Happy Fourth

Ellen planned one of the best weekend trips. Since I had a four-day weekend, Ellen made plans for a short vacation in San Diego.

We started driving down late in the morning. I kept the speed down and just enjoyed the drive. We arrived in Kearny Mesa and kicked back for a few before hitting the swimming pool. We finished the evening with an awesome meal at The Butcher Shop and watching TV.

We got together with my friend Jeff (aka GodOBiscuits from redvsblue.com) and Melissa, a good friend and coworker from my workplace, to meet-up at Legoland.

It was amazing to see the level of detail in the sculptures . . . all done with legos!

It was also awesome to see Jeff and Melissa building with Legos. They are NOT just for kids!

We later all went down to Torrey Pines Gliderport to watch the paragliders and hanggliders soar around.

All this excitement was followed-up with some great Bar-B-Q from Phil's BBQ.

Ellen and spent the day by ourselves. We roamed around Balboa Park and spent some time in a few of the museums.

We decided to head back to Legoland since our passes were good for two days. We got to see a lot that we missed on the first pass. I even got a chance to go back to buy more Legos in bulk.

We stuck around for the fireworks as well.

We drove back early to beat the traffic and relaxed for the rest of the day.

What a perfect weekend!
