LOOONG weekend

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I hope you all had a great weekend. I am not posting anything crafty although I do have some stuff to show you. I just haven't had the time to get some good pictures.
My husband was able to get Friday thru Monday off. Since we haven't seen very much of what California has to offer we decided that since we have a 4-day weekend might as well take advantage of it, right?
Friday afternoon we drove down to San Diego. What should have taken about 3 hours took us 6. Oh my heavens, the traffic was just simply horrific. I wasn't a happy camper but my boys did wonderfully. Apparently we weren't the only ones with the idea to head to San Diego for the weekend. But the hotel keeper told my husband that there was a motocross show going on as well as an international rugby tournament. And we thought we were going at a time where it would be secluded.
So, we get to the hotel, get settled, go get some dinner and then come back to relax and get some sleep. Again, the boys are wonderfully behaved but we all stay up til about 11pm. That is not good when you have a full day ahead of you.

Luckily my boys were so excited to go to Sea World that it didn't matter. All of us have never been there before (technically I have but I was still in my mommy's tummy hehehe). It was an awesome experience and I would recommend it for ANYONE young or old. And young and old were all there that day. Again, who goes to Sea World on Valentine's Day? I guess a lot of people. The workers kept saying they were expecting a LOT of guests that day. That is fine though because for the most part everyone was very kind and courteous while we were there.
We got to see the dolphin show right off. Then we headed towards Shamu to get into that show. I gotta tell you, both of those shows are really awesome and very entertaining. I loved them both. What is great too is that Sea World honors the military and they had the military stand up before the Shamu show in honor of all they do for us. It was absolutely terrific.
From there we just went for place to place trying to get everything in. My boys got to feed some dolphins. That part is very pricey but so much fun for the kiddos. I would pay it again for them in a heartbeat. We did miss a few things but it was time to head home as we weren't sure how long it would take us to get back home after the long drive down. Seriously, if you get the opportunity to go, go, it was just awesome. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy. I will be back tomorrow with some eye candy.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

That sounds like such a fun trip! I was there about 10 years ago and would still like to go back. :o)
