Travel, Homecoming, Soccer and PINK!

We took a quick trip to San Diego the weekend before Ross had meetings in Anaheim. Great plan- we would drive to San Diego Friday- spend Saturday and Sunday seeing the sights and then take Ross to the car rental and leave him to head into Anaheim. The Kids and I were to stay the night in San Diego and drive home Monday morning.
Just a background- I LOVE SAN DIEGO! I beg and BEG and BEG for Ross to apply for jobs there so we can move- and live happily ever after in my dream city!
Since this trip I have changed my mind!! Completely!
We chose the ARMY/NAVY/AIRFORCE/MARINE Family and friends weekend- and there were people crawling all over the place! Shelli and crowds just don't mix! We did eat at our favorite place in Old Town and went to the newly upgraded "Mormon Battalion" museum that is ran by the sister missionaries. WONDERFUL!
The tide pools were awesome- one of our favorite things to do in California is see the tide pools.
We attempted to spend Sunday in Coronado- mostly just so Ross could get a kick out of driving Shelli across that awful bridge. I love the little island- but again it was crawling with crowds- THE ART FESTIVAL- of course! We could not find a place to park- when we finally did find parking it was a $15.00 per hour stall! WOWZA! But we had great crepes and watched the people look at their artsy stuff! We stopped for fuel and - believe it or not -the gas station was out- OUT! NO FUEL! What the heck? So I was envisioning having to walk across that bridge to get fuel- and walk back-
Luckily we made it! WHEW! We decided to drive to Anaheim and stay with Ross there. Good choice for us- he had an amazing room!

Next weekend- Homecoming! Baylie was invited by some dude named Tyson (I think)- He is a soccer player and invited her by supplying a pretty awesome soccer ball, bag and note! Smart boy! She said yes- bought the first dress she saw and some glitzy shoes- allowed me to straighten her hair and put some make-up on her, and she was off! She is the easiest going girl I know!! And BEAUTIFUL!

Then there was the Senior Soccer Game! Lots of PICTURES! So sad! She cried- they all cried! This group of girls have played together since 3rd grade! They are like family! She will miss them and we will miss the parents! We have gained some really great friends through hours upon hours of soccer! LOVE THEM!

AND for our sweet Des- A PINK FAMILY NIGHT!
I wish I had taken pictures of Ross and Jordan tying the shirts- they did a great job- Paisley and I sprayed them. And then we all took pictures for Des! We LOVE YOU DES!!
