San Diego {2011}

When we got word that John's best friend (Chris) was finally tying the knot,we knew we wouldn't miss his big day for anything. John and I hit the road at 3:45 am Saturday morning to ensure that we would make it to San Diego in time for their sealing in the San Diego Temple. I had never been to San Diego before. It was love at 1st sight for me. We stayed in Del Mar, right by Solana Beach. It was gorgeous, even in the rain.

Right as we were heading into the temple for their sealing, it started to rain. Boo that! When the bride and groom came out, it was pouring rain and the wind had picked up. It didn't dampen any ones spirits or Chris and Megan's love. The sealing was beautiful and the bride and groom looked wonderful. We are so happy for Chris and Megan.

After the sealing, we attended a hosted dinner at the Chart House. This restaurant was right on the shore. They had huge lights shining on the water. You could see the waves crashing in on the shore. It was awesome. We loved visiting with the Tates and the Yeamans. It has been way too long and we vowed to not let that much time pass before our next visit.

John and I headed back to the San Diego Temple so we could check it out in the sunshine. It was a beautiful morning...night and day from the evening before. I have a new favorite Temple. The San Diego Temple is absolutely breath looks like a castle. Who wouldn't wan to be married there?

The Tates hosted a breakfast at Chris's house on Sunday morning. It was so nice to have a few more hours to visit with friends before we hit the road to head home. John and Scott took Chris' M5 for a test drive...they both want new cars-haha. The boys had fun checking out all of the toys in the garage :-). Some things will never change.

We can't wait to head back to san Diego...with the boys in tow!
