California Here We Come!

Hunter just passing some of the 1,693 miles that we traveled over the past five days. Hunter and Mayley were excellent passengers. It could not have gone any smoother!The trip started by staying in Primm, NV. The highlight was definately the monorail. We would just ride it back and forth between the casinos. As we crossed the Nevada/California border, we never saw a sign that said "Welcome to California" but once we saw this get-up we felt more than welcomed. Nothing like a purple motorcyle in the back of your car.

Hunter ate his first "In and Out" although the stickers were more of a hit than the hamburger itself. He will learn what is important in life as he gets older. Bryan could have eaten there every meal. We all loved going to coronado beach. The kids had a blast playing in the sand and in the water. The water was cold so we just got in up to our knees.


Sea World is awesome. The kids loved looking at all the animals, petting the dolphins, feeding the sea lions, looking at the manatee's and seeing a fish that looked like nemo and dory was also a highlight, and who could forget Shamu.


The San Diego Zoo was awesome. The animals are so close and you can see so many cool things. Our favorites were the gorillas, and the polar bears. The polar bears had just jumped into the water and were swimming around as we got to that exhibit. It was so cool to be just on the other side of the glass and have them swim past. They are huge.
