San Diego

My sisters and I took all of our kids and headed down to Mission Beach for a week's vacation. None of us had been before, so we didn't really know what to expect. We somewhat randomly picked a beach house off of vacationrentals.com and hoped for the best. We were pleasantly surprised as the house was situated right between the bay and the beach. All of us have little kids, so the bay was perfect for the smaller ones. The beach house was pretty cool and kept up so that it didn't look like a rental. They had so many amenities- bikes, boogie boards, tents, sand toys, DVDs, games... it was great. We really didn't have to bring anything! This was also my first occasion to go to Sea World and it was great! No lines, you get splashed to keep you cool, neat animals... it was great. Dallin loved the dolphin show (we went twice) and stills talks about the fish jumping high out of the water! Overall, it was a real fun week!

The Sea World group... Chloe, Colin, Kobe, Ava, and DB
We loved taking the kids on bike rides. I honestly hadn't ridden a bike in forever and was nervous to get on, let alone take the kids on it behind me (don't worry, the trailer only came off once while I was riding leaving the kids stranded in the middle of the road! It was quite the sight!! You should have seen the look on Pistol and the Goose's face... priceless!)
Of course, we made many visits to the beach
Lots of eating...
Lots of baths!!

I don't see any pics of all the Mamma's that went! It looks like the kids had a weekend to themselves.

Sounds like your sister's vacation was a success. Mine had some bumps with Ava's 3-day flu, but what gets better than hangin' with the girls, right?
