a day in san diego

we visited san diego, california on wednesday. i do love that place. i especially love the pretty lds temple there, which we got to visit. unfortunately, the temple is under construction right now. but it was still beautiful to me.what the temple looks like right now--- and what it looks like usually [2nd photo via]
i had to get a shot of ben and dave (dad) because they look so cute in their bow ties. dave is the ultimate bow tie man (ben doesn't remember ever seeing him in a regular tie).
we also got to visit the mormon battalion visitors center--- where we got all educated about some of our peeps--- mormons who marched (during the mexican-american war) from iowa to san diego and eventually helped build san diego. we were all feeling proud. read more about it here.
and pinkberry. yep.
and well a ben family trip wouldn't be complete without a baseball game. the ben fam does love sports, but especially loves a good baseball game.

lovely family outing.

and lovely friday. happy day to all.

I definitely went to the Mormon battallian vc as well when I was there a month ago. Wasn't it great how they talked to the portraits? haha, a little much for me but I loved mining for gold.
