San Diego

I have three favorite pizza places in the United States.

1. Cold Spring Pizza in Cold Spring, NY
2. Pino's in Phoenix, AZ
3. Luigi's at Mission Beach, San Diego, CA. Whenever we go to Mission Beach we eat at Luigi's. This pizza is HUGE! It costs $35 for one pizza and feeds a ton of people. It is delicious!

We went to San Diego for about 3 days and had such a wonderful, relaxing time! Our lives have been so busy that we haven't vacationed together since last summer. We went to the beach, the aquarium, saw some friends, and watched the sea lions. We also went to my favorite Target- the one with two floors. Brian, his dad, his brother and Jack rented a sailboat and had a great time. It was a great vacation and we didn't want to come home.

I love being a mom!

I've been reluctant to blog... with all of the weird things that can happen with the internet but on this Mother's Day I've been thinking about my boy, Jack.

Here are some of the things I love about Jackie:

1- He loves to learn, is smart and does so well in school.
2- He loves his family! (mom, dad, nana, pops, aunts, uncles, grandma's, grandpa's, cousins,... and don't forget Cissy)
3- He'll try any sport and is especially a great baseball player. He really concentrates, is quick to react, and encourages his team mates.
4- He likes to watch The Office with me. We laugh so much!
5- He is developing his taste in music. I love it when he hears a song and tells me it makes him feel good. He also keeps me up with all the new music.
6-He loves to beat me at Skipbo and Boggle.
7-He's so darn handsome!
8-He tells me he loves me.
9-He's super funny.
10- He's brave- he'll go on any ride at Knotts Berry Farm, etc... and isn't scared.
10-He is so excited to pass the sacrament.

He's just a great boy, and I am so blessed and lucky that he is in our family. I can't imagine life without out him. I never knew I could love so much!
