Summer vacation in San Diego, CA

We tracked down the sun for some summer fun. While Santa Barbara is notoriously gloomy and cold in June we escaped to mostly sunny San Diego. We stayed at La Costa Resort and Spa which was the prefect mix of luxury spa experience and family friendly resort. There are lots of pools to appeal to all sorts of people... shallow kiddie pools, slightly deeper pools for the older ones, splash landing with 2 big waterslides, a small waterslide for the littles, and 2 quiet adults only pools, the spa pool and several scattered smaller pools around the property. Connor was in heaven at the kiddie pool where he could touch bottom the entire length of the pool but it was still deep enough to dive for his rockets and swim.

Who is this backward hat wearing teenager we met at the pool?

Connor's 1st time on a waterslide.

And now solo.

Dad is a waterslide junkie.

Connor and I loved having pina coladas by the pool.

Best buddies. Dad taught Connor how to play Marco Polo... these really are the good ole days.

Happy Mommy at the Spa.

Connor requested I take a picture of him hugging his daddy. He is our sweet sweet boy.

Next Lego Land and San Diego Zoo.
