San Diego for our anniversary

In February we celebrate Josh’s birthday, our anniversary and Valentine’s Day all in the same week. We always try and do something fun hat week and this year we chose to go to San Diego with the kids.

We left the snow for the sun for a 4 day weekend and had a blast! The kids traveled really well and we made some great memories.

Thursday we flew into Orange County in the afternoon. We headed straight to downtown Disney to walk around and get some food. We passed the Build a Bear Workshop and J immediately saw the Star Wars bears. If you know J you know how much he LOVES his stuffed animals and Star Wars, so we let him build one. He chose Darth Vader ha!

Later that night we drove to the beach at sunset and walked around for a bit before getting some treats and heading back to the hotel.

Friday we spent all day at the San Diego Zoo. It was incredible and such a beautiful day. The kids took turns in the stroller(when J got tired I just put Lily in the Bjorn. We didn’t want to fly with the double stroller). I think we saw all the animals except the Panda bears. We were pretty bummed, but in order to see them you had to wait in a 45 min line in the Sun!

Saturday we drove to Midway to go to the USS Midway Museum. The ship is massive! It took us 3 hours to tour it(they give you headphones to listen as you go to each section), it was pretty incredible.

on the top deck of the USS Midway they had about 20 or so planes. J wanted to sit in them all!

On the way back we stopped in Old Town San Diego and visited the Mormon Battalion  and had some yummy Mexican food. Then we headed to the sea lions at the beach. I really enjoyed walking around at the beach it was so pretty.

Sunday we tried to go to church but it was Regional Conference so we drove by the Newport Temple then headed to the airport.

Such a fun getaway with lots of yummy food and quality family time.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
