NOLA

I try to get back to New Orleans as often as I can. I lived there from when I was two to when I left for college. It is always fun to get back to see friends and enjoy the unique history and architecture of the Big Easy! When I go back, it is usually … Continue reading NOLA

A Day in La Jolla

One area we wanted to spend more time in was La Jolla. I booked a kayak tour through Everyday California to explore the La Jolla Sea Caves.

We only had a little time to spend so we checked out the ski jump and let the kids experience the biathlon. We had an Olympic hopeful, Hannah, instruct the kids at the shooting … Continue reading Wishing I was still in Whistler…
