kids were out of school. So, here’s how we partied on this amazing day.
8AM: Full family nerf gun war! Check out grandma bunkered down!

9AM: Taught Billy to ride his bike sans training wheels! No pics, but super fun and exciting for him.
10:45AM: Starbucks run.
11AM: Went to Coronado and played tourist, renting “family bikes”. In an hour and a half we did the full Coronado loop. We started where we rented them at the Ferry landing. We then rode to the Coronado Bridge, over to the Hotel Del, then across to the North Island Entrance and finally back to the Ferry Landing along the bay. Super fun way to play tourist on the perfect Day!

1PM: Ate lunch at a BBQ place at the Ferry Landing.

2PM: Played in the Bay and enjoyed the sand, water, and weather.

3:30PM: Ice Cream stop at Cold Stone.
4:30 PM: Family nap time 🙂
6PM: Dinner at Red Lobster with my family, parents, and in laws.
8PM: Gifts and Ice Cream Cake. I got a new single cup coffee maker, a nice coffee canister, a new dremel tool, some money for mustang parts, and a new pair of Keen sandals. I scored big time!
10PM: Blog and off to bed, ending a dang near perfect day. THANK YOU God for the privilege of breathing and doing life with family here in San Diego. Thanks family for joining me today. Super blessed by all of you!


  1. That is a very nice plug for our book. Thank you for your very sweet words. Not sure we live up to them all, but so thankful for the support of our family. BTW that is a VERY nice birthday day! Can you plan mine for me in July :)?
    Love, Alisha and Brad and boys 🙂
