The trip was fabulous, the weather was awesome! My only regret is that we didn't take one-two more days so we could spend more time at the beach. Well, that and that we forgot to have someone take a family photo with all three of us together, oops! We stayed at a Homewood Suites by Hilton so 1) we would have more privacy and 2) so we could prepare some of our own meals to save $$$. It worked out so well and think that we will stick with suites in the future for trips.
Day 1: Beach and old town San Diego
Saturday was my birthday and we headed to the beach.

The water was pretty chilly, but Austin loved playing in the sand. He also loved chasing the pigeons around the beach. I know that I was tired because at one point we were laying there soaking up the sun and a pigeon walked up and I go "look Austin there is a penguin." Dustin was half dozing off, but looked up and goes "really, a penguin?" Oh yeah, I mixed up my "p" birds, but wouldn't have been awesome to see a penguin instead of a pigeon?
That night we went to old town for dinner. We didn't take the camera, but the restaurant gave out complimentary post cards. Dustin wanted to take me to a seafood place, but I knew this restaurant was good so we went there instead. We ordered a whole pitcher of strawberry margarita, so we walked around down there for quite a while which was fun and enjoyed the music of a Mariachi band. Dustin even got me some roses.
