San Diego! Go Shamu.

Yes, we made a 5 day trip to San Diego.

We started off thinking of driving... yes, imagine, 8 hours of car time with two boys, and three adults (my mom included). So, just 5 days before the trip, I decided to that we should fly instead of drive!

The trip was planned with two other families, Ethan and Daran's. Their boys are the same age as Ryan, which made it super fun for the boys.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom, hotel/suite and the boys had a blast!

TV was of course part of their fun and they always came up with new things to play with. From pillows to blankets to tables...
Since meals would have been difficult with 7 adults and 4 kids, we decided that meals should be at home for the most part. So, the guys made a trip to Costco and bought all the stuff.. and we made meals..:)

We got a chance to go to Seaworld. The weather was perfect.
I figured out how hard it was to bring out the camera when we are watching two kids in a themepark! So, pictures were limited.....

Such a cute pic of Dylan giving Shamu a kiss..

I also learned that theme parks are tough with kids!! Dylan wanted to be carried all the time, and towards the end, the kids were getting grumpy and would not even take pictures. We also did not get a chance to see parts of the park...
We did get to see Shamu, sit on a round-a-bout airplane, and watch the seals..
Next stop, we went to Legoland.

The kids definitely had more fun here as they got a chance to sit on many rides.
Ryan actually got a chance to sit on the his first ever Roller Coaster and he says " I love it, and I am not scared" :D
And of course, the guys had to play poker on one of the nights and they sure drank a lot of beer!

My favourite part of the trip.... just the time spent the kids! It was so nice to have Dylan stick next to me all the time and gave me a chance to carry him all the time. And of course, hanging out with my chatty Ryan. It was a superb 5 days.:)
Till our next family trip.
