They had a lot of rides that the kids really enjoyed. I went on a lot with Riley and I can say for a fact that he had a great time.
Here are a few of the really cool miniatures. They are all made out of Legos. There was a huge Einstein's head made out of 1.2 million legos. I didn't get a picture of it of course.
This one was my favorite. The sheep in the barn actually move their heads up and down.
When we were done at the tide pools we stopped at Point Loma. Here are a couple of the amazing views we saw.
We packed up the boys and drove to Mission Beach to play in the sand. The boys thought they would get to swim in the ocean but it was FREEZING. So they settled for playing in the sand.
This is what happens when you sit in the hole that was made digging up the sand for the sand castle. Dad, Riley and Grandma fill it in with you in it.
We played in the sand for a few hours once we were covered in sand from head to toe we headed home. It was another great day in San Diego.
We spent the rest of the day checking out the other animals, going on the rides and playing in the huge nets and the water. By the end of the day we were all wore out and ready to rest our tired feet. But it was worth every minute.
And here is the front half of the seal. I couldn't get it all in one picture.
I won't bore you with a lot of pictures of what we saw out in the harbor. We did get to see some of the Navy's trainers working with a seal. I will show you one picture of the sea lions that lay on the bait boxes to work on their tans. The tour guide said this one was posturing to show us he was hot stuff.
If you have the chance you should check this out. We all enjoyed it.
When we got on board they gave everyone except Riley (he was to young) a set of head phones and a hand held guide. Michael and Riley went off on their own tour and Roxanne and I took the other 2 and did the self guided audio tour. It was pretty impressive.
Conner didn't really fit but he had to have his picture taken in this seat anyway.
There were retired planes and helicopters on the Midway. If I had not had dead batteries in my camera I probable would have had to take a picture of these two boys in front of each and every one. I doubt Grandma would have wanted to be in everyone.
After we finished the Midway tour we took the boys to the San Diego Zoo. I didn't get any good pictures of the boys but I did get some of the animals. Here is my favorite. They are so cute even when they sleep.
We had a great spring break, we were all glad to get home to our own beds. The next day we woke up to this yuck. I want someone to bring back spring. Please?
