San Diego

Travis turned 38 on May 26th!  On June2nd we took a birthday trip to San Diego--just the two of us!!  It was so fun to take some time to remember how much we enjoy each other.  We laughed and talked, we drove around San Diego and ate really well, we visited SEA WORLD and the retired naval ship the USS Midway.  We came home June 5th already planning to go again next year.

Trav relaxing on our hotel balcony.  He needed some rest after all the energy it must have taken to drive our rental car like an absolute MAD MAN!

One of the many (maybe not many?) things Travis and I have in common is our love for Sea World.  We love it!  We did feel guilty being there without the kids, and Jake was very sweet to call and remind us Sea World is for FAMILIES.  I believe his exact words were "What are you doing there without me?!"  I'll tell you what we did: we flew through Sea World three times faster because there were three times fewer people!

Another thing Travis and I love--Diners Drive Ins and Dives.  There were quite a few options in San Diego for places Guy has eaten, but we settled on this fish joint.  Here is where we differ: Travis loves fish.  Jamie hates fish.  It took some stern coercing, but I had a halibut taco.  I see why Guy loved the place, but will not admit to liking fish.

Travis got to go to his first major league game.  It was so fun, but way too short!  The Padres are no bueno this year--the home team fand boo them.  Yikes!  Our seats were amazing and we had hot dogs and cracker jacks, and root root rooted for the home team.

The USS Midway was a fasciniating visit.  The kids would have been bored out of their minds, but we could have stayed there all day.
