San Diego in 24 Hours

We celebrated our anniversary this week by going down to San Diego. It is always tough to celebrate on anniversary since it is Dec. 28th so we usually celebrate it sometime later. This year we decided we wanted to go somewhere warm and sunny. We didn't have a whole lot of time so we only went down for one night. It reminded us of the time we went to San Fransisco with some friends for 24 hours, and we had a lot of fun.Andrew enjoying the plane ride (he had just finished his sweet potatoes he had for lunch).
We stayed at a cute hotel called Humphrey's Half Moon Inn. It is Hawaiian style and had lots of tropical plants (which made us think of my brother, Justin) and they even had tiki torches they lit at night. It was a fun place to stay.
We really enjoyed the sunshine, and palm trees. When we got to the hotel we changed into our shorts/capris and went out for the day. First we took a stroll in the park across the street from our hotel. Andrew got to sit up in his stroller for the first time. (He is usually in his car seat that attaches to the stroller.)

Then we headed to a local Mexican restaurant for lunch/dinner. We had yummy chicken enchilades and Andrew had green beans, and he couldn't get enough of them.
Next we hopped on a bus and headed to the beach. We got there just in time to watch the sunset. The beach was so nice, it would be fun to be there when it is warmer. We even saw some surfers trying to catch their last wave.
The next day we took a walk around Shelter Island where we were staying, and then enjoyed lunch at the restaurant at the hotel. We had a great time, and wished we could have stayed longer.

Looks like you guys had a blast!

How did you make the green beans so Andy would like them?

I am no expert, but my theory is that the Mexican restaurant smells paired nicely with the green beans. This made them taste better than usual, since smell is part of how you taste.

I think he would have liked the salsa, chips and white cheese sauce too but Kim wouldn't let me try ;)
