Alaska Vacation Overview – Vancouver Review

Vancouver Review Vancouver is Beautiful. I had heard that Vancouver was a beautiful city, but I didn’t realize how impressive it was. Even before the plane landed in Vancouver, I was in awe of what I saw. I was above snow covered mountaintops, and it was just beautiful. I hadn’t even started my trip, and […]

Alaska Vacation Review (Overview)

Last spring, I went on my first trip to Alaska. It started out with a 7-day cruise on the Coral Princess leaving out of Vancouver, and then we did a cruise tour that took us to Denali and Fairbanks. To say it was an incredible trip is just not enough. It was by far the […]

Amazing Pictures with the Nikon D60 dSLR

While on vacation, we absolutely love taking pictures of everything we see. Since we try to go on a few vacations a year, that can add up to a lot of pictures. About a month ago, we decided that we were finally going to get a dSLR. We had talked about it for quite a […]

Balboa Park – Fleet Science Center

We enjoyed driving through Balboa Park to get to the San Diego Zoo, so the next afternoon, before we went to the airport to go home, we decided to go back. It’s a really nice area to walk around, and they also have a TON of museums and gardens. We could have easily spend 2-3 […]

La Jolla, California

Our last morning in La Jolla, we were able to go walk around. It’s a really nice area, and there are a few blocks that have a lot of nice stores and galleries. We were even able to visit the Peter Lik Gallery, so we were happy. Within walking distance is also the La Jolla […]

SeaWorld, San Diego

SeaWorld was a really nice drive from La Jolla. It was quick and easy, and we passed some really nice areas on the way. We had a lot of fun that day, and got to see a lot of fish, penguins, dolphins, sharks, and more. While I knew it would be a fun day, I […]

Holiday Inn Express – La Jolla, California

This hotel was a real surprise – in a great way. We had stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last year, and had enjoyed it, so we expected a decent hotel. This hotel was a lot more than “decent”! The Holiday Inn Express La Jolla was really nice, and was a great surprise. To start […]

The Flower Fields – Amazing!

The Flower Fields were absolutely amazing. First let me say that they are only open for a few months out of the year – this year from March 1st through May 11th. They are less than 5 minutes from Legoland, in Carlsbad, California, so it was easy to stop there after we finished up at […]

Legoland – It’s Amazing What They Can Do with LEGOs

After we checked out of our hotel in Anaheim, we started towards San Diego. When we planned our trip, we knew that Legoland was on the way, and loved the idea of seeing all of the amazing LEGO creations…so we bought 2 tickets (actually, we technically got them for free…see how we did it.) It […]
