a weekend of seals and cupcakes

over the weekend mom, dad, mike and i went to san diego to visit heidi, logan and afton. we left friday after work and got there about midnight. logan was pretty bummed because he was scheduled to work the entire weekend and wouldn't be able to hang out. as luck would have it, he found a way of getting out of work. logan came down with the flu. poor logan, he ended up sitting at home all weekend, well, more like lying in bed all weekend trying to keep fluids down. luckily, no one else caught it.
saturday morning my dad headed up to newport beach to go over a case he's going to be trying soon, but heidi, mike, mom, afton and i headed to la jolla to take a walk on the beach and see the ocean. the weather was amazing. the forecast predicted rain . . . i'm very glad they were wrong.




for those of you who haven't been to la jolla, they have this fantastic little beach where seals congregate. we caught them in the middle of the day when they were all sprawled out basking in the sun.




afton is so adorable. she's really developing a personality. she doesn't like it when you talk to other people while you're holding her, or to sit down while you're holding here. if she's mad she doesn't want anyone to talk to her. it's hysterical.


i mentioned my dad ran up to newport beach for most of saturday, so he missed out on the beach outing. but he was the real champ of the weekend, because on his way back down he stopped at wonderland bakery and picked up chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.


my friends. if you are ever in newport beach . . . GO TO WONDERLAND BAKERY. their cupcakes are a dream. and it looks like a fairy princess wonderland inside. i miss them ever so much now that i don't live there anymore.

it was so nice to escape for a weekend. i know it's going to become almost impossible to get away over the next few months with work and school and relief society, so i'm glad we took the opportunity.

Hey, next time you are down in San Diego give us a call or an email and let us know, we would love to see you. In fact plan a trip down and stay with us, we would love it! We haven't yet made it to La Jolla, we have driven through but never got out and explored, hopefully we will soon! It is fun to hear what you are up to!
