Cross Country Road Trip | San Diego

We made it to our final destination, San Diego, California!  Over the course of a month we drove 4,000 miles through 14 states.  Starting in Virgina, we went through Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California.

Grandma Mickey and Grandpa Jon used to live in San Diego and it's one of our most favorite cities.  We visited Del Ray Beach and spent the entire day there boogie boarding.

I love Max's smile in this picture.

What is the point of visiting the beach if you don't get sand in every crevice of your body?

Noah LOVED the beach!  Luckily, we had no shark sightings:)

Sand head.

Zoe's favorite part was catching sand crabs. 

Being crammed in our car (7 people and 14 bags!) for a month wore on all of our nerves and there was bickering and even tears, but most of the time we enjoyed each others company.  We bonded and made unforgettable memories while visiting our beautiful country.  And spending our final day at the beach was perfect. 

Goodbye, San Diego and America!!  Wheels up to Kazakhstan in 1 day!
