LEGOS AND LEGACIES

Greetings - I found myself in San Diego on a fun adventure at Legoland and the beach with the family last week. I had to share a couple photos as we had a great vacation.

MUD SEASON

Greetings - We have officially entered the off season, but there are still plenty of fun events and activities in and around town to enjoy.

The golf courses [...]
