i spent the long weekend in san diego at the colt's with martha and kamry. seriously, it was so glorious, and it was exactly what i needed.
we left thursday night and drove to hurricane and slept at kamry's grandparents house. they were so cute! then we got up early friday and drove to san bernardino to drop off kam's sister so she could go with her cousins for the weekend. and we got to chula vista around 3 and then we went shopping at this awesome outdoor mall for a bit, dinner at chili's, forever at bestbuy getting the martha's new phones/playing dj hero (which i stink at btw).
saturday we got up super early and went to the san diego temple and did baptisms. it was so beautiful! then we went to this beach in la jolla called "children's pool" because it was built for kids, but then sea lions took over! so there is just this little cove with tons of sea lions that just come ashore and bask in the sun. they were so cute! then we went to a different beach called silverstrand (which i thought was funny because the beach we always went to when we lived in NP is called silverstrand too) and we played on the beach and wave jumped in the ocean. the water was pretty freezing, but it was really fun. then we went home and sat in the hot tub. it was such a beautiful day! then we had burritos at this little mexican food place by their condo. it was soooo goood. and we went shopping again so mj could buy some awesome teal vans (you don't even know how tempted i was to buy some too...) then we came home and watched hp6, but marth and i both fell asleep on the couch and didn't wake up till 6:30 the next morning...
sunday we got up and went to stake conference with mom and dad colt and the rest of southern california because it was a broadcast from slc. it was reaaally awesome. then we went and visited kamry's old roommate rachel's family in el cajon. the have a huge yard with a bunch of orange trees so we picked a ton and made fresh orange juice... it was soo good. and we played last word. don't worry, i dominated. i thought it would be awkward, but it was actually really awesome. then we went back to chula vista and had sunday dinner which was fantastic. then we finished harry potter and hot tubbed again. it was really nice and relaxing.
then we got up early monday and left for the journey home. it rained/fogged a bit, but for the most part i think it was a good drive. i slept a lot. we stopped just north of las vegas and we may or may not have been called hoes by some drug dealers. and i also may or may not have given away a water bottle to a homeless person and i may or may not have regretted it when i was thirsty again 10 minutes later.
overall, it was a fantastic weekend.
p.s. happy birthday martin luther king jr!
p.p.s. pictures to come as soon as i get them from kam (i forgot my camera)
