My dear husband planned a trip for us to go to San Diego to have a nice family vacation at the beach. He booked a hotel in La Jolla where you walked straight from your room onto the beach it was really gorgeous. So your thinking what a great idea huh, well, it rained. Yes I said rained and being from Arizona where it is already 107 everyday, we were frozen. We only packed shorts and tank tops, what morons. The first night we arrived, walked and had a great dinner and then walked on the beach so Mackenzie could find sea shells. We only walked for about 10 minutes because there were no shells and we were absolutely frozen. Then came night time, we had set up Mackenzie's tent and blow up bed to sleep in and she absolutely loved it, we watched a movie and then she curled up and went right to sleep. Meanwhile her daddy and mommy were in hell. First off the bed was the size of a twin, we are used to a king, and then the hotel is older so you can hear every word that is being spoken by the people in the room next to you. And of course the people next to us were extremely loud, so Bret thought it would be a good idea to turn the t.v. up loud because it would be better to hear that then the surfers next door. So now I am sleeping in a tiny bed and there is a bright light shining from the t.v., the t.v. is blaring and I can still hear the people next door. I got up put a towel over the t.v. which barely worked and then turned the t.v. down and just laid in bed staring at the wall. Finally the people were quiet and Bret and I were able to go to sleep.

The next morning we were exhausted, Bret could barely move, you should have seen him bend over to get something out of his suitcase, he was so sore from the horrible bed. Mackenzie and I went for a jog in the rain, and then we headed to Target to find warm clothes because Mackenzie was determined to play in the sand. To our surprise there was nothing warm sold at Target because it is the SUMMER!!!! Luckily Mackenzie had two pairs of long sleeve pjs and so she wore not just one but both of them. Bret and I on the other hand were bundled up in blankets etc, enjoying this wonderful and relaxing vacation on the not so sunny beach.

Bret's mom and sister showed up and decided that we should have plan B because we looked so miserable. Bret then decided that we should just stay at his moms because he wanted a good night sleep, and wanted out of this hotel of hell. Of course the hotel wouldn't give us our money back so we ended up paying for it even though we didn't stay there.

However I do have to say the trip ended great, we went to Mission Beach and Mackenzie got to play lots of games and ride rides and she had a blast. It was also nice to spend time with Teri and Kristen. So all in all the lesson of our trip was to just have a good attitude and anything can be fun.
