Kicking off the Holidays at the Hotel del Coronado

What Holiday Season in ‪San Diego‬ is complete without a visit to the Hotel del Coronado? So we crossed the bridge and met up with Nonno, Nanna, Zio Robert, Zia Marna, and Cugina Abigail for an afternoon of holiday cheer.

Suzie’s Farm’s Pumpkin Palooza 2014

To get in the Halloween spirit, Mama and I took Alessio to Suzie’s Farm’s Pumpkin Palooza for his first farm and his first pumpkin patch. He didn’t care that the fields were almost picked clean since he saw chickens, vines, costumed kids, sugar skulls and more. Can’t wait until next year when he will walk around the patch and pick his perfect pumpkin!

Our Annual Christmas Decorating Party for Two

For at least the past 5 years, Wife and I have spent the Friday evening after Thanksgiving enjoying a few holiday inspired drinks while we decked the halls (really just our living room). Below are a few pictures from the party for two (four if you include Killian and our house guest puppy Kona).

Party Hopping on the 4th

For the 4th of July, Wife and I began at the Lezack’s new place. After fixing their PS3-HDMI-Television problem (I know, I am a nerd), we played a new game called washers. Michelle (@mlezack) and I beat Jen (@beachJen81) and Dan with a score of 21 to something. After then watching a few more rounds, Wife and I headed north to visit Tom and his new apartment on the what I am calling Tom’s Harbor (it is more of a cove, but I like harbor better).

After finding a great parking space (close to Tom’s), we enjoyed the view from the balcony, a delicious crock pot dinner, hanging on the dock, and then some fireworks. While we did not see much of the official fireworks, the neighbors definitely made sure we saw some sparkles.

I have to give it to both our host, they have great party locations. The Lezacks have a wonderful backyard with a pool (unfortunately too cold this 4th) and jacuzzi, while Tom has a very vibrant spot on the water with a dock and some friendly neighbors. Looking forward to the Labor Day Party!
