The Family’s Here!

My family came to California for the first time since I moved here. It’s been a busy, busy last couple weeks. My parents and my sister, even my aunt and uncle came. Stoked!

Aunt Jayne and Uncle Dave drove over from Arizona with my parents in tow. They stayed for three days before taking off back home to Scottsdale. My parents stayed for another week, joined the following weekend by my sister.

Below are shots from sightseeing with Dave, Jayne, Mom & Dad:

30 Day Project: #30 – La Jolla Cove

La Jolla Cove was my family’s last stop on their sightseeing tour of San Diego, organized and lead by yours truly. The seals put on a show jumping onto the rocks, waddling around, barking at each other, and baring teeth. Huge waves crashed onto the cliffs with help from the high tide. Watched a gorgeous sunset, too.

My parents and aunt and uncle came from Wisconsin and Arizona for a visit to San Diego this week. We went to Coronado Island for drinks at the Del, the Embarcadero for a walk along the bay, and La Jolla for seal watching. I love playing tour guide for friends and family. ☼
