My oldest brother and I were talking in September during our commutes and decided that we should meet in San Diego for Thanksgiving to shake things up a bit. The idea quickly turned into reality - we found a home to stay in that slept all 9 of us comfortably (except for maybe Levi, but we're just preparing him for his mission) 50 yards off of the beach. We were able to cash in on my miles and hardly paid a dime to fly direct from DIA to the San Diego airport. We hit all of the popular attractions near by - USS Midway, Sea World, Mormon Battalion, Beach, and the San Diego LDS Temple (no pics). We also went north for a couple of days and had a blast at Disneyland and California Adventure Park. We also ran into Mitt Romney while attending the San Diego 7th Ward for sacrament meeting. The only missing piece of the trip was not having our Noah with us, but I guess we are in that stage of life when having us all together will be far and few between ; ). We certainly had a blast!
