San Diego OR BUST!

Tyler loved the Tigers! "Meow"
Tyler finally figuring out how the headphones work!

Andrew was so amazed by every little thing! It was so fun to watch him get so excited as he got to see so many new things!

We feel so fortunate to finally have taken this vacation that we planned last year~ and it was worth the wait! The boys had so much fun! Andrew is still talking about building sandcastles with Dad, and the water washing them away. We went to so many fun places and could not get over how gorgeous the area and all of its beaches are. Here's the short list of all the fun things that we did~ we went to SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park. We also spent some time down at San Diego bay and did a bay tour, boarded and had lunch on the USS Midway which is a Navy aircraft carrier with all kinds of fighter jets and military helicopters that you can walk right up to and even get in some of them. Andrew and I rode "The Coaster" commuter train from Carlsbad (where we stayed) to La Jolla, where Sean and Tyler picked us up. Andrew was very impressed because we got to go under a bridge, on a bridge, stop at a train station, and through a tunnel - all in one train ride! We loved everything about our trip (well, except for the night that Sean and I thought it would be a good idea to have seafood at The Fish Market on San Diego Bay - This was a terrible mistake and possibly could classify as one of the most embarrassing moments of our lives!!! And I am not exagerrating, the kids were terrible and drew a lot of attention - OOPS - lesson learned!) Otherwise we kept the dining pretty simple and kid friendly - which worked out much better! We stayed at an AWESOME condo which was big with two bedrooms and tons of fun stuff to do (Thanks to Sean's Dad and Linda for letting us use their RCI). Only one regret - I did not purchase a single pair of shoes for myself on this trip - oh well, better luck next time!
