California Days 5-7: Romantic Getaway to San Diego/ Kids hang with Grandparents!

Lucas and I had the immense treat of enjoying 3 days/ 2 nights on a little getaway to downtown San Diego with just the two of us while Max and Maggie stayed with Grandpa and Abuelita. We had such a good time.

We got a great price on a swanky hotel in the Gaslamp district of San Diego, and when the hotel's host heard we were having an early anniversary celebration, she had champaign and chocolate-covered strawberries sent to our room. How great!

While in the city, we walked along the marina, went to see a movie, did some shopping, visited the U.S.S. Midway aircraft carrier, and enjoyed a fancy dinner out at The Melting Pot.

After 7 years of marriage, it's nice to still enjoy the person you married. I've been thinking about that a lot lately. Even in the midst of the ups and downs of life, Lucas and I still like each other. Most of the time. :-) That's really nice, and I'm thankful.

While we were away partying, the kids were having a blast, too. Grandpa and Abuelita took them to LEGOland! We don't have any pictures yet because they are on the grandparents' camera... but the kids were sure fired up about the special time they had while we were gone!
