Fun Weekend!

We decided to head out after school on Wednesday and go to San Diego, one of our new favorite places to visit. Papa bought us year passes for Sea World, THANK YOU Papa! On Thursday we spent all day at the beautiful park with Nana and Papa. Scott was able to vacation with us this time, which was extra special! He normally doesn't come along because of his crazy schedule!
It was fun to hang out with them for the day. We hit every show. The Shamu show was probably the best, but the Pet's Rule was a definite second. We bought little fish so the boys could feed the seals and the sting rays. Nana bought everyone a stuffed animal or a toy at the end of the day. It was pretty warm out, but not like Mesa. I felt pretty good all day, though I started waddling pretty early on in the day! :)
On Friday we went to Sea World again, only for a few hours. Again, it was pretty toasty but we had such a fun time! We drove a few hours to Palm Springs and stayed there another night. Oh, man was it HOT there! 118 record high. And you could tell. My skin was literally burning! My eye lids even hurt. The pools there were awesome and the boys had a blast splashing around in the water for several hours.
On Sat. we headed to Las Vegas, another one of are favorite cities to visit. We arrived in the early afternoon and headed straight for the pool area again. The resort has great kid pools and again my boys were in heaven playing around in the water. I made dinner and then we headed down to the strip. We always go to the Luxor first, to see if we can catch Criss Angel. We walk around to the front to see his motorcycles and cars outside and then to his gift shop inside. He was there, but of course we didn't see him! Will was bummed. He walked to the Excalibur and went straight to the arcade/game are down stairs. The boys always find lots of money that they then can use to play more games. It's a win, win for everyone!
My favorite thing to do in Vegas is to go to Bellagio and watch the water show. LOVE IT! We were driving over there and the water show was going on. We rolled down our windows and enjoys a little of the music. The boys all loved seeing it too, but were getting too tired to stick around for another showing. So, we headed back to our resort.
On Sunday we went to church and then headed out of town. It was a lot of traveling. A lot of loading and unloading suitcases. But it was also a lot of fun and the boys did really well.
