I spent April Break in San Diego with my little sister, Laura. Her husband is a Navy engineer, so they live in paradise on the Navy's dime!! I am quite jealous.
Laura took me to lovely Balboa Park:
And to La Jolla Beach:
Is this not the most gorgeous thing you've ever seen?? I climbed through the tide pools to that rock, and I managed to only fall in the water twice. :)
Check out those fatty seals lounging on the beach...sure is the life, isn't it??
And to Coronado where Some Like it Hot was filmed:
And to the incredibly breathtaking San Diego temple (it was even more stunning inside, believe it or not):
In the midst of all of our sightseeing, we were able to spend a lot of time with my cousin Amber and her adorable children. It was so much fun--I don't get to see them enough!
We went to the famous San Diego Zoo:
And to the Mormon Battalion Visitors Center (which was the most exciting church visitors center that I have ever been to--seriously, it was the Disney Land of visitors centers with interactive displays, a video presentation, costumes, and even panning for gold):
After all that fun, we were tired!! (Or at least Dallen was!) What a snoog!
Finally, in typical Westover fashion, we ate way too much junk food! California has frozen yogurt shops on every corner, so we had to eat froyo every day. In addition to that, there were greasy, authentic Mexican food shacks and adorable little cafes.
Please notice the multiple chins...oh, and don't worry, Laura and I shared that pancake!
After our week of eating, we felt like this guy:
I am currently in the San Diego airport, waiting for my delayed flight to take me back to the Buff. I will miss you, Sister...thanks for the awesome trip!
