Escape... Twice in one month!

It's always wonderful to find respite from Yuma in the form of a weekend trip to nearby San Diego.

We lived in San Diego for 8 years, and we miss it dearly. We pretty much miss everything about it. 

Except for the traffic. Don't much miss that.

Of course, a visit to sunny San D would not be complete without a trip here: 

Hash House a go go... The Best. Breakfast. EVER.

Where I will indulge in one of these: 

Smores Mocha... Better than sex (no offense, honey)

I'm also excited to RUN!! I'm still in "light mileage post-marathon" mode, so I'm only scheduled to do 4 miles on Saturday and 8 on Sunday. And since we have a very special event happening on Sunday morning, I will have to wait until late morning to get my run on.

What, pray tell, is this special event?

Disclaimer: I swear I'm not psycho sport/stage mom. This just happened to work out for us. A couple of months ago, Evan asked me if we could find him a road race. He's definitely interested in running. I farted around online and happened to stumble across this event in San Diego and thought it would be fun. Since Mike is already there on military orders, why not drive over to meet him with the boys and make a weekend of it? And since we've done Sea World, Legoland, the Wild Animal Park and the Zoo a MILLION times already, lets do this instead.

I just don't want anyone to think I spend all my time fantasizing about, oh, I dunno....

Seriously, the coolest part of the 2008 Olympics...

Alright, alright. Shut it. I daydream about it a little, but it's just that: a fun daydream. What's most important to me is that my kiddos are happy and that they are having fun.

Summer Sanders says it best... 

"I enjoyed every bit of my swimming career. I think that's the most important advice — to enjoy what you do."

Amen, sister.


  1. I love it. The kiddos race sounds like a blast. Im having my boys run the Disney kids race and they are so so stoked. I mean you arent putting them in heels with lipstick and botox in the Miss lil miss Debbie of the non south sponsered by Aqua net--your inspiring their health! Awesome! How do your post marathon miles feel? How is your hip? And most importantly, can you send me that GD mocha? Like now? I am so turned on. Also sorry honey. But yeah- WAY better.

  2. Hash house a go yum. I wanted to go there when we went to Vegas!

    The kids will have a blast!

  3. Oh my!! This mocha looks sooooo Delicious!! And I get it...we all want our kids to be great. :) Ha! Love these pictures. ;)

  4. aww. those olympic mama boys are making me cry! ;-) that will totally be you!

  5. Ok, I have one thing to say: That definitely looks better than sex!!! We are definitely going there on the next trip to SD...I don't care what it takes.
