San Diego Day 2…

Today we had a fun, relaxing day. The kid’s had a great time & were very well behaved!

We started the morning out by going back to Target to really take a “closer” look. We bought some clothes for the kid’s including some adorable t-shirts by Paul Frank, such a cute clothing line.

Than we went to this cheapo store, can’t remember the name…Big something to look for beach toys, no such luck & nothing exciting there than the exciting store we went to was a scrapbook store called Scrapbook Your Life! the owner was very friendly & helpful, great scrapbook store with some great stuff, very big & she was very helpful telling us where what to visit in San Diego. She was also telling me that there have been about 36 scrapbooking stores in Southern California that have closed down, that sucks!

After shopping it was off to the beaches, we went to Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma to look at tide pools, there wasn’t alot of them, we were hoping the kid’s could see some starfish but, nothing. Cabrillo National Monument is pretty amazing though, it’s gorgeous there.

Very cool tide pool.

Than it was off to Mission Beach, the kid’s wanted so badly to go swimming, play in the sand & collect some shells. It took us a while to find parking, some of these more “popular” beaches are just jammed pack, Mission Beach kind of reminds me a bit of Venice Beach with all the stores & vendors along the boardwalk. It was fun, I love to people watch!

For dinner we went to Phil’s BBQ which is right across from our hotel, last night we were heading off to a late dinner & we saw the line up at Phil’s BBQ, it was insane, I have never, ever seen anything like it, well today I found out it’s really good, so we got there around 4PM so we could beat the line up, well we still had to wait in line for about 25 minutes, so you line up, than you get inside the restaurant & place your order than you try to find a seat & than you have a beeper for when your food is ready, I’m not a fan of ribs but, my hubby is so he had ribs & I had chicken, my hubby said the ribs were really good, the kid’s said the sauce was spicey for them which I do agree with, we ordered way to much food, we could have shared 2 meals but, we have leftovers for tomorrow so that’s OK. I just couldn’t believe how busy this restaurant is & it’s all day & night.
