Steve had a conference in San Diego last week so we decided to all take a vacation.
While Steve was busy learning about...well...who knows what, the kids and I spent time hanging out at the beach,
hanging out with the surfers,
digging and getting dirty. We also did a little shopping, of course. Well, since we didn't pack any shirts for Miranda, we had to.
Tuesday, the Stimpsons met us and we all stayed at this cute little house.
Bedtime was exciting!
Chillin' with Shamu at Sea World
At the beach, Collin surrounded the hole they were digging with sea weed to protect it from the waves...nice.
Here's what Miranda liked best about the SD Zoo (above).
Some highlights from the trip:
Date and Cactus Milkshakes in Dateland, AZ
Buying new shoes and boots (for Karen)
Eating at the Fish Market (restaurant)
Trying out tons of balsalmic vinegar and oil flavors at the oil & vinegar shop
The Dolphin Show at Sea World
Mitchell and Meghan eating ramen noodles at every meal
The African Tram at Safari Park
Playing Imagine Iff with Suzie & Michael
Mitchell giving Elmo high-5 at Sea World
Goat cheese, spinich and mushroom pizza
The kids playing and playing and playing
So glad we got to get away and to spend time with S&M before their big move!
