Caroline + Friends + Averills + Point Loma

She's in town and we're having a great time!

You might remember that her last trip to San Diego included a visit to the See's Candy Shop in the airport. Becoming a tradition.

Caroline arrived packed to the gills with gifts. Spoiling the little punks!

Love this new apron top for Laine. So cute.

Sugar from Jack. Not a common occurrence.

Went to visit Holly and fam at their house near the harbor. Fantastic views!

Carter and Ainsley. She's getting big.

Sweet girls.

We're surrounded by a bunch of crazies, Holly included. Of course, this is why we get along so well. Coco, recognize that shirt Nicholas is wearing?

Umh......not sure about this group.

Punkin Jack. It doesn't fit.

Met the Averills for lunch at Ruby's in Carlsbad. Chaotic and fun.

Lainey loves Uncle Bob. Here she is flirting with him. We'll cover the family tree eventually.

Took off from there and headed to Point Loma. My cousin, Cam, called me a full time tourist upon leaving. Little does he know what a compliment I consider that.

San Diego is in full bloom. It can't get any prettier. This picture doesn't do this color justice......absolutely gorgeous flowers on the side of the highway. Looks like a flourescent pink blanket. They're everywhere.


The Cabrillo National Monument. Very cool.

Tidepools in close range.

Lainey's a delight these days. Stay tuned for the best picture ever of her brattiness.

Thank you, strange man, in the background.

Absolutely beautiful part of San Diego.

From this point, you can see 360 degree views. Mexico, included! Yes, we're that far south.

National Cemetery........beautiful.

Lainey showed JoJo the sights.

Haunted Light House. We'll go back for this part of the tour. Left in time to cook out dinner and get a good night sleep for Disneyland tomorrow! The Rand fam is going, too. Can't wait to see them!

San Diego Bay. I love living here.

More later as time allows. Hope yall had a great weekend!

What in the name of gas prices is goin' on over there?? Holy shiz.

Loved the pics! Cute as always and oh so many pretty ones. But I'm glad I don't live there. I would be gas poor. That is crazy insane.

The flowers are gorgeous right now. I love going to Cabrillo National Monument. It's a fantastic view. The cemetery is a must see on Memorial day. They put flags on every single grave. I'm so glad your sister got to come back for another visit.

I love that one of the kitty's is named JoJo. That's my middle name...Jo no JoJo and what the nephew's call me.

I heart Cali. Just think - summer veggies are about to be everywhere out there.
That's my favorite part.
Lovely flowers and cute kids too :)

Are you freaking kidding me with the gas? Hope yall are riding your bikes everywhere! All though it seems we are not far behind. Caroline looks great!!!! So glad she is visiting. Have fun at Jay Leno, but remeber MM is mine so keep your little hands off!!!! Love that group pictures of all the kids dressed up. I am glad I am not the only one who lives in crazy town

What a fabulous weekend. I mean it. Caroline looks fantastic. Will you ask her where she got the apron top for Lainey?

What's up Sarah Palin? "I can see Mexico from my house!"

Kel - Caroline bought LC the apron top from Cassie Cakes on Etsy. She has your size, too!

Had to look at this really fast, but every time I see your photos it makes me want to live in Southern CA!!! If it wasn't so darn far away from all of our family I'd try talking Brandon into it. Have a fabulous time and tell Caroline that someone she has never met, but is a fan of hers, says hello!!!! Aw heck, tell the rest of your family that too. Especially Blake, he needs to know I'm a crazed freak as well.

Allyson and Dave said...

I love how excited the kids get when Caroline comes to can see it in their eyes. You must visit the haunted lighthouse at night...I want to hear about that.

Coco said...

Caroline looks AMAZING!!!!!! Holy crap!!! AMAZING!!!!

Glad y'all are having fun.
