OK this is very rare....my husband actually took a Thursday afternoon to a Sunday off...I can usually get a Friday to Sunday out of him but a Thursday, no way...
it all started when he decided he wanted to Ethan our 11 year old grandson ocean fishing...we had to drive to San Diego on Thursday, check in to hotel, dinner, sleep then get up at 5:00 am, get to charter boat and go half day fishing then back to hotel for Friday night- Petco park Padres baseball game...then Saturday morning get up go to the Midway naval ship tour back to hotel for Saturday baseball game, then sleep and home for Sunday.

Yep, it worked out fine...
we got to San Diego in 7 hours, checked in at the Hilton Bayside hotel, went to dinner at the Fox bar and grill, very good food, sleep, and then the boys got up  and went to the charter boat, I slept in, ordered room service, coffee and breakfast sandwich , then went to Spa for facial and manicure then the pool , got back at 3:00 just in time for them to get back and tell me Charlie caught a 27 pound tuna, a record catch for the boat....We went to dinner at the spaghetti factory to celebrate, then to the ball game.. fun!!

Saturday the boys headed to the naval ship and I went shopping on the seaside village, once they got back we all went to the ballpark and watched the Padres win again...back to hotel and up at dawn to drive home....
it was very special weekend...We all had so much fun!
