Sea World, Take 2

For our last full day, we really packed as much as we could into one day. The kids slept in (!), so we got a later start than usual. We headed back to Sea World for the day. I tried to get in to the penguin up-close activity, but it was sold out (I would […]

Work and Safari

Today started again with conference sessions for me, though not as early as Monday. I also wanted to take some time to explore the exhibit hall, so I was gone from about 10 until 2. After that, we went back to the hotel to regroup and feed Josie, and then we drove up to Escondido […]

Life’s A Beach

There weren’t any sessions I was very interested in for the morning, so we decided to start our day at the beach! After Mac finally finished his breakfast, we drove up to Mission Beach. We found a parking lot with space right near the beach. I looked at the signs several times to be sure […]

West Coast Has The Sunshine
