San Diego

Since we went to San Diego for Tricia's baby shower, Shaun's Aunt Barb was nice enough to put us up for the weekend at her home outside San Diego and watch the girls for me while my mom and I went to the shower. The girls had so much fun playing with Aunt Barb, and Shaun's cousin DeAnne and her daughter Alex. Julianne got to go for a dip in the pool and was having a blast. We have a water baby on our hands!

She loved the spa too! She is still learning that she can't step off of anywhere she wants. She sank a few times!

We had a great weekend in San Diego. Shaun's cousin Matt and his wife Allison came over on Saturday with their little boy Graedy. I forgot to get my camera out for that (boo)! We had a nice time visiting everyone and it was very relaxing.
On Sunday we drove to Barb's home in Imperial since we were on our way to Arizona and stopped to have lunch with more of Shaun's extended family. We were able to see Shaun's Aunt Judy and Uncle Jim, Shaun's cousin Tricia and her husband J.R., Shaun's cousins Matt and Jeff and his cousin Josh's wife Sara (sorry you had to work Josh - we missed you)! We stayed and visited for a few hours and it was so nice to see everyone. When we arrived and I opened the car door to get Julianne out she said "it's too hot"! So funny. It was about 112 that day I think. She continued to say it the rest of the week when we were in Arizona (more on that trip next post).

Julianne got to go swimming again with DeAnne and Alex so she was happy. She only got to stay out for about 20 minutes because it was so hot and I was terrified that she would get sunburned. So, we put a shirt on her.
She soaked up every minute she was in the pool.
They tried to put a hat on her but true to form, she took it off. My girl hates hats.
Julianne loved Alex. All weekend she would say "where Alex go?", "wanna see Alex".
And by the end of the weekend, she was in love with Shaun's Aunt Barb. I don't blame her. She one of the sweetest people you could ever meet. So thoughtful and generous. We love you Barb! And DeAnne. And Alex. And all of you! Thank you for making us feel so welcome and for a great weekend!
