We made it to San Diego, California!!!

We finally made it to San Diego, California!! This is Jeremy's third voluntary shipyard transfer this year (first was Georgia, second was Washington state). We had such a blast together in Washington state and are really looking forward to making memories here in California, too. The west coast is so beautiful! Our flights went well and we had no major glitches, which was a nice surprise, compared to our very "eventful" flights to and from Washington this summer. God is good! Jeremiah was very excited to see his daddy again!! It feels good to have all of us back together, as our little family of three. While we are here, the shipyard is paying for us to stay in a fully-furnished 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo, at a complex called Portofino, which also has a pool, hot tub, and fitness center. Our condo is a few hundred square feet bigger than our house back in VA, so it feels very roomy to us! We're just right across the street from Costco and Ikea, so of course we had to get a Costco membership!! So fun! We are thankful for the friends we have already made here. Our new friends, the McKinneys, are also here on a shipyard transfer from Portsmouth. Matt and Rebecca have a 2 1/2 year old son named Matthew, and so far the boys love playing together! We are looking forward to making many great memories with them, and also hoping to meet lots of other great friends along the way. My childhood friend, Britta Pearson, lives here, so it will be fun to reunite with her soon, too. As our Christmas presents to each other, we hope to purchase season passes to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo, and the Wild Life Park, so we can attend whenever we want to. All of those places, along with the gorgeous beaches, are just 8 miles away from where we are staying at Portofino! How cool! So far, we are loving it here!! More details and pics to come soon, so keep posted!

Looks very nice :0) That will be awesome to have season passes to all those fun places. I really enjoyed the zoo and wild animal park when I visited San Diego.
