After 17 hours of driving, 6 military checkpoints and a near mudslide, we finally made it to our friend’s house around 9:00 Tuesday night. Since we’ve gotten here, we’ve done nothing but go, go, go. A far different pace than we’ve grown accustomed to. This was supposed to be a quick trip but when we got here, we were greeted with a few pleasant surprises. Our good friends Isaac and Kelly and their two kids have been on a cross country trip, ending in CA before they fly out to Hawaii (their next duty station). They’re arriving today! One of my best friends from VA who I’ve missed terribly ever since we moved to CA was going to be in CA for work. She flew in today! So our original departure date of yesterday just wasn’t going to work. We extended our car rental and are planning on heading back Tuesday.
Also while we’re here, we ordered the new Pacific Mexico guide to help us with our indecisiveness on where to go next. I think we could seriously spend another year here, but we’re going to have to narrow it down to a few key stops. After we get back to Puerto Escondido, we’ll hang out a few days and then off to Mazatlan (we think).
I’m feeling very uninspired today but want to take advantage of the internet access we have for uploading pictures…so I’m inflicting a new rule. If I don’t have anything interesting to say, I won’t say anything at all J
Here are some pictures of our trip to San Diego… enjoy!

|I just thought this was pretty...and a sign of the rain to come.|
|The rain caused a lot of mud on one of the detours we had to take due to road construction. We almost got stuck!|
|Jake and his new buddy Kai. He finally found someone to play Star Wars with!|
|Double smackdown on Mr. Til! Guess who won?|
