San Diego, CA Trip In Photos

Last week, we made the 5.5 hour drive with our four kiddos to San Diego, CA to watch my youngest brother graduate from boot camp and become a Marine. I couldn’t be prouder of him, or any of my siblings really!

I wanted to share some memories from our trip all in photos.

We wish the trip could have been longer, but I am so glad we got to witness such a huge occasion for my baby brother:)

*Cheers to family, smiles, and beaches*

  1. I love the candidness of this post. Look at those happy little kiddos on the beach πŸ™‚ I used to live in San Diego and absolutely loved every moment of it. I’m now in LA where the weather is just a tad less perfect and the traffic is massively worse.

  2. Aw, so sweet! Glad you enjoyed the trip (and survived the card ride! We have a 4-hour drive to my parents’ house we do a few times a year and it’s hard enough with one toddler!).

  3. Great post! Cute pic of your little girl on the beach, so adorable! I haven’t been to San Diego yet, looks fun though. The pier reminds me of OceanCity MD! πŸ™‚

  5. Such wonderful pictures!!!! I wish I would have known you were in the area, I would have loved to meet up {I’m such a fan of yours!!} My brother just joined the Navy and I can’t wait to see him graduate in SD!
