Family Vacation Part 1


Our first ever Family vacation!! (that didnt include visiting family)
We went to San Diego with My sis-in-law and her family and my BFF and her family., It was great fun! all the kids played great together! & everything went smooth! :)
The first day was long!! I had to work the night before and we left at 7am, so it was a tough day with only a few hours of sleep. We drove 6 hours, checked into the hotel and headed for the beach! Here are a bunch of picture from the beach that day. Heather/Emily feel free to steal them by right clicking on them and copying them to your computer! :)


Chris dug a giant hole in the sand so all the kids could play in it! They had a blast helping him :)


Here are some pics of easton :)





Easton and Jay playing in the sand




Heather, Spencer and Mady :) Playing in the sun & Mady's super cute bikini!


Jay freeeezing on the beach after playing in the water


Logan LOVED the beach! He was running free and wild! He felt right at home :)




Riley's first time in the Ocean! He loved it, eventhough it was super cold we played and kicked around the seaweed, I wish we had more time :( but we will go back soon



I got 3 kites.. I have never flown a kite before! Its actually FUN!

Emily & Gracee





After the beach we went back to the hotel to get ready for a nice dinner! We went to the steakhouse right next to our hotel, it was expensive but really really really good! They make your salad right at your table! & they had the best augratin potatoes!.. The next day we got up early and went to SeaWorld! it was mine, Mike's and Riley's (Duh) first time to Seaworld! It was fun! Totally different then I expected though. Here are some pics from the day :)

This is close to the beginning of the day :) before the wetness, and the tiredness, and starving hunger kicks in :)

This is right before we left! My clothes were soaked! the clouds set in and it was windy and cold, Im sure my family was so excited to take a end of the day look like crap picture :) But the flowers in the back are pretty :)







We went on the roller coaster! It was soo much fun! I cant wait till Riley is big enough to go with me! He loved all the rides he could go on, he crued when they were over and said " go on again please!"

We sat in the SOAK ZONE at the Shamu show, We got a little wet, but I really thought the show would be longer :( I was a little sad it was so short, took longer to get in and out of the area, then the entire show


Riley was so cute in the hotel room! exploring everything, and he loved to climb and look at himself in the mirror




I have to share this picture of Logan, the morning we left, he was walking to the van and his pants fell down! :) It was so cute!
