1: August 4th, 2008. We loaded up the family truckster and headed off to San Diego. It was our first trip with both Jack and Owen. We got to our hotel around 11 am, unpacked and then took a drive to La Jolla so the boys could play on the beach. | San Diego | August 4th-6th
2: The Beach...La Jolla
3: Owen was so excited to go to the beach. He had been talking about it for days. Once there, he only wanted to play in the sand. I convinced him to put his feet in the water and when the ocean came rushing in towards us, he lept up and threw his legs around mine and would not let go. He said he never wanted to go back again.
4: Future Surfer...Jack
5: Jack is the future surfer. He loved the beach. He loved to feel the sand. He laughed watching the surfers ride the waves and the squaking sea gulls. I took him to put his feet in the water and he was so happy. We walked up the beach to get a better look at the surfers. After a few minutes he wanted to let go of my hand and walk by himself. He headed straight back towards the water.
