San Diego Weekend!

Got my hubby away for a weekend, we went to San Diego to see the Padres beat the Yankees! Both games!
Although we were so tired from walking around exploring San Diego Saturday we never made it to the game Saturday night, but Friday night was great and the Padres beat the Yanks both nights!

Here is a recap in photos:
Our cheap seats, as high up and in the corner as you can get!

Our view of the game!

The view from my seat when I turned around!

Going to go tour the USS MIDWAY NAVAL SHIP

My Tour Buddy!

I think he is finally getting the hang of this "vacation thing"!!

His new nickname "Chuck Smiley"

I was so excited to find a Tomcat!! My mom worked most her life building and inspecting
 the radar components of this fighter jet!

The Tomcat!

We stopped for a drink and lunch here, fabulous food, garlic bread,
clam chowder, shrimp cocktail, ceaser salad, wine and beer!

One of the street vendors was a rock balancer! Amazing!!
We watched him just pick up rocks and balance them, no glue, no magnets, nothing!

Dinner Saturday night, 2 pound lobster, I thanked him for providing us with a very delicious dinner!!
He was amazing tasting!!

My Drunken Sailors!
What a fun and wonderful time we had in San Diego! Charlie really relaxed and enjoyed himself, I was so happy for him, he works so hard and to get to see him enjoy the rewards of his work is so great!
I must close with this photo, I always loved this picture of the couple kissing after the war ended..they have a giant statue of them in San cool! Kisses for my husband for taking me on these fun little trips, baseball and food and fun..just does not get any better than that!

No WAYYYYYYYYYYY - I would like to see that rock balancer dude for myself! I figured those had a metal rod down through them!

Looks like you and Mr. Smiley had a fabulous time - need to do that more often!
