Last week we went on my family’s summer vacation to San Diego! It was AMAZING!
Every single day was a blast! I wish we could go back and re-live it all again!

I just love getting to spend so much quality time with my parents and siblings! I wish I could see them this much all year long.

We spent most of our days at the beach! We did lots of boogie boarding and sandcastle building. The weather was so perfect! After leaving 100 degree Utah, 75 felt like HEAVEN.

We spent a lot of time on the bay paddle boarding. We also took out a sailboat for the first time, Each of us said it was our favorite memory of the trip. It was hilarious!!

It was also pretty fun that we got to spend the 4th of July on vacation. We played on the beach all day then had a little BBQ in the evening  before the fireworks

The cutest little girl ever.

The fireworks in San Diego are crazy amazing! They go off in three different places and are all coordinated. It was amazing!

It doesn’t feel like a vacation unless you get some authentic shaved ice!

My little brother had his 18th Birthday while he’s been staying with us! He’s an amazing tennis player, so I made him a tennis ball birthday cake. I’m pretty happy with how it came out!

    What a fun vacation! My husband served his mission is San Diego but I have never been there, I mean we've been to Southern California like a million times but never made it down there. Would love to go someday though. Your dog is so cute!
