Over the weekend we went to San Diego. My (younger) brother works at Nordstrom and asked if Pearl could be in their fashion show. So we made it a weekend all for Pearl! Remember I said I wanted to spoil her as much as possible before little brother gets here ;).
Friday night we met up with X and ate at a Japanese steak house. Saturday morning we went to the fashion show and grabbed a bite to eat. Afterwards, we went back to the hotel so Pearl could nap before going to the beach. After two hours of trying to nap I decided we should just go to the beach. Of course she fell asleep on the way there! She was NOT happy when we woke her up, but was fine when she saw beach, birds and people. We stayed at the beach for a couple hours. Pearl didn't like walking on the sand. She was so cute trying not to touch the sand, like she was playing lava floor haha. The ocean was so cold! So we just dipped her toes in. She did walk on the wet sand for a little. Joseph and Cory played with her in the sand. She ate snacks and enjoyed the birds! We ordered in and just relaxed that night. Sunday morning we woke up early enough to get ready and attend the 11am mass at USD's church. It's such a beautiful church, one of my favorites. Afterwards, we went to Nordstrom to say goodbye to X and grab something to eat. Then it was off to the zoo! I still can't believe how packed the zoo was. There was lots of walking up and down hills. We spent only a few hours there, because we were exhausted, hungry and still had to drive home. Just seeing how happy Pearl was made it all worth it! She was so happy afterwards even though she hadn't really had a nap (again). We bought her a stuffed elephant and book, her grandparents bought her a stuffed panda and Uncle Joseph bought her a stuffed tiger and souvenir coin. Spoiled girl! It was a really good weekend and I'm glad we were able to do it.
