Making a Splash










 I was going to make today a "lazy, lets wear pajamas all day" kind of day but then after watching 2 movies and realizing it was still only 9:30am--I thought: This is going to be a loooooong day if we just sit around. The kids were starting to get restless, so I said: "Put on your swimsuit. We are headed to the splash pad." We picked up Sonic grilled cheese sandwiches and watermelon slushes on the way. I was able to wear the kids out, feed them lunch, and kill a few hours. 

The kids rested for a bit when we got home and I was thankful I made the decision to leave the house.  

We are going to Kurt and Sara's tomorrow for a barbecue and then back over there on Tuesday for the 4th. Geri is in town and I can't wait to see her!

San Diego Day Three














 On day three, we went to breakfast at The Firehouse (again). We love that place! And we were supposed to have a quick swim and then drive home but all of us decided that we needed another day/night in San Diego. So we headed straight back to the hotel and were hoping and praying they had room for us for one more night. Get this? There were exactly two rooms available. We knew it was a sign that we had to stay at least one more day. 

We spent the rest of the day at the beach, eating (and drinking) at The Shore Club, and swimming at the hotel pool. We ate dinner at a really cool restaurant (can't remember for the life of me what it was called), and picked up ice cream sandwiches for the kids on the walk home. 

We crashed out early, had breakfast the next morning, and headed back home. It was such a fun trip and we have decided to make it an annual tradition to come back here every summer. :)

San Diego Day Two















 We started day two by eating breakfast at The Firehouse and then headed straight to the beach. The kids built some sandcastles, played in the water, and then buried each other in the sand. After we were tired of that, we headed to the hotel pool where the kids spent the rest of the afternoon. That night, we ate dinner at a place called Jrdn. It was super fancy (probably not the best place to take kids). Jackson fell asleep on Kyle's lap the entire dinner, Khloe threw up her milk, and McCartney peed all over my dress. Perfect place to do those things, kids. Ha. That always seems to be the way the cookie crumbles. We scarfed down our food and hightailed it out of there before we got ANY more dirty looks. We spent the rest of the night eating ice-cream and watching movies in the hotel room. The kids were so wiped out and slept like champs.
