Vacation at home!

Since Steve has some time till his next job begins he's had a couple of days off. It's been awesome. Yesterday we went on a bike ride with the kids around Mission Bay.





And today we went to Sea World...round two! We got there when it opened and didn't leave till 330pm! We let the boys skip naps and just went for it!
We saw close to everything there. We were able to catch the Sea lion, Dolphin and Shamu shows! we had a couple near-meltdowns toward the end, but nothing that a little popcorn and fruit punch couldn't cure.

Meeting Shamu


Elmo...a little freaky for Diego. Job LOVED him!

At the tide pools


Magnified Diego

Hunting in the Shark tunnel

Breaking for lunch before the Dolphin show


Bay of Play






At the Clydesdales

Job trying to sneak behind the chains for a closer look


SHAMU!!



Today was a day of firsts. Job and Diego's 1st time meeting Elmo, Big bird, seeing (or even hearing the name) Shamu, touching starfish and sea cucumbers, being on the bigscreen at a Show, wearing winter hats and tank tops, and getting completely soaked in the splash zone, and everyone going to bed an hour early
!Thanks for a great day Papa.
