San Diego Company Trip

(Hotel Del Coronado, Coronado Island, San Diego, CA)

Last night Eric and I arrived home from 4 days in San Diego with some of Eric's employees and their wives. Eric took some of his employees for a VA Pro Presidents Club trip to reward them for all their hard work. Not all the employees got to come only those who are full-time and who have been with the company for longer than 6 months. We all flew out on Friday evening to San Diego and checked into the Hotel Del Coronado www.hoteldel.com

The Hotel Del is historic and beautiful and has so many fun things to do.

Some of the highlights of the trip were

Group Dinners at 
1500 Ocean at the DEL

Going to ENO, an awesome Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Bar.
It was actually kind of funny like 12 of us went there late one night and they start telling us all the menu specialties and the tasting meu ect.and Eric says
"Before you start with the menu, we are all mormon but one of us, so we just want one third of your service, the cheese and chocolate"
The girl looked at us like..."um...ok ...this never happens"
But they made up a new just chocolate and cheese menu for us.
It was incredibly yummy and fun!

Dinner at the famous NOBU sushi bar at the Hard Rock

We had lots of time for pool, relaxing and spa treatments

We also had tons of fun riding in style everywhere. We had stretch SUV limos take us everywhere so all 20 of us could go everywhere together, instead of having to take like 10 taxis.

The guys went golfing at the PGA course La Costa

We went to the famous Crown Room Brunch at the Del, it was amazing, their was so much food, and sweets, and anything and everything you could eat.

On Saturday night we also had our company VA PRO dinner in a private room at the Hotel, it was a "white themed" party so everyone wore white and we had a big group shot taken by a photographer for a good souvenior from the trip. Everyone looked so nice. It was really fun. Eric also got to give out some awards for his top guys and other recognitions for some of the employees.

We spent time at the beach,the guys (and Amber) surfed and skim boarded. All us girls watched and relaxed on the beach...and took pictures.

Eric was a pretty impressive surfer, I mean none of the guys were doing anything more than "staying up" but it was still more than I could do.

Also one other fun thing we did but I have NO pics of (which I am so sad about) we all went dancing one night. It was hillarious. I have not been dancing since I was in school before I even met Eric, and most everyone wasn't exactly a "typical group" you would see out on the town dancing, but we did.
But, it was probably the most fun night. We were out at the Hard Rock for dinner and stayed to all hang out. It was so funny/fun. Eric and the guys were break dancing and were all hyper and crazy. It was so much fun and by far the most fun night!
