Believe it or not we had to escape the heat this weekend. Who would have thought that would happen in November, I know. Actually though we are always looking for an excuse to put our Sea World passes to use. So the weather, along with a little prodding from the Nielsens and the Petersons, persuaded us to make our way down to San Diego. I forget what a pleasant ride it is (when there is no traffic that is) and luckily we didn't hit traffic. And Sea World... arguably one of my favorite places to take the kids. I love that there are almost no lines, I love the play area where they can run wild and be crazy, the Shamu show can bring you to tears almost every time, and let's not forget the funnel cakes. Which we missed out on this time cuz we were only there for three hours which is why we love our passes... not an all day commitment! Anyway the boys navigated the day for us this time. They had their maps out and came to a consensus on where the next stops would be.


This is how the trip started. And ended for that matter. We told the boys they had to close their eyes and nap before we got there and surprisingly they obeyed!

The fun did not stop at Sea World. We had dinner at Pei Wei and then, believe it or not, wen to the second half of the Utah game with our faithful Ute fans. Don't worry, apparently Dallin got into a converation with some lady telling her we don't like Utah. We want BYU to win. He won't be pushed around, even when he's outnumbered!



The real test will be Saturday. Who will come out victorious? BYU or Utah?

OOOOOOOHHHHH we love Sea World too. Last year Alexus and I went about 8 times yes and that is a lot of trips from Utah. we've only been once this year. Alexus loves, loves, loves to feed the dolphins and play with the star fish or should I say see stars. I cannot get enough Shamu.

By the way I love reading your blogs. Yes I am a blogstocker.

sounds so much more fun then spending some quality one on one time with the andersons. and btw, there is a funnel cake "shop" that gets set up every weekend just down the street from us...venture out any time to enjoy one.

Too cute little D.B. Love the picture with Grover. The boys would love that. I'm so proud of your future Cougar for holding his ground. People should learn not to mess with the Cougs. Ahh, Sea World!! Miss you!
