Day one in San Diego
First order of business, eat Mexican food from our favorite shop Cotijas. I got a bean burrito and fish rolled tacos, Special K carne asada. It was heaven on earth. The tortilla was soft and chewy, not heavy, dry and floury. Magical.
After lunch we visited with my granny, stopped by my momma's work to say hello and shopped for some essentials we couldn't pack like shaving cream and such.
In the evening we set up a time to have an open house-type dinner at Oggi's pizza in Santee. We invited both families to stop by, eat if they wished and say hello. I must tell you, it was the perfect set-up.
People trickled in so we got to chat with everyone. And as some left, some arrived so it was a perfect flow of people.
It was on the patio so our two families could be as loud as they wanted. It also gave us plenty of space to move around and sit with other people.
And finally, to our immense delight, there were non-partisan lines. Everyone interacted with one another which is not a strong suit for either side. And this picture proves it. :)
We met our new great-nephew for the first time and he stole the show! He's the happiest baby I've ever seen an I can't wait to spend more time with him.
All in all, it was the perfect first day. Got to see a lot of people and felt our time was of good use but not over-the-top scheduled. Looking forward to another day of nice weather and quality time with the ones we love.
