We headed to Sand Diego the second week in May. Lex was so excited to go to the beach she had a countdown for weeks. We were excited to get away and have some fun. This was our first real vacation and the kids first time in a hotel. We stayed in a kids suite that had two rooms and one of the rooms had bunk beds. The drive to Cali wasn't horrible although we discovered that Rav doesn't sleep in the car and only finally passed out for 20 minutes after sobbing for 45.
When we got there we decided to head up to Carlsbad and visit Tips old mission. We went to the beach and walked along the pier and ate dinner at Ruby's at the end of the pier. Lex loved the beach and Rav ate the sand. Lexi was terrified of the pier but we had so much fun! After dinner we drove around and found Tip's first apartment and the first door he ever knocked on. It was a good start to our vacation!
