San Diego, CA

We just got back from our vacation to San Diego. I decided I should be on the beach permanently. We had such a great time. It was Cart's first plane ride. He was very nervous at first. We actually told him we were getting on a bus because as we were loading the plane he started freaking out! But as soon as he realized we were flying he was fine. We were there for 5 days at our awesome hotel on Mission Bay. We went to the San Diego Zoo which is overwhelming. We walked through a retired battle ship. We all enjoyed the ship. Carter wanted his picture taken in every doorway! Our plans were to go to Lego Land but through some persuasion by Carter we went to DISNEY LAND!!! It was so magical to see it through Carter's eyes. He got to meet Pluto and Mickey. After he meet Mickey he was done and wanted to go back to the pool. The weather was much cooler than we expected Chris and Carter loved the cooler weather, I froze.

Carter LOVED the sand and water

This little worm was a lifesaver on the plane

4th of July

The 3rd of July was a wet one. It rained all day! I loved the rain but it meant that we missed the parade, fair on the square and the fireworks were canceled. We got to sit inside of Chris's office and watch the parade but it was not as interesting. Carter and his cousins lost interest and played jail. We left the square when the rain let up but by the time we walked to the car we were drenched!

Later that night we went to my Aunt Kim's to cookout and pop fireworks. I have never bought fireworks until this year. Carter and his Daddy spent $20 and that was enough for him. Carter was terrified of the black jacks but loved the sparklers.
