California Trip Day 6 - Thursday

On Thursday, we woke up (late, thank goodness) and headed down to San Diego.  We finally found a parking spot downtown and headed up to my sister Jennifer's apartment.  The girls loved her place - it is so cute, with lots of pink and sparkles.
 Jennifer surprised us with giving the girls matching heart glasses, kites, bubble wands, buckets, shovels, and sand molds.  They were so excited.  We headed up to Pacific Beach.  Our first stop was the Firehouse were we met her boyfriend Steve for lunch. (sorry, no pictures)  We really like him though.  He is so nice, was very attentive to my girls, and he and Jennifer are great together!

Then it was time to hit the beach!
 It was Kirsten's second time at the beach and Katie's first.  They both loved it!

 Jeremy had fun flying the kite and both girls even got a chance to do it.
 Kirsten loved the water and by the end of the day was soaked from head to toe.
 Katie preferred the sand and luckily Kirsten liked playing with her in it.

 After about two hours, Katie got tired.  She grabbed a beach towel, climbed into her stroller and put herself to sleep.
 During her nap, Jeremy and Kirsten completed the sand castle.
 And Jeremy taught Kirsten how to skip rock.
 In the afternoon, some clouds rolled in and it got a little chilly, so it was time to head out.  Jeremy thought that this would be the most effective way to get everything back to the car.
Kirsten was thrilled that we let her ride with her Aunt Jenny in her car that is way cooler than mine.
We headed to a frozen yogurt shop where we hung out for about an hour before heading back up to Orange County.
My sister put together an amazing video of our day together.

We had such an amazing day together.  It was definitely a highlight of our trip.  Kirsten had so much fun - she says she wants to live in San Diego when she grows up.  We love Jennifer so much and were so thrilled to be able to spend so much time with her!
