(the sisters, my mom and aunt denice)after the event we enjoyed a picnic lunch on the balboa park grounds, then visited the san diego art institute gallery to see one of karen's paintings on exhibit.
(the ladies: monika, julie, mom, karen and denice...i'm behind the camera)
next on our list... extraordinary desserts. we each had something totally decadent. if you haven't been, this is a must stop location on 5th street. i had the triple chocolate mouse cake; it was divine. and does anything you eat get prettier than this?
a few of us stayed the night at the westin gaslamp and ventured out for a delicious italian dinner. the following day we ate breakfast, took a walk to the bay and then took the coastal drive home. all-in-all it was a fabulous time. i am already looking forward to next year.
