Before Romney's conference, we spent a few days in La Jolla. The weather was too chilly to really enjoy, but we wandered the charming streets, ate plenty of delicious food and even saw a movie. We spent some quality time with Romney's brother John and his wife Jodie and their 4 darling kids. We also took some time to visit my dad's sister Kristy and her daughter Kim.
We spent one evening in San Diego. It was really fun walking around the Gas Lantern District. One of our favorite things we saw was the Padres Baseball Stadium, PETCO Park. It was truly breathtaking. It sits right in the middle of the city and an open park area in outfield allows people to walk right up and look into the baseball field. We both loved it.
That night we ate a yummy seafood dinner at The Fish Market. The restaurant sits right on the water and we had a nice view of the Navy Warship USS Vinson. To commemorate Veteran's Day, Michigan State University and North Carolina basketball teams played a game on the flight deck. (This was also the ship that took Osama bin Laden's body to sea for burial). President Obama was watching the game so secret service was everywhere. It was cool.
