Valentine in San Diego

Ben had a business trip in San Diego last week. He surprised me and the girls by flying us out there to spend Valentines together. It was so fun to take my two little girlfriends on the air plane and see them be so excited. I wish I would have got pictures of thier expressions as we took off into the air, even though Bella has flown a bunch of times, it was like it was her first, and to see them both walking down the halls pulling thier own little pink suit cases was so flippin cute! Ben greeted us each with a rose as we came down the escalader to baggage claim. ahh, so sweet!
San Diego was perfect! 80 degrees and sunny, just how I like it! We spent sunday at the board walk with Ben's good friend Gabe and his family. Monday we took the girls to Disneyland. I kept telling them that we were going to see real princesses, but all we saw was the back of Marry Poppins and Burt. We totally spaced that it was Presidents Day, so it was packed! They loved the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, Peter Pan, and It's a small world. Those are really the only rides we went on, but it was just enough, and the girls loved it!

The next two nights we stayed in the cutest little blue and white beach house on a pier over the water. You could feel the house move a little when the waves would come in. It was kind of scary, but super fun! We spent all day at the beach. At first, Coco would not walk on the sand because there was sea weed and she thought it was going to bite her toes. We all had to take our turn at explaining that it was just a plant, and would not hurt her, but she was not ok with it until the next day at the beach. Bella is a water girl at heart! No fear at all, she just goes for it, and the whole day we had to keep telling her to not go out so far! she loves to belly surf, and there were some big waves! Wednesday was a sad day when we had to leave the beautiful weather and head home. When we got home to Utah and walked in the door, Coco started crying, saying, not this house, I want the blue house! she thought we had moved to California and wanted the beach house! :) it was a perfect Valentines! Much comparable to last year! What a sweet Man us three girls have! Thank you love!

I love it! Trips always seem a little more exciting when it's on a whim and not well planned. The girls look happy as can be, so happy babies make for very happy mommy's! Love the belly shot, can't wait to squeeze and kiss on him!

looks like a ton of fun! we went to santa cruz for valentines, a last little trip before the baby comes. i wish utah had california weather, one can dream right?

i was wondering do you love your double stroller? i just ordered a jogging one today and my husband thinks it is going to be big, bulky and a pain. i am planning on putting the new baby and my 2 year old in it.
