This last week we had a great vacation in San Diego. We rented a house for the week across the street from Mission Beach. It was nice to have a place big enough for everyone and a room for Will to sleep in. It was a fun relaxing vacation. One of the great things- Brian's parents took Will on the plane! So only 2 hours instead of 12 in a car. Brian, Alicia, John, and I drove in the grandparents van and meet up with Michelle, Paul, Gloria, and Will in sunny California. The drive there wasn't to bad, but isn't that how it always is? And then the drive back, way to long! But Will was lucky again and got to fly. That boy is spoiled, that makes 8 flights now.
I love the ocean! I love the ocean even more when it is warm enough to play in. Oregon just wasn't warm enough. I don't think I even got in while living there. Anyways, I thought for sure Will would love the water but he was a little afraid of the big waves but loved playing in the sand. On the bay side he got in and love the kayaks we rented. The next day we all had sore arms.
Sea World! Brian and I love Sea World. We went about 5 years ago and have wanted to go back ever since. We found a discount price and got Alicia and John in for Free! (Military discounts are awesome!) Will loved all the animals. He could have watched the Shamu and dolphin show all day.
Knott's Berry Farm was a blast. And lucky for us Gloria doesn't love roller coasters and she loves Will so we got to go on the rides and she went with Will on the Merry-go-round! There is a crazy roller coaster there that goes straight up then straight down and around and goes really really fast, I can't remember the name of it but I was glad John was there to go on it with Brian.
