Tucson and San Diego


I'm finally writing about our trip to Tucson and San Diego last month!  Alex's dad turned 60 this summer and the whole fam went to San Diego for a few days to celebrate!  We had so much fun!!

There were eight of us total and we rode in a big van (that Alex's dad drove) to San Diego on the 4th of July!  The trip is only about six hours.

We stayed in a super cute Airbnb house!

It was in such a cute neighborhood with other fun houses, lots of places to walk, and it was so quiet.

After we figured out which rooms everyone was staying in, we went to dinner at Cafe Coyote.

It was really cool and the whole place was sort of indoor/outdoor.  The food was good!

We went to Seaport Village to walk around and then watch fireworks after that!  They do a few shows all at the same time all around that area and the fireworks were great!

We stayed in San Diego for four nights and almost every morning, at least a few of us would walk to a cute market called Grant's.

The first afternoon we went to the aquarium.  It was so nice outside and the aquarium is so cool!

We ate dinner at a place called Piacere Mio that was in walking-distance of the house.  It was some of the best pasta I've ever had!  We got dessert at a nearby ice cream shop called Daily Scoop on Juniper.  It was really cute.

The next day we went to Coronado Island to go to the beach!

It was really nice out but too cool to get into the water!

We had fun relaxing on the beach and walking around.

For lunch we went to this cool place called Tavern.

We went to dinner at a place near Seaport Village called Puesto and we all got really interesting and delish tacos!

We brought lots of games and cards so every night when we got home we played games!  

The next day we went to the zoo, which was right by the house.  There were so many animals out and about!

We got to see several baby animals in different exhibits and they were so cute!!

We stopped at a cute cookie store called The Cravory on the way home.  Yum!

For dinner we walked from the house to a restaurant called Buona Forchetta and we had some really yummy Italian food! We sat on their nice patio area and the weather was perfect.

When we got back to Tucson, we got to spend a few days there before flying back to Baltimore.  We spent lots of time with the sweet pupsters, relaxed, went on walks at night, and had more fun!

We got to see my aunt Chris one afternoon, which was so fun!

We had such a blast spending time with Alex's family!  It was such a fun, relaxing trip!

Thanks for reading!
