we decided to go out of town for our last weekend before school. we planned a quick weekend getaway with jen and ray and their kids. we booked a hotel in san diego and got tickets for sea world.
i was so excited to go. we drove up on saturday and then went to sea world on sunday and drove home from there. we only got to stay one night but it was very fun. the hotel had a pool. we changed into our suits and went swimming right away after we checked in. the kids loved the hotel. mason said "this place is amazing," making me realize that my children are pretty deprived. we never stay at hotels, and this was not a super nice hotel like miles and i used to stay at. we all went out to dinner at a restaurant in the gas lamp district. it was cool. i liked walking around.
today we woke up early and went to sea world. the last time we went to sea world we only had mason so it has been a really long time. everyone was super excited. it is also jen's birthday so that added to the celebration.
mason wanted to go on a real roller coaster because his friend archer had been on one so uncle ray was nice enough to take him on manta. yikes! his first grown up roller coaster. he was so brave. i was actually too scared to take him on it myself. after it was over he was cute and said he would go on it again but maybe not right now.
connor's favorite ride was the sky buckets. they gave you a beautiful view of the bay. all the kids loved the sesame street section where they got to climb through rope mazes. they would have loved to spend all day there. we saw most of the shows. i liked the sea lion show the best because it is funny but they are all good.
it was such a great day. i really wish we could have stayed another night. i am sad tomorrow is school. i don't want our summer to end.
