Number of times out of 10 I want to say, "Stay classy, San Diego. I'm Ron Burgundy?" whenever I think of or say San Diego: 10.
Anyway, we went to San Diego for a few days this month with my parents, Zach, Kourtney, Brigette, Tera and Austin. Here's the rundown of our trip:
Thursday night: Sam gets home from work and we head to Mesa to meet everyone. Zach and Kourtney were supposed to be on their way already, but their car got broken into. Thankfully, only a pair of sunglasses was stolen. So we stay the night in Mesa. We watched some of Jimmy Fallon's Late Show and this little skit happened. Many laughs were had.
Friday: Dad, Mom and Austin leave, and the rest of us go to get the window in the suburban fixed. We leave and take a weird (scary) detour through a field and closed road, almost run out of gas because Zach forgot to get gas in Yuma, and eventually show up at the rental house. We went to the Rock N Roll Marathon Expo and Dad and Kourtney got the stuff for their run. Back to the house. Let me just tell you about this house: It was like the people who lived in it wanted to make some money so they just packed up for the weekend and left. All of their stuff was still there, it was dirty, there was no room for anything of ours, there were dirty clothes in hampers, and mouse poo. Not what we were expecting, so we got a refund and a hotel.
Saturday: Sam and I went to a Spanish Session at the San Diego Temple with Mom and Dad. Sam was excited, and the rest of us got to wear headphones the whole time. I really just wanted to stay in the temple all day. I just love going to the temple, and the San Diego temple is the biggest and most beautiful one I've ever been in. I'm ready to go back now.

After Sea World, we wanted to go to Olive Garden so Dad and Kourtney could carb-load for the race the next day, but there was about a 2 hour wait, so we found a local place and waited for about 15 minutes instead. We let a random Marine eat with us. We're nice sometimes.
Sunday: Dad and Kourtney woke up really early to go run 13.1 miles (does anyone else find this completely insane?!). When they got back, we went to Coronado beach. Sam had never seen the ocean before, and the inlets in town just were not enough for him. We didn't swim since it was only about 70 degrees outside, but I made Sam walk out into the water. We decided that when we're millionaires, we're going to buy a house there and live there sometimes.

On Monday we headed home. Zach, Kourtney, Austin and the girls went to Disneyland. Even though Sam has never been and I wanted to go, we decided to wait until we have kids old enough to enjoy Disneyland with. Sam said he would feel silly going, even though I've told him several times that you can never be too old for Disneyland.
