The Zoo and the Highlight

On our 3rd day in San Diego we wanted to take the girls to the beach. We didn't want to drive too far so we tried to go to Mission Bay. There was not one place to park anywhere and then when we did find a place we hadn't eaten or gotten any towels. We walked about 10 feet on the sand and then bagged it. There was LOTS of seaweed anyway. So, we went back to the hotel and went swimming in pool. It was a nice break from all the walking.

The next day we went to the San Diego Zoo. That Zoo is HUGE! We saw as many of the exhibits as we could. Some of them were on the tour bus. After walking all day we all needed to sit on the bus for a while. They also have a sky ride that the girls loved. We took that right at dusk and it was gorgeous!

Lexie got to do a Kangaroo jump. She played on this for a long time. She got really good at doing back flips. She couldn't figure out how to flip forward though.

Kellie and Lexie on a sculpture of a Cheetah. There were SO many people around at this exhibit that I didn't get a good picture.

Sea World was the highlight of our trip!
I hadn't been there since I was about 6, (I think) and Marc was 4 last time he went to Sea World. What a fun place to go! No, it can't be compared to Disney but it was really fun. Its amazing how they can get those animals to do the flips and spins and all that.

Marc and the girls at the Dolphin Show.

One of the reasons Sea World was the highlight is because Marc and Lexie got to interact with the Dolphins. I wanted to go too but Kellie was too young and of course we had Abbie with us. So, Marc and Lexie were the lucky ducks that got to do this.

I took this picture of them as they were walking down the ramp to the pools.
Sea World provided the wet suits and the footie's. They also had robes and towels for them to shower off after.

I also took this one. But see the guy to the left he and 2 other guys took the rest. Then you could buy the pictures they took. But they took great shots so we had to get them.

Do you think I have something to worry about?
Lexie told me after that she still had the taste in her mouth from kissing the dolphin.

They danced too.

Then they got to make them jump and spin.

This one was walking I think.

Day 2 of our Trip we decided to go to Disneyland.
We weren't going to go this time, but who can
resist being that close and not going?

Marc, Lexie, and Kellie on the Teacup ride.

The Girls in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle.
The park was getting ready for the fireworks.

Grandma Janie wanted a picture with the girls in this car.
She has one with my brothers kids too.

Lexie and Kellie taking a lunch break. I had to post this one because
most of the pictures I have of Kellie she is pulling a face.
Here she is just smiling cute. I had to prove she can do it.
We had a ton of fun at Disneyland and we are SO glad we went.
We are starting to plan for a trip in January where we just go to Disneyland.
I can't wait for January!

San Diego Trip Lego Land

I am finally getting these pictures from our trip up. Its taken me a while to get back into the swing of things. Well, that and the fact that school started this week. That always takes a while to re-adjust to after being kinda lazy all summer. I have decided that this is taking so long that I am going to do mulitple posts. There were lots of pictures to post and I don't have the time to sit and do it all at once. So this first post is just Lego Land.

Our first day was spent at Lego Land!
What a FUN place. We really enjoyed it.
And highly recommend going there.
Everything is made of Legos.

Yes this is a full size car. It was made of a million some odd Legos and it took a team 2 and a half months to build it. It said that it would take one person over a year and a half to do it.

Lexie and Kellie got their faces painted at Lego Land.
Both had to have dolphins. At least they were different colors.

Some of my favorites from Miniland. All the ones in here were made of the size of Legos that we all played with.
They were so fun to see. They made them look exactly like the real places and things.

Just some of the fun we had at Lego Land.

Ok I give!

Ok, ok I give! I will try this blogging thing. I will most likely just be posting pictures of the girls but I will give it a try.

The first Post will be all of our vacation pictures from San Diego. We spent the last week there and had a blast. Of course the day after we got home Lexie started 4th grade. Kellie starts pre-school after Labor day.

So here we go.
