SURPRISE!

For our 3rd anniversary this last Tuesday I suprised Troy with a trip to San Diego. We had SO MUCH FUN!!! It was really nice to get away. It is also a really good thing that we have an anniversary during spring break because I get the time off. Thanks to Grandma Lynda for babysitting Lucy. They also had tons of fun and she was very good at sending us videos of Lucy. Here is a little of our trip! First stop, MIGUEL'S!!!! We just LOVE their white sauce! It is a dip for chips and it is SOOO wonderful! I swear its one of the reasons I gained 40 pounds in college!
We had to stop at PLNU ( where I got my undergrad) so I could relive the memories and pick up a new sweatshirt and alumni sticker :) This is a view from the dorm I stayed at my freshman year. You just walked down that little path you see straight to the ocean. AHHH so many memories!

Another shot further away from the dorm I stayed in. Dorm is on the left, ocean to the right.

My brick that is on Caf Lane. I had to take a picture of it!

We took a trip touring the U.S.S. Midway. Pretty cool! I wasn't too excited, however Troy knows a TON about the boat and how everything works and he explained everything to me, it ended up being an awesome trip. This is me pretending to be in the jail area they had for the people on the boat who committed crimes.
Sitting in an ejection seat!
Our attempt at a shot with the lifesaver. Not too bad if you ask me.
Our hotel, the Manchester Grand Hyatt in the Gaslamp Quarter.

Long view of the Lobby. It was an AWESOME hotel.

Back at the U.S.S. Midway, Troy in the drivers ( or should I say pilots ) seat
So sick!This was a replica of a bathroom in the ship, and they had a wax figure going to the bathroom!
This statue is new to me, it is right next to the U.S.S. Midway, near Seaport Village. It is ABSOLUTELY huge!!!!!
Our anniversary dinner....SOO good. Troy's first time having lobster tail!
When we came back to the room after dinner we had this little surpise waiting for us! It was from my mom for our anniversary ! So sweet!
We got our room really cheap, but still scored some pretty awesome views. Here is one view of the San Diego bay area.
Here is another view- this time the Gaslamp quarter.
Classic shot

We lined up to go to a Padres game and then decided we REALLY didn't want to watch them, we are fans of the Angels. AND they were playing the Dodgers to make it even worse. So we walked around downtown and went to the jacuzzi instead. It started raining a short time later, so it was a good thing we didn't go to the game! Petco park is really cool though, we ended up eating lunch the next day together on the grass that looks into the stadium. Totally surreal, if you go to San Diego you have to check the stadium out!
Before we left San Diego we had to sit and watch the airplanes come in. We ALWAYS do this when we go to San Diego. We have been known to drive to San Diego simply to do just this. :)
