San Diego

Warning: This is going to be a long post because I'm recapping a whole week! Chris and I spent a week in San Diego at the end of September. It was an amazing trip! We flew out from Salt Lake (Chris met me in SLC from Tampa) on a Wednesday night and checked into our hotel room at the Hilton Garden Inn Rancho Bernardo. The hotel was great. We arrived pretty late the first night so we didn't have a chance to do anything but go to sleep. The next day we visited the Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego.

It was really cool and had great shopping. We climbed the stairs (100, yes we counted) to the top of the Convention center and they were well worth it because the view was amazing.

Friday, we went to Sea World, where I got SOAKED within the first 2 hours of us being there. Chris stayed dry most of the day. It's amazing what they can train animals to do! The penguins , dolphins, turtles, and polar bears were our favorites. We also went on Journey to Atlantis 6 times!

Saturday we drove north about an hour to Mission Viejo where we visited Chris' family friends, the Torretos. They were great. They took us to Laguna where we had lunch and walked along the beach. It was a gorgeous day.

Sunday Chris went to the wedding while I stayed at the hotel and worked on cool little travel journal of our trip. Chris had fun at the wedding and he took me to dinner afterwards.

Monday we returned to Gaslamp and did a little more shopping. We also spent that evening watching the National League Tie-Breaker game between the San Diego Padres and the Colorado Rockies on the jumbo-tron outside of Petco Park. It was soo cool! We loved it! It was a great game, but unfortunately, the Padres lost.

We flew out the next morning, Chris to New York to visit his family and I back to Salt Lake. The trip was amazing, I hope we can return soon. I'm so happy I could spend the week with Chris, it was perfect! Thanks Chris.
