Weekend Trip To San Diego

This past weekend we made a trip to San Diego to watch my nephew, Aaron Sanchez, play in the AFLAC All American Baseball Game between the East and the West. We stayed at the Hilton Bayside on the 25th floor. The views were outstanding! We decided to have dinner at Fred's Mexican Cafe in the Gaslamp Quarter. My hubby and I shared a chicken/steak fajita plate and was it ever good! We walked back to the Hilton and sat around the pool chatting. Saturday we took a trip to Pt. Loma, a place a used to go ALOT when my husband was stationed in San Diego years ago. From the point, you can see all the ships entering and leaving the harbor. There were a few times I was surprised to see the ship my husband was on, the USS Bainbridge, coming in early. This ship has now been scrapped but it was impressive in it's day!
Saturday was the day I figured out the game was Sunday, not Saturday. Umm, yeah, how could I have missed THAT! But heck, we were having the time of our lives so why worry about that. We would just have to stay another day (in paradise!!!). Lynn and her husband had a dinner to attend so we ventured out on our own looking for a place for dinner. Ended up at an Olive Garden in the Grossmont center. The food was good but the Berry Sangria was THE BEST. I think I should have made that my dinner. HERE'S a recipe if you want to try your hand at making some.


Our plans for Sunday included a trip to the
94th Aero Squadron Restaurant for brunch. Hands down this is the happening place for brunch. The food and atmosphere were awesome. We had a couple of pilots in our presence and they were in 7th heaven. We arrived at Petco park around 3 in the afternoon to get good seats and were surprised by our niece, Carla and her son Zack. It was just amazing to me to see my nephew, Aaron Sanchez, playing ball at such a big park, but I think this is just the beginning of such events. He is in the top 40 High School players in United States!!! Be sure to check out the link for him above and fish around for all the others.....and remember that name 'cause he's going to be FAMOUS!!! The following are just a few of the pictures we took while vacationing.
