San Diego Playing Tourist :)


So Trevor and his friends decided to go on an overnight deep sea fishing trip! This left one of the other wives in the group and me alone. Since Billie hadn't really seen San Diego before my mother and I decided to give her a quick introduction to some of the fun things you could do downtown! We ate lunch down town at Babycakes and had the best tomato basil soup ever, with the most amazing homemade croutons (&some cupcakes if you remember) We walked around the beautiful Sea Port Village, and showed her some of the great boats around in the harbor. There happened to be a special Navy Sailing Ship from Chile there which got my mother all excited seeing that Alex my little brother is serving in Chile right now! The boat is the second tallest and longest sail boat in the world. Later that day we all went to a great show down town called Mix Tape, a fun musical highlighting the best of the 80's. It was a jam packed day and we were so exhausted when we rolled in around midnight :)

It was a perfect day! :)

Oh & P.S. Today is my HALF birthday! Does anyone else take note of their half birthdays? haha :)
