A little beachy

Our trip went as planned.

It was wonderful and perfect in almost every way possible. We didn't want to take any extra trips to any amusement park. We spent our days on the beach, shopping, walking around and eating. We celebrated my mom's birthday while we were out there. Happy 40th mom! :)

Big A on our way to Cali. Guess he should keep his eyes on the road, huh?

The D man always makes a mess of himself in some way or another.
Little A talked himself to sleep.
The boys on the hotel couch just as we got in.
Big A wasted no time in getting his board waxed and ready for the beach.
This is the ritual for Little A--dig a hole before the waves take it away.
Working on training the D man to look at the camera.
The sandiest surfer around.
My parents with Little A near seal beach.

Excited to see the seals.
This little one just climbed on the rock near us.
Mes parents. (sorry, the caption needed a French twist to it)
Oh D man....
We went to the Birch Aquarium later that day. It was located right near our hotel and we thought it would be something the kids would enjoy--and they did. Little A sat in through a presentation on Sharks and even raised his hand and contributed to the questions from the presenters.

I think this picture looks like those fake backgrounds for at-home aquariums.

Leaving the aquarium.

Beautiful mom by some beautiful flowers.
After the aquarium we took a stroll down the street from our hotel. We sat near this little park in the middle of this amazing neighborhood and enjoyed this view.
Me and the hubs!
The following day we were on our way to Coronado Island. It was overcast on our way there, but it was completely sunny and hot when we parked and started walking around.

We had some of the best ice cream I have ever tasted at Mootime Creamery.
Little A enjoying his scoop of mint with sprinkles.
The beach on Coronado Island was hot. I burned my feet as I tried to chase the D man.
Shopping along Orange Ave. after our meal at the Rhino Cafe.
The next day, we stopped by the Kobey Swap meet for some shopping and we came across these hilarious t-shirts called the "Sweaty Shirt." Big A loved these so much that he bought one for himself, but regrets that he didn't purchase more.

Big A posing near the headless mannequin where the skankiest outfit there was just snatched up by a very brave customer.
The D man chowing down on some Mexican food. His fave!

The boys at the bay.

We love to jump!
A square cupcake for my mom on her birthday from Cupcakes Squared which was oh-so-delicious!

It was the prefect treat to end our vacation.
