I don't know why we haven't taken a trip with my bestie and her hubs before because it was so fun! She is like the sister I never had, we both have little boys, and our husbands get along great! And San Diego is now one of my top vacation spots, I can't wait to go back. If you're looking for somewhere to go put it at the top of your list! I can't wait to use Project Life to document all our adventures! And I can't wait to go back and do all the things we just didn't have time for. Here are some highlights though!
At La Holla Cove with all the sea lions! I could have spent the whole day here I think!
We took a sunrise cruise of the bay (or is it a harbor?) and it was awesome to see everything and learn interesting facts along the way.
The highlight of the trip for Jon was taking a tour of Ballast Point Brewery. I'm not a fan of IPA's but it was fun to see him geek out. He was an industrial engineer by schooling and still finds stuff related to that fascinating. Like my fashionable glasses? LOL! And that's a lot of beer cans...FYI they are empty.
We did a lot of running in the mornings so we stopped by this statue on one of them and it's a good thing, we never made it back on our normal sightseeing outings!
And then my mom, step dad, Ian and I went to the Illinois State Fair. We have gone for about as long as I can remember so it's fun to do with Ian now. He loved it and we totally wore him out. He very rarely falls asleep in the stroller and was starting to when we left so I picked him up and he almost fell asleep with me carrying him which NEVER happens :-)
Feeding and petting a baby llama (or alpaca?). He loves animals.
The butter cow.
He loved the big slide and could have ridden it all day! At five bucks a pop, he got to ride it twice, lol! It was a good workout hauling him up to the top though!
And now onto my card. It's funny that I showed you all that summer fun and I have a Christmas card, ha! I played around briefly with my new holiday catalog goodies before we left and did mainly some really simple cards. You really can't go wrong with simple!
I really like the little holly stamp set and the holly builder punch. Holly is just SO Christmasy and I really love that sentiment with the different fonts and the swirly doodle things! I'll add the supplies later, I've misplaced my catalog at the moment and it's time to go get Ian from his nap ;-)
I hope you enjoyed the peek into our last few weeks. Hopefully stamping will be more regular now...and blogging too ;-)
