We just returned last night from our San Diego vacation. Over the next couple of days, I will post entries from each day of our vacation as I kept a journal during our vacation. This was our first time on a San Diego vacation so everything (except the zoo) was new to us and we had a blast.
DAY 1- September 6
Soccer and travel day
Today the kid's had their first soccer games and both won!! T's team looked awesome! After S's 1pm game, we headed to San Diego. We decided to stay in the L.A. area on the way to San Diego to ease up on the long drive. Since we arrived in the L.A./Anaheim area around 8:45pm, we decided to head over to our favorite Starwood Anaheim hotel to watch the Disneyland fireworks from the parking lot (this is the best place to see the fireworks as the hotel is right behind where they ignite the fireworks). We met a father & son from Australia who gave us lots of travel ideas for our dream trip (someday:)).
We stayed at the new Aloft hotel. This is a very modern, contemporary hotel! I really liked the change to the traditional hotel. There was interesting blue water "goo" (kind of like liquid slime) on the floor board of the elevator. The hotel was organized like a loft type dwelling. I would definitely stay here again!
September 6 is also my little sister's 39 forever birthday!! Happy Birthday, Sis!! Love ya!!
