Saturday in SD

Diana was busy all day, but Carolyn & family were able to come down to visit with me. We hung out at the hotel a while, and then headed over to Horton Plaza for some shopping. We met up with Renee & Patrick there, as well as their friend, Thomas. Thomas promised Carl a helicopter ride some time...

Carolyn was sad she'd miss seeing Diana, but she still left her a cool manga. Diana was just going to be getting back too late for a chance to see them.


We had lunch at the Karl Somethingorother brewery (thanks!) and I think the kids liked the "beach" and the pool. Thanks for driving down to visit - that was great!


In the evening, Nae and the guys came to pick me up and we went to a diner on Coronado Island. Renee was pointing out stuff along the drive, but I could barely see anything because it was NIGHT!


We got back to the hotel to wait for Diana, and sat in the Lounge so we'd be sure to see her when she got back. It wasn't until 11:30 that Diana got in, and she had a nasty sunburn. Turns out the sunblock they had was waterproof, and she is allergic to that, so she didn't use it. Oh well.


We hung out with Nae & the guys a while longer and then we headed up to the room. Diana loves the manga and the little Hello Kitty charms & stuff she got.


There's an extra post on what Nae gave her coming up...

It was great getting to meet your sister and family (finally!) I loved being with you and taking you to the diner. Sorry that it was night there was just SO MUCH to see and we didnt get much time to see you in the day. I really enjoyed seeing you guyus there. I am glad that Thomas could entertain you with MY pants and his talk about the europe trip. He still hasnt stopped talking about it!!!
