Weekend Trip to San Diego

Last weekend we went to San Diego with some friends. It was fun to get out of the heat if only for a few days. On Friday we went to the Beach. Teagan had not been since he was 16 months. Rayle had never been. Teagan had such a blast. He was running in and out of the waves. Rayle was totally freaked out about the waves. He had fun in the sand though. On Saturday we went to Sea World. They had fun in the Elmo Play Place. During the Shamu Show the boys were scared to get wet so they put their ponchos on before it ever started. We visited the bat rays and Teagan had so much fun jumping on the wall and touching them. We stayed there for at least 30 minutes because he did not want to leave. It was fun that he got so excited about it. After Sea World we had dinner in the our friends hotel room. Teagan, Spencer, and Scott crashed. We thought we could go and get some Ice Cream and Rayle would be asleep when we got back. Nope he kept Any company and thankfully she shared some ice cream with him. Rayle will make friends with anyone with food, especially ice cream! We had a great time but had to leave early on Sunday. Can't wait until next time!!!

Teagan looking at the Bat Rays.
We looked like tourist because Teagan had to check the map to make sure we were going in the right direction.
Rayle feel asleep against the stroller covers.
Another picture of Rayle sleeping. It must be nice being able to sleep any where and in any position.

At the Shamu Show.

I don't want to get wet! At the Shamu Show, Teagan did not want to get wet. The boys sat in the ponchos for like 15 minutes before the show ever started.

Teagan and Rayle running in the tubs.

Let's GO! These girls behind us kept telling the boys to put there arms up. This was before the ride started.I am ready for the ride. What a face! Daddy and Rayle on the Elmo Fish ride.

Looking at Shamu at the water level. A view from our hotel room.
The boys slept on a pull out couch. Of course I showed them they could crawl into the couch and hide. They had fun. Rayle throwing sand and I snapped a picture, too cute!
Rayle running at the ocean but he would run back towards the beach when the waves came.
Daddy dug a hole and covered Teagan up. He is actually laughing in this picture, but it looks like he is crying.
After being in the sand Teagan ran to the ocean to wash off. He laid down and let the waves wash off the sand.
Rayle saw Teagan in the hole and wanted to try too. He had sand everywhere.

HOW FUN! The kids looked like they really enjoyed it! ...Too bad we live so much farther away so the likeliness of going is slim...

Hurricane Ike did zero damage here. Unlike Houston and Galveston which are terribly hurting from it. It rained a little here and there and then the winds would pick up for a couple minutes and then die down--over and over again. I was getting bored with it. I was told to expect some crazy rain and, since I love rain, I was looking forward to it! But it wasn't as bad as it was expected to be (which is a relief to the people here).

Watching the news I see you'll be in the hundred this week! I'm so sorry. The humidity is really bad here. I sweat like a dog while putting ON my makeup (that could just be because I'm fat though).

Hope you guys are well!
