We don’t visit as often as we should, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an amazing place to be right about now. Summer in San Diego can be one of the most fun times of the year, with the weather close to perfect, the kids out of school, and so many activities and events going on throughout the area. Many people think of heading straight to the beach in the summer, but we suggest you check out one of the best kid friendly summer activities in San Diego.

This blog post will be short and sweet as I have just returned from a two week vacation and am incredibly jet lagged. Please forgive any rambling or misspellings, my brain is only functioning at half capacity. This summer flew by (as they all do) and I can hardly believe Labor Day is this weekend. Our family enjoyed every bit of the Chicago summer, passing time at over 100 little league games (not joking), visiting the zoo, catching fireflies, celebrating birthdays, eating our way through the state fair, and playing with our puppy. We made the most of our time in the sun.
