Travel: San Diego day 1 & 2

Our San Diego vacation was AMAZING. The hardest part was the flight from DC to SD. Full flight, two kids, especially with a super active toddler. Between Tony and me and tons of snacks we entertained her but we were counting down hours. But we survived! 🙂

We arrived there at 3:30pm. Went to pick up the rental car. Not there! Right, the company was not on site and we ended up renting at a different company at higher price. Oh… well. Lesson learned, never book at the cheapest place.

Fortunately the rental house was just 20 min drive from the airport. A 3-bedrooms house at mission bay area.

with a view to the bay in the living area. I immediately felt I was on vacation-mode.

My parents stayed with the girls while Tony and I went to get some food. We found a 99 Ranch market 10 min away and had all kinds of Chinese groceries.

The next day we went to Balboa Park in early morning (thanks to the 3 hrs time difference!). We were surprised by the beauty of it

after nap, Tony took the family to La Jolla beach and let me rest. It was Sofia’s second time at the beach, the last time she was 11 months old so she doesn’t really remember it. She was super excited!!!

I cooked dinner for the family: grilled cod with vegetables and rice. I instead had a big bowl of oatmeal with veggies and a big bowl of kabocha. Went to bed full and satisfied. 🙂
