Our Anniversary was on February 2nd and instead of catching up on things like I had planned on over the weekend, I was kidnapped!!! Just a couple of hours after golfing Paul came home and told me to get dressed and pack a bag, "you're being kidnapped" is what he told me. So upstairs to pack I went, while I was up there he came in to give me an early gift, I was soooooooo excited when I opened it, he had bought me the camera I had asked for, that was a great surprise as well.
We ended up in San Diego near Seaport Village, we stayed at the Manchester Hyatt (gorgeous), and spent most of Saturday walking around Seaport. It is full of cute little shops and we went into almost all of them, ate frozen yogurt & popcorn. We had a great time. Sunday we woke up early had a great breakfast and then we went to walked around a bit and went to Mass. The Church was St. Anne's and it was very cute. The pastor is Reverend Carl Gismondi, FSSP, and all Masses are Traditional Latin Masses, I wish there was one closer to us.
Later that day we drove to Balboa Park, there are many things to see, so we started with the Japanese Gardens and it was simple but very calming. Next was the Botanical Gardens and it was nice, a lot of the plants we had never seen before. After that we stopped by one of the museums for a bit, the lower gallery's had a lot of modern artwork, which I don't really care for, but upstairs was the Masterpiece Gallery and both Paul and I really enjoyed that. The last thing we did was go to the Science Museum and watch an IMAX film on the ocean life, the IMAX part of it was great and we even learned some minor interesting facts, but the message was to much about global warming, I found that to be pretty annoying, but it was still fun. Once the movie was over it was back to the hotel and find a place to eat.
Monday we were up early picked up some coffee and went for a nice walk while everything was closed, made our way back to the hotel for the BEST BREAKFAST BUFFET EVER, and headed home.
It was a great weekend, I love leaving all the worries and stresses of live once in a while to just focus on enjoying each other's company. Since Monday was our actual Anniversary we ordered pizza, watched a movie, and exchanged gifts. The end to a perfect mini vacation.
I have pictures put haven't put them on the computer yet. I'll post them soon.
