Last summer, about three months after our third child was born, we packed up the minivan and did the 8-hour drive from Rocklin to Carlsbad. We love staying at the Carlsbad Inn during the summer, since it's right on the beach. It was a little cloudy and cool when we got there, but our older kids, Jeremiah (5) and Penelope (4) were so excited when we got to the beach, that they went right into the water - with their jackets still on! The weather got warmer during the week, and we had some great beach days. We also went to Legoland for the first time, visited with some friends and family in San Diego, and ate at some great restaurants. The resort was doing major construction on the ground floor of the Elm building, so it was pretty noisy during the day, but I can't wait to see the renovated rooms next time we go! The resort shows movies on the lawn at night during the week, and we watched some of it from our balcony. Here's some photos from our trip below. Please call or email me if I can help you buy or sell your timeshare at the Carlsbad Inn.
