Vacation Recovery

We're back from a WONDERFUL vacation to San Diego, and now we're in recovery mode. Catching up on sleep, doing laundry, sorting through everything we managed to stuff into our van, and figuring out exactly what we did with our time before last week.

We stayed for a week at one of our favorite locations: Coronado Island. Jake and I vacationed there by ourselves 3 years ago, and had decided that it would make a great place for a big family vacation. So we recruited Jake's whole family to come along with us this time and all stayed together in a big beach house.

Part I: The Beaches

Coronado has 2 beaches: A "kid beach" in the bay, where the waves are small and the water is slightly warmer, and the main beach that faces the ocean. We went to both.


























Part II: SeaWorld


































Part III: Balboa Park

An afternoon with nothing to do found our family of 4 at Balboa Park. While it's not an action-packed place, we all had a really great time. The scenery is beautiful and the kids loved looking at the flowers and fish, and playing in the fountain.












































Part IV: Family
