20 years of Being an Espinoza

20 years of marriage?!?!  Yep, Ernesto and I got married back in 2001.

On our 10 year anniversary, I presented Ernesto with this video of all our travels together.  "Where is the 20 year video?" asked my niece Cariza.  😭😭😭. Im a total failure.

On our 15th anniversary, Ernesto had this cute idea of taking our picture with this sign...

I LOVED that idea and I wanted to do it again this year....but I used "markup" on my iphone  to make the sign instead. #lazyhttps://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1rJ5sdBe2uq3Ec-Z5xvCWBxilNeZBXNP9

It still turned out super cute, right?

We left the house early with the kids that morning.  Ernesto planned a surprise getaway for later, but we wanted to enjoy some family time first. 

Hiking Torrey Pines is one of my favorite things to do while in San Diego.  The views are beautiful and provide a perfect backdrop for photos. https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1AMF0Lcb4bgZLs1f8ff3D0J_HNHBoUI1E

Look how young we look with this backdrop haha

Once we made it down to the beach, the crab hunting started.https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1CRpJuiqvmFr1z7gJkyRKzLPYHADarv--

Marcelo is always the picker-upper and Paloma and Mateo point things out to him.  https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1_gpkZjIP5qdiwTPCxKFLhepK4WV8_U-Whttps://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=14ggQcCtcsbFyJC1guRE1tDxsrD4NQt7T

We thought a treat was in order (daily on vacation right?) so when Ernesto got off the highway towards Pacific Beach,I knew we were heading to Mr. Frostie.

The BEST peanut butter shake I HAVE EVER TASTED!!

Later in the afternoon, we left the kids with los abuelos (muchas gracias!) and headed north on the 5.  I was thinking we were heading to Del Mar, but at the last minute, Ernesto swerved to the Coronado Bridge exit!

When he pulled up to the Hotel del Coronado I was excited.  Over the years we have had drinks here a couple times, and walked around the property, but to actually stay here was a real treat.  Fitting for a 20 year anniversary night!!https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1br9VD_8Fov_gHf7YN-FP4b8BDKF1hlMl

This hotel is big, beautiful and iconic; the most famous in San Diego.  It was built in the late 1800's and is the only hotel on the beach!   The neighborhood is beautiful too and I love to walk around and check out the beautiful houses. The island definitely has vacation vibes. 

Walking in the hallways was the same.  I loved the umbrella covered walls. So chic!https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=13irRak6zGNzZQCIjsEB22pGwEHSCXmCn

In the courtyard there were many places to lounge and enjoy the scenery. https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1PZ_LmneL5-3AlAILF0_rTbtHPvIvtIkL

We started our evening at Babcock & Story Bar on the beach with some vino and a delish cheese sampler.

Ernesto was really craving oysters so we crossed over to Orange Street and had dinner at Brigantine.https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1K95656zVFSac7xIGkcOhzCNbncMDQALf

Yes that is a humongous octopus tentacle served with a beet salad.  It was muy rico!  

In the morning we  took our time to get up and outside, but really everything outside was better than the actual hotel room.

Don't get me wrong, the room was nice, elegant, comfortable, but I think this is the second most expensive room I have stayed in and I would say you are definitely paying for the whole beach front property instead of the room.

We grabbed coffees at the little open air store onsite and got to walking on the beach. https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1Z2QyUmlBhgLV7zMDWX5kQp1IFctCmbPt

There were a few very impressive sand castles lined up, we didn't need to worry that our kids were going to knock them down either HA

Since neither of us eat breakfast, by noon we were ready for a delicious lunch.  The day before I saw a couple sitting on a bench beachside with an amazing looking Poke bowl.  They said it was from Poke 123 down the street....so we headed that way!  https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1BFRHstD4pbQjhw9TjZwaWUzGWkSGRAxR

We also sat on a bench at the beach to eat ours and I felt so lucky!  Even just 18 hours alone with my man was a super treat!  We really have fun together.  I love hanging out with him.  

On to the amazing pool!

We asked abuela to bring all the kids after lunch so we could really get our money's worth at the pool all day! It was wonderful!

So glad we got to celebrate 20 years in a special way!  Definitely a memorable one! I love you mi amor!
