During the stay-at-home orders, I have still been traveling safely, and one of my favorite destinations has been the Welk Resorts San Diego. The family-owned resort puts families first. My favorite feature was that my family was able to drive right up to the front door of our luxurious, and spacious, villa. There was no elevator or busy lobby was making me feel comfortable from the moment that I arrived. In fact, there was drive thru check-in, making the check-in process seamless. My second favorite feature is that families need to make reservations for the pools to ensure there is no overcrowding. Rooms The room that we stayed in was a two-bedroom villa. There was plenty of room for my large family to feel comfortable. There is also a kitchen that is fully stocked with dishes, plates, and everything your family will need to prepare meals (food not included).

The first thing that my boys did was to watch the trailer for the film. From that moment on, they could not wait to attend.

You can imagine his sadness when he called me an hour into school to tell me that he fell into a puddle of mud, and needed me to bring him a change of clothes. Thankfully, he had a large variety of clothes in his closet, and I was able to bring him something cute to change into at school that he could also wear to the premiere.
