San Diego

We were so happy to have some visitors for a couple weeks.  Taylor came to visit for a week and then Terry and Debie flew down to stay for another week.  We stayed here for a couple days then headed over to San Diego.  We have never really been on a trip as a family so we were pretty excited.  The first afternoon we got there we went to Joe’s Crab Shack.  I have always wanted to go there and it was yummy.  The next day we went to Sea World.  We had been telling Jacoby about Sea World for a long time and he was so anxious to go.  I haven’t been since I was about six but I still remembered the shows.  They were just as amazing as I remembered with these huge killer whales and dolphins jumping out of the water and splashing the audience.  Jacoby was so good during the shows.  The weather was perfect and a little overcast so we were able to stay all day and not get too worn out.  Jacoby really liked the few rides and toys they had too.  Taylor even got to swim with the dolphins and feed them and do a few tricks.  It was really fun to watch.  We got Jacoby a little killer whale animal to take home that I will have to post a picture of.  It was fun because that is the same thing I got when I came to Sea World.  Jacoby was just the right age to take him and we had a blast. 

The next day we grabbed some donuts and went to the beach to eat breakfast.  It was so beautiful.  We didn’t wear our swimming suits because it was still pretty cold, but we splashed around in the water and found sea shells.  Then we went to find the San Diego Temple.  It was so beautiful; I have always wanted to see it. Later we went to the Braves game.  Tyler has been wanting to go to one of their games for a long time.  When they were playing here it happened to be finals week!! Are you kidding me? He felt pretty bad, so I’m glad we were able to come over to San Diego to watch them play.  Taylor, Terry, Tyler, and I all went and Debie watched Jacoby at the hotel.  It was a lot of fun and Tyler got us some sweet seats!  Unfortunately they lost by quite a bit, but we still had a good time. 

The next day we did a little shopping and made the drive home.  We had such a good time with Tyler’s family.  We are so happy to have people come visit so come on down everyone!! Smile 

Happy 4th of July!  I’m really missing home right now.  It is WAY too hot here for me!

They were finishing up the Sesame Street area when we were there last. I heard it was great. What did you think of it? Did Jacoby like it?
