A full weekend of San Juan Capistrano.

Gavin and I adore San Juan Capistrano.  We attend mass at Mission Parish and often eat brunch in one of the nearby restaurants.  We loved the theater when we visited, and even got a kick out of Swallows Inn.  I like the history, the architecture, pretty much everything about the little mission town.

This weekend we spent pretty much all weekend in San Juan.  In fact, we made 4 total trips!

First, we attended a Haiti relief Charity event at J Serra High School.  Gavin and I were both really impressed with the school.  Gavin couldn't believe they had Tennis Courts, I couldn't believe they didn't have barbed wire or metal detectors!   The tournament was interesting.  We both had fun.  After I busted, I went a little crazy on the silent auctions.  I'd rather not disclose all the items we brought home!

Much of this came home with us...
Casino Action!

You don't mess with this guy.
Sunday morning, we attended our regular mass.  A bit later, I meet with a new sponsor for my RCIA/conversion.  Looking forward to eventually joining the Church!  Sadly, I don't have any pictures of our church, I will work on that in the near future.  In the meantime, I have a picture of the Old Church in the Mission.

My final trip to San Juan was with the lovely Miss Alyssa for some orange picking.  It's always fun with Alyssa.  Plus, I got a little mini tour of San Juan along the way.

So overall a wonderful weekend.  I think I should spend more weekend in San Juan.
