California!... Day 344 22OCT 09

We are in California! It was a long trip but we made it without any major problems. When we arrived at the San Diego airport it was 70 degrees and sunny! Perfect weather. Joshua's limo driver Rick was waiting for us at the bottom of the stairs and whisked us off to our wonderful hotel just up the hill from LEGOLAND.

The view is incredible, not only can we see LEGOLAND but the Pacific ocean as well. The boys wasted no time in checking out all of the grounds and have already spent some time in the pool.

For lunch we ate outside on the terrace overlooking the ocean. What wonderful California delicacy did Joshua order? Why a California grilled cheese sandwich of course.

This afternoon we drove down to La Jolla to see Seal Rock. The boys have never seen any of the following: A seal; the Pacific Ocean; a beach that includes cliffs; the sunset in California. The water is relatively cold but everyone got their feet in for a bit. We had a nice drive back up the coast to Carlsbad and then it was time to crash. We are all pretty tired from our travels and the boys fell asleep as their heads hit the pillows. In the morning we are off to LEGOLAND!!

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

You look as if that Limo were made just for you! I love you holding the champagne glass (full of water, I hope). And how cool to stick your feel in the Pacific Ocean. Is the California grilled cheese better than Pa's Lake Special? I doubt it.

Have fun, all of you. Fill all your nooks and crannies with glorious memories.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
