San Diego Trip

Almost 2 weeks ago we took the boys up to San Diego to go see Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. We had such a great time. The boys did so good traveling and they were both so happy to see all the animals and sea creatures. Hopefully this slide show will work and you'll be able to see the pictures!

We stayed for 3 days and had the time of our lives. The first day we went to the zoo and saw loads of animals. The boys had their favorites like the monkeys, tigers, gorillas and elephants. We then took off to Sea World to catch all the shows before it closed. We got to see Shamu, the Dolphins and Clyde & Seamore. The boys loved it. I have a funny story about the Dolphin show and I'll have to post that separate.

The next day we went to Mission Beach before Sea World opened up again. This was such a fun experience with our kids. They both LOVED the beach. Even though it was freezing cold, they would still run full speed to the water. We were planning on going to Sea World directly after the beach so we had to keep them from getting too wet, plus we didnt have any swimsuits! But they both loved how the waves would crash into the sand and loved the feeling of the cold water sweep up on their feet. What bliss! Ah, the joys of childhood!

Well, after the beach we went to Sea World and saw all the exhibits like Sharks Cove, Penguins, Polar Bears, etc. We also saw a new show called Pets Rule and it was great. There were tons of dogs, cats, birds and even a pig. The boys loved this one, especially because we had front row seats!

Overall, this trip was so fun and was especially fun to share with our kids. We can't wait to take them back to the beach and this time let them dive into the water!
