Every once in a while, I have to pinch myself and make sure I’m not dreaming. San Diego can be so beautiful and sometimes doing life here feels surreal. I never “wished I could live here” and there are lots of beautiful places on this planet, but some days I find myself in this “world class destination” and looking at the tourists around me and wondering why God said we could live here.

Saturday was one of those days. I found myself on more than one occasion asking myself, “Are you kidding me? This can’t be real.” Since Tyler’s soccer tournament was canceled due to the rain all week making the fields unplayable, we decided to take the kids to the Children’s Museum in San Diego. Oh boy, so much fun. We landed parking on the street for $2 and hung out in this kids wonderland of play and creativity for a few hours. Plus… since we have like 500 kids now, the $10 per person entrance fee got us so close to a season pass that I sprung for the extra $5 it required and now we can go all year for free.

here’s some of our fun in photos….

Afterward we headed to Seaport Village for lunch and to see the boats and Grandma even sprung for a merry-go-round trip too… The whole day amounted to some great bonding and an entire new set of “firsts” for Becky and Billy.

I’m sure my rainy days are coming, but this valentines day was a sweet day of love.


  1. I bet Becky & Billy are having the time of their lives! I’m sure all of you are. Looks like you had an awesome day. I agree San Diego is a beautiful place to live, it doesn’t always get the credit it deserves.
