A couple weeks ago we went to Coronado (San Diego) for summer vacation. It was Emma's first vacation, so we weren't sure what to expect and we packed for worst case scenario.

My parents went with us and we rented a 2bed/2ba townhouse in the heart of Coronado Island. It was a beautiful place, had a full kitchen, living room with fireplace, washer/dryer and two full bathrooms. Only thing that was missing was black out curtains…which made for impossible naps for Emma! Next time we know to bring something for that. :) This is the only way she would nap…
We just happened to be there on my birthday, so I rang in the last year of my 20's with beautiful weather, the beach, family and a wonderful dinner out with Mike (thanks for babysitting, mom and dad!).

Emma LOVES the beach! We weren't sure what to expect since she hates the feel of grass on her feet, but she loves the sand and didn't even eat much of it. ;)

We also spent most of our time at the beach, but also walked around the Hotel Del. We just love that place! It feels like such a time warp there, like you're back in the 20's or 30's. We of course had to get watermelon sorbet, Emma loves it!

We also went to the park one evening and there was a jazz concert. We sat in the park and ate our grass-fed burgers (www.burgerlounge.com), listened to the music and enjoyed the amazing weather. Emma had her first ride on swings too!

While it was exhausting traveling with a baby (she did very well in the car though!), we'd love to do more traveling with Emma as she grows up. Traveling has shaped so much of my life and my view on things, we really want her to have that as well. And it makes for some great quality family time that we sometimes don't get while at home.
