Scenes from San Diego

We continued our little San Diego getaway last night with a sushi dinner and a quiet night back at the hotel, where Marshall fell asleep rather quickly. I, on the other hand, slept terribly, for no particular reason, and I'm hoping tonight will be much better.

This morning we slept in a little and headed to Cafe 21 for breakfast. It was our second visit there, and we've been thoroughly impressed both times. I ordered the pumpkin-feta-spinach omelet, and Terry went with the short rib omelet. Yeah, that's a thing, and it was awesome. Actually both were incredible. Marshall got to taste a little of everything, made a huge mess and a lot of noise, and likely drew a sigh of relief from the staff when we left without destroying the restaurant. He's not bad at all in restaurants, but after about thirty minutes he gets fidgety and makes his frustration known to all who will listen.

Here's the one photo I took of downtown, as we walked back to our hotel to check out.

After check out, we drove up to Balboa Park to hang out, walk around, and check out the sights.

We didn't realize how huge the park is! And the buildings are gorgeous. We didn't go into any of the museums or anything, but they had a ton of exhibits and interesting cultural centers.

I loved the botanical center.

By the end of our visit, Marshall was pretty tuckered out and ready for a nap, but he held out until we got to the car, mostly because Daddy gave him a ride across the bridge!

The little guy slept the whole way home (and only took one nap today...), and we spent the afternoon cleaning the house and playing. The floors are all clean now, and we have a meal plan, so I'm calling today a success.

Also, Marshall and Scout have reunited, so that's a success, too.
(It looks like he's standing, but he's on his knees. Thank goodness.)

It was a great weekend, and I'm so thankful Terry was able to step away from work for some quality time with us. We have a busy week ahead, too: My Gym classes, a swim lesson, a walk with a friend, and some tasty meals.
