Spring Vacay: The Welk Resort in Escondido

Welk & Cor 113

That’s right. As in Lawrence Welk! Turns out this place is not just for the elderly. :)

It was a fun and relaxing family friendly resort. We would definitely do it again!

One of the highlights for the girls was having a fishing lake on property.

Faith caught a little perch.

She’s a natural… she can bait, cast, reel, and release, all by herself.

Here’s Grace’s catch one morning.

We’re a family of soup lovers so when Trip Advisor tells us about a hole in wall local spot that’s famous for their soup, we’re all over that!!

 

Welk & Cor 063

A big bowl of chicken soup with all the fixins’ (onions, cilantro, rice, and avocado). Yes, please!!

 

Welk & Cor 066

Nope, I didn’t enjoy mine at all.

 

Welk & Cor 068

Faith didn’t like hers either.

Grace polished off her soup while still enjoying the homemade tortillas.

One of the many perks of homeschooling is having the flexibility of going on vacation when everyone else isn’t. Turns out the week after Spring Break was a good time. Apparently, it was A LOT quieter around the resort, and thankfully, it was unusually HOT in San Diego. April can be hit or miss but we had temps in the high 90’s!

The Welk was a pleasant surprise. The villas were spacious and the full kitchens came in handy for breakfast and lunch.

Other highlights include: A weekly Famer’s Market at the resort, dinner with Morgan’s sister and her family, daily ping pong matches between Morgan and I, and lots of family time by the pool.

Our stay only lasted 3 days but Lord willing, we hope to be back! 

Good memories and LOTS of relaxing… just what we had hoped for!
