A Cool Coastal Vacation

Early this month the boys and I traveled to San Diego for a little vacation. We met Keith's parents there who had planned a fun week with Ethan. Keith parents have a great tradition of taking each one of their grandchildren on a trip sometime before they turn 12.This is quite ambitious of them considering they have 17 grand kids!  It was Ethan's turn and they chose to spend their week with him in San Diego. Ethan was thrilled to take his trip there since he was born in southern California and has wanted to visit again for sometime now.

Mac and I flew out with Ethan so that we could stay for a few days and  visit Sea World. My company gave me a season pass for Sea World which means that my family and I can visit any one of the nine Sea World parks for free, as many times in a year that we want. A very generous gift that we all enjoyed tremendously.

Our first stop upon arriving in San Diego was the Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma. We had a nice walk down the coast and the kids enjoyed the tide pools. The weather was fabulous, a cool 64 degrees with a nice ocean breeze. A nice break from the hot Midwest summer in the middle of July.

The kids enjoyed exploring the tide pools and stacking rocks.
Taking a little break with Grandpa and enjoying the ocean view.
Next stop Sea World.............
