We had such a great trip to San Diego. Between the flight and being away from home for 8 days, I was a bit nervous about how it would all go down. Turns out, I had nothing to be worried about! Kason did fabulously especially considering the late bed times and shortened naps. Duane made the comment several times about how happy Kason was even with very little sleep. I will say it was a lot easier having my parents and sister with us. My sister was a life saver on the plane and my parents entertained Kason multiple times throughout the trip so that Duane and I could have a break. I loved spending time with them and I know Kason did too. So many fun memories!
So that this post doesnt' have 75 photos in it, I thought I'd break our trip down into a couple of posts. I know a lot of you aren't interested in what we did, but the main point of this (and all) of my posts are for memory sake. There are still a lot of photos in this post. You have been warned!
We flew out on Saturday and Kason did pretty well. The first flight from Indy to Phoenix he only slept an hour (out of 4 hours) so that was a bit rough. The airpot in Phoenix had lots of moving sidewalks and Kason loved them! He entertained himself for about an hour of our layover. We got to San Diego at 10:30 (7:30 CA time). By the time we got our bags, rental car, and got to the hotel, it was 12:30 am. Kason didn't fall asleep ONCE! Needless to say, his sleep schedule was a bit off and he slept with mom and dad the first night in the hotel. :)
Our first day was spent at La Jolla also known as the most beautiful beach EVER! Kason loved the sand and surprisingly the freezing cold Pacific Ocean. He played for hours and was a tired baby by the end of the day!
On Monday we headed to Sea World. I just love this place. I think the Shamu show is so cool and puts any dolphin show to shame. Kason got to touch the sting rays and starfish and thought that was pretty cool. He ended up falling asleep for last hour of our visit, but still had fun! That night we went to my parent's friends' home for an awesome Mexican meal. I didn't take in photos but it was so fun and so yummy!
Tuesday we went to breakfast in Pacific Beach at a restaurant called Kona's. There was a long line but the food was SO worth it! Kason inhaled about 3 pancakes and loves throwing food to the birds. After breakfast, Duane, my sister and dad put on their wet suits and headed for the ocean. My dad was quite the surfer when he lived in San Diego, so he offered to teach Duane. I think Duane enjoyed it, but will stick to golf. :) Jill has surfed before and is pretty much a pro...:). Kason and I walked the boardwalk with my mom and watched the surfing action. That evening we went to downtown San Diego to a little shopping area called Sea Port Village. We had dinner, shopped, and road the carousel. So much fun!
Whoo! It feels good to get those photos blogged! Now, on to editing the rest and blogging about the last few days of our trip. :)
