At the beginning of February Trevor and I really wanted to plan a little getaway before the baby comes. Having a nursing baby means no traveling just the two of us for quite awhile...so we wanted to take advantage of the time we had before I got too far along. We almost went back to Hawaii and then I flip flopped a zillion times about just making it a family trip (you should hear the grief I get from my kids about not taking them!) and then trying to decide if we should go for an entire week or just a long weekend.
Anyway, ultimately we decided on a long weekend somewhere fairly close over my birthday weekend in March.
(And SO glad we did because at the time we didn't know our trip would be 2 weeks prior to selling our house and moving into a new one...yikes! More on that later... I have been hesitant to post the news before it is done deal...but yes, we got an unexpected offer on our home after being listed for 3 weeks, put an offer in another house 6 days later.... chaos and paperwork the last few weeks ...closed on sale of our current house today and on the new one hopefully by the end of the week!!)
Because we left early on my birthday, the kids made me a cake the night before we left with my mom (who came to the amazing rescue of watching the kids for the weekend AND my sister's kids while my sister and BIL got away for a pre-baby getaway too! Yes, my mom handled 5 kids for 4 days...yikes!! She is super woman!)
So we went to Coronado in San Diego. It is sometimes called Coronado Island, but it is really a peninsula...just a few miles outside of downtown San Diego. Beautiful, warm, and relaxing...just what we needed!
