We spend time in San Diego with Brad's family every year around the holidays. It is a wonderful escape from normal life, from the rain and perpetual dampness of the Pacific Northwest. I relish the sunshine and 70 degree days, it's like another world.
This year was particularly important because we met sweet little Rachel for the first time. Our beautiful niece has a very healthy pair of lungs and an enchanting grin. She also makes an exquisite Minnie Mouse.
Below are a mixture of photos from Old Town, Del Mar, and Rancho Bernardo.
P.S. I beat Brad at miniature golf - I got a hole in one, it was pretty exciting.
