Since we were already so far south, we HAD to hit San Diego and visit my aunt, cousins, the beach, Torrey Pines, and the zoo. We took the kids to the beach as soon as we got there, followed by a delicious Mexican dinner. Wednesday morning, Jonathan was at Torrey Pines Golf Course at 4:30 and was the first person to tee off at 6:57am on the South Course, something he’s always dreamed of. That afternoon we went to the SD Zoo, one of our favorite times together as a family. We had so much fun riding the bus and watching Charlotte in the Children’s Zoo – she wasn’t even afraid to pet the goats! (she’s quite proud of herself). That evening we met up with my cousin Kyle for pizza dinner at a playground overlooking the beach in Del Mar. He is so much fun and was able to laugh with us through Charlotte peeing in the bushes, Jonathan accidentally killing a chipmunk with his sandal, and a crazy blindfolded guy doing strange dance/karate moves on the grass. It was a lot of fun. Thursday, we checked out of our hotel and headed over to Aunt Wee Wee’s house to hang out and let Charlotte play in the yard before we hit the road again. I’m so glad we were there at a time when she was feeling well and strong enough to have some time with the kids. It was a sweet time together.
