Our Day at Balboa Park

I took Tessa to Balboa Park today just to get out of the house and enjoy the beautiful weather! We spent several hours walking around and taking pictures. I took her to the Timken Museum of Art since it has free admission. I held her in her Ergo so she could look at the pictures. She really seemed to enjoy looking at them! We only got to see half of the museum because she started to get hungry. I told her as much as I could about each painting or piece of art to develop that little growing brain of hers!

Afterward, we got out the picnic blanket and relaxed on the lawn outside of the Botanical Building. There was a man playing the sax, so we enjoyed the live music while we hung out. Tessa rolled over from her back to her tummy and spent some tummy time by her own will! She usually HATES tummy time, but she didn’t fuss a bit! When she was done, she rolled herself back over! She makes me so proud, even though she rolled partially off our blanket!
As you can see, she's a drool monster!

While we were in Balboa Park, I wanted to take pictures of some of the significant places in the park. There are so many beautiful spots, and with it being just the two of us, the pictures are mostly of Tessa in her stroller! That’s OK. We have plenty of future trips to Balboa Park ahead of us!

Fountain in front of the Natural History Museum
• I take a picture of my class at this fountain every year, and since Tessa is my only student this year, I decided to get a picture of her!

The Prado and Organ Pavilion
• Ryan and I celebrated our 6 month dating anniversary here. We have pictures of each of us at the pavilion from that day as well as some of our Save the Date pictures. I think it is one of the most beautiful structures in all of San Diego!
