California 2009
We had another great trip to California this year and we found something different to do every day this year from our trip last year. We arrived about 10:30 L.A. time, ate at In-N-Out Burger, and then checked in to our hotel. We decided it was the day for a quick trip down to San Diego, about an 1 1/2 away. The scenery was beautiful and since we went to the zoo last year, we went to Old Towne San Diego for some authentic atmosphere.

Old Towne was a quaint little village with homemade salsa, olive oil, desserts, and souvenirs. We ate a restaurant called Coyote Cantina that had amazing food. It was an open restaurant and we enjoyed the activities on the street and the awesome weather while we ate.

I loved this picture-the sky was beautiful and it was right by our table where we sat for the folk dancing.

This was one of Hugh's favorite parts while in San Diego because the music, costumes, and dancing were so unique. They did about 8 different dances, all with different traditional costumes and music. Houston clapped and danced along, it was awesome. After a LONG day, we made it back home about 11:30, which is really 1:30 to our bodies. We brought back 2 of our 3 souvenirs for family here-I'm so glad we got to experience and learn more about this culture.
It really was a fun day.
