San Diego ABCs

One of the benefits we enjoy as gov’t employees is a trip home during our tour. In State Department lingo it’s known as R&R. We took our R&R a few weeks ago. We decided to go to San Diego to kick it off before heading to Utah to spend times with our families. We had a great time in San Diego enjoying the smooth sidewalks, good food, and nice weather. We even needed sweaters and jackets! The major highlights included the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and the USS Midway Museum. Here is a little summary.

A is for Allie (obviously)

We spent a day at the USS Midway Museum. Allie spent most of that day in the carrier because there are tons of stairs and small spaces. It was really interesting!
