Adventure // San Diego Spring Break

Hi, friends! I was pretty lucky this year & sort of had two weeks of spring break (one without school & one without work!), so we were able to fit in little a spur of the moment road trip to San Diego! I always love taking trips down there since it is where I am originally from & where most of my family lives. Plus, I definitely enjoy hanging out on the beach & soaking up the nice weather when I can!

We had a great time hanging out with my sisters, brothers-in-law, aunts, nephews, niece, & cousin. So much family to visit! One day while we were there, we went to a lake with my sister and nephews to visit my other sister who was camping there with her little family. The kids had a great time riding bikes in the dirt and playing on a splash pad. They were even able to push me into the water, if you can tell from the photo above ;) We also went swimming with my nephews & spent some time jumping on the trampoline. Those kids are fearless on that thing, I tell ya! They were just doing flip after flip and I couldn't bring my self to do a single one. Does this mean I am getting old? ;) My sister & I also got to have a little girls night out! We left the kiddos with Dai and my brother-in-law and went out for drinks and dessert for the first time since I'm 21 now. It was a lot of fun doing something "adult" like & hearing stories from my sister when she was my age & all the trouble she got into :)adventure, san diego, family, beach, road trip, dogs,
We also spent some time staying with my aunt who, lucky for us, lives pretty close to the beach. We started off each morning that we were with her with a nice, long walk down to the ocean to get coffee or have breakfast at a little cafe. One morning we also met up with my cousin and her dog so that the pups could play on the beach. They were so cute together and, luckily, they got along really well! While we were there, we also had a few family dinners and it was really nice to be able to see family that I usually just get to see around holidays.adventure, san diego, family, beach, road trip, dogs,
We really couldn't have asked for more lovely weather and I'm so happy that we were able to take full advantage of it! I definitely can't complain about laying on the beach or swimming in the ocean instead of being at work ;)

Sometimes it is tough being so far from my closest family members, but I want to try to make visiting them more of a priority. If you have the time to drive, it really isn't that bad of a trip down there! Plus, we made it there on one tank of gas, so $40 for gas sure beats the price of a flight and rental car.

By the way, happy Friday! Fridays are usually the best days for me. Tonight I am going to the Giant's game with my nanny family (with box seat tickets--score!), and I had the entire morning free, so it's been a pretty good day!

Tomorrow I'm looking forward to adventuring with Leah and spending the rest of the day with Dai. He told me that we can spend the day doing whatever I want, so I foresee outfit photos and a coffee date in our near future ;)

What are you up to this weekend?
Have a great weekend, friends!

That beach looks so inviting. It is so different than our beaches in NJ.
