JDubbs and I have some pretty great memories at the Hotel Del Coronado. Here we are on Valentine's Day, 2006, just two crazy kids in love. Little did I know, he was about to propose to me about thirty minutes later!  The last time that ring finger would be so naked!

Flash forward four years and four days later, and we were back at the Del, this time with Jax in tow and Baby E in belly. We had a wonderful day, weather-wise, and we chose to spend our last hours in San Diego in Coronado, bringing Jax back to where it all began.

We stripped Jax down and let him run amok in the sand, hoping to tire him out before our red-eye flight that night. The sun, sand, and surf were definitely enough to exhaust the poor little guy--but it was still a rough evening. All afternoon he was exploring the beach and getting as wet as possible before we changed him into his pj's and stuck him in a carseat for eight+ hours.

What a phenomenal trip we had! Thanks to gorgeous weather, dear friends and family, and all that San Diego has to offer, we were able to enjoy a week together and just revel in Jax and all his glory before Em arrives.

I hope we can get back there again sometime, and keep Jax in touch with where he came from. Lord knows he's a beach boy at heart!
