With four days in a row, my weekend was a little longer than usual, and there was good reason for that: my mom was in town!
She flew into Los Angeles on Thursday morning, spent Thursday and Friday with my brother (who lives up there), and then on Saturday we met up for the Anaheim Angels vs the Boston Red Sox in Anaheim.
The game lasted a ridiculous 19 innings (and boo…the Sox lost), but we stayed 16 innings and headed back to San Diego (with my mom) around 11 pm. We also snuck down to about 3 rows behind the Angels’ dugout in inning 10. It’s the closest I’ve ever been and unfortunately, my phone was dead, but we were so close and it was so exciting.
Brunch at my favorite spot: Wonderland in Ocean Beach…
With HUGE pancakes and mimosas…
A walk down to Dog Beach to show my mom how amazing it is. She loved how happy all the dogs are, and I found some great seashells for her to take home.
We spent the rest of our afternoon at the San Diego Zoo. More on that coming soon…
I took my mom to Mission Beach for an hour or so, and then we headed back to her hotel and then my house to get ready for the Padres game.
We met up with Adam in Gaslamp, where we grabbed dinner at Southpaw Social Club (which we will definitely return to and I’ll write a review on soon). A few beers, a selection of appetizers and an entree later, we were ready for the game.
It was a really fun and exciting game, and the Padres won! I also ran into my friend who just moved here from the east coast, so that was pretty awesome too.
Took my mom back to Dog Beach (this time with Maeby)…
Stopped at Sunset Cliffs so she got one last ocean view, and then dropped her off at the airport.
Maeby was very sad, and so was I.
I’m excited to see her again in a couple of months when we go home for Thanksgiving.
How was your weekend?
