Weekend in San Diego!

We just got home from a fun weekend getaway.  We were in San Diego less than 48 hours but we think we hit the high points, and we had a great time.  The weather was fabulous, with low 70s during the day and 60s at night.  JJ got to wear some cool-weather clothes that have been hanging in his closet at the ready.

Other than being on a sleep strike the first day, JJ was a very good boy.  He didn't cry on the plane rides and received many compliments from fellow passengers (both on his behavior and his cuteness!). 

This little monkey is ready to board the flight to San Diego!
Strolling through the Gaslamp Quarter on Friday night.
Here are a series of pictures of JJ & Mommy at the San Diego Zoo.
(This might look like a goat statue, but it's a real goat!!)
And now JJ & Daddy at the zoo:
We did A LOT of walking during our 5 hours at the zoo and really worked up an appetite for delicious IN 'N' OUT BURGERS!
Next up was a trip to Mission Beach.  This was JJ's first time feeling sand in his toes.  He seemed to like how it felt, and we succeeded in preventing him from eating any sand.

Next JJ sticks his feet into the Pacific Ocean.  It was cold!  He was a little shocked by the temperature but was a good sport.
After breakfast on Sunday, we walked through a Farmer's Market and were given free pluots (plum/apricot hybrids).  I let JJ taste mine and he LOVED it!  He slurped on it aggressively until I made him stop.
We enjoyed walking aroud Old Town on Sunday, seeing the historic buildings and hitting the shops.  We got JJ a really cool frog puppet.  Here are JJ and Dad with the artillery in Old Town Park:
Good times.  Now back to the grind for a few days, and then a visit from Grandma and


  1. Looks like a good time was had by all. Love the lobster outfit. And how appropriate for the beach. Cool sweater JJ. You sure know how to dress dude.

  2. Oh my. Just when I think JJ can't get any cuter I see a picture of him sitting at the airport or next to a goat and the Cute-O-Meter explodes.
