San Diego Summer 2021- Part II

More primo adventures in San Diego!

On this day we headed up to Del Mar to eat at Sammys, the restaurant Pepe manages.  


He gave us the royal treatment sampling so many delicious dishes.  He just kept bringing food out in true Pepe Style- plate after plate.  Then at the end he brought out a sky high plate of cotton candy. WHA?!? Nooooooooooo
It was followed by a HUMONGOUS chocolate sundae.  Pepe is all about food and he never disappoints! 
Muchas gracias cuñado!
He is friends with the manager of the movie theatre next door too, so inaddition to a fabulous lunch, he got us free tickets to this posh theatre with servers!  We saw Cruella and it was so fun!

No trip to San Diego is ever complete without a hike up Cowles Mountain.  I know I post it every year, so I guess you could say it's a tradition.
The only thing that changes are my tights. haha This year these Kyodan leopard tights were my go to.  So comfortable and they stay put (on sale right now too)!
It wasn't just us.  Of course we brought all the kids who wanted to go.
That's right, Mateo is not in the picture.  He has firmly stated that he does not enjoy hiking.  I am, of course, going to make it my mission to change his mind. 
He is frequently missing from the cousin shots though.  He mostly hangs out with Chacho and Jalyn.
These guys are UP for going anywhere and running around all day! 
Don't get me wrong there was some ipad time too.
We hit tio Jerry's pool up one more time the last week.
This is Chava, Cariza's boyfriend and I love him.  Get married already!!!
Family, pool, food, Pegs and Jokers.  The day was perfect!

Wanted to share this photo of the front yard before we left. 
It is TOTALLY torn up.  I can't wait to see it next Summer.  House will be painted, walkway, fence, pool, patio. It's going to be a WHOLE. NEW. HOUSE!
A big thanks goes out to the Alexander neighbors who let the kids hang out in their back yard A LOT this trip.  Next year we will be in the pool with you guys every day!!
This was only the first set of good-byes.  Most of the family was heading up to the Rancho Bernardo Inn for a little "Staycation" before we left.  
This "Inn" should be called a resort.  With lush gardens and winding paths, this place is gorgeous. There were so many areas to explore. 

Erin, Maia and I were hoping to get into the spa for a facial but unfortunately they were bookedđŸ˜©  We did get to spend some time at the private spa pool area, which was soooooo peaceful....
That in itself was almost a spa treatment.  I mean we came from this pool..... 
Haha..a little more action over here!

They were back and forth to the hot tub and pool.
We hung out here all day and just ordered lunch here.  It was so easy.  A perfect couple of days really!
In the pool area sat this ping-pong table and there was some heated competition.  
Abuela was the reigning champion, but Maia did steal the title by a point!

We had one special evening eating out on the patio by the fireplace, it was such a treat. The food was delicious! 
The primos had their own table and I loved hearing all of the chatter and giggles wafting over to our table. 

These two best buddies squeezed in one last BIG hug before Juliana headed home for the night. We were heading to the airport the next morning. They are really going to miss each other! 

We flew out of LAX and unfortunately it was a quick goodbye due to all the congestion at drop off.  Mis suegras are the best!  They were happy to take us .  Im loving this picture with Tata in front of the airport.  
 We are going to miss you guys (and the whole family!) so much!
Adiossssssssss familia! Nos vemos en 9 meses!
