My mom was able to reserve some cottages on the beach in Coronado for a few days and all of my sisters and their families met up so we could spend some time together before Winter break came to an end! We had such a great time and it was hard to believe that we were hanging out at the beach in January - the weather was beautiful! Nothing beats
Christmas time in San Diego with our mid-70 degree temps!
The places we stayed in were literally right on the beach and the kids loved playing games in the sand and being by the water - collecting sea shells and chasing seagulls!
One of the best days was when The Sandcastle Man came to the beach. My parents hired him to spend three hours with the kids, teaching them how to properly build a sandcastle. He brought all the supplies and than we split them up into groups and they made their own sand creations.
The pictures don't even do justice for how cool their castles looked!
and than we walked to Hotel Del to see the lights!
The kids loved playing games together at night!
The adults got to go bike riding around the island and we had fun popping wheelies, no hands and basically acting like Goonies on bikes!
Coronado sure is beautiful!
The adults also snuck away the last night and went to a strip club - a steak strip club I might add - where you cook and grill your own meat!
We played telephone while we waited for the food....
We also took "couples" shots!
The food was amazing!
Thank you mom and dad for such an amazing trip!
I already wish we were back there soaking in the sun and relaxing together!
