I needed a break from blogging, then we went to Cali. Now I'm back and ready to be back to the blogging world. I feel refreshed.
Wanna hear about our trip? I knew you did!
Last Friday, we headed out around 5:30 when Jess got home from work. I got some new tunes on the i-pod, we loaded up the car, and headed off to Oceanside. We had fun jamming to music, talking, playing the question game, laughing, and of course eating unhealthy snacks. We decided trips are fun because you stop at gas stations, pick up junk food, and don't feel guilty about eating it. It's about the one and only time I buy and eat candy. And I enjoy every minute of it. No shame. We were staying at his grandpa's condo right on the beach. It's beautiful. We got in late and went right to bed.
The next morning we decided to venture on over to Sea World. I hadn't been there in YEARS. I was so excited to see all the cute sea animals. We stopped at the dolphins first. Duh. I got right up close to the tank, stuck my hand in the water, and waited patiently for a dolphin to swim up so I could pet it. It never happened. Dolphins think they are so funny and they are very smart. So this dolphin came up close, all smiley, swam past me, gave me a mischievous look. and SPLASHED me with his tail. Ten minutes into being at the park and I was soaking. Then he swam away, with this look on his face like, "Aha. I got you." *snicker* But I couldn't be mad because he was so cute!! Plus, he did...he got me. We enjoyed lots of shows, lots of animals, lots of food, and lots of fun.
P.S. -- I almost stole the baby otter. Jess told me I could get a souvenir if I wanted, so I asked for the baby otter in the Sea Lions Live show. He said that probably wouldn't go over so well. So, naturally, I came up with a plan to steal him. It didn't work. So I settled for a polar bear stuffed animal that I won in the arcade. Yes, you got that right. I won it. I beat Jess. I rock. Woooooo.
Sunday we slept in, went to church, cooked a yummy late lunch, and relaxed all day. It was beautiful.
Then, on Monday we went to the one and only DISNEYLAND!! I love this place. It really is the happiest place on earth. It's so magical. I can't wait until our baby is born and old enough to go and enjoy the magic of this place. I couldn't ride any of the "big" rides due to my pregnancy, but it was still worth it. We rode ALL the fantasyland/kiddie rides. We ate churros, dole whips, and broccoli cheese soup in sourdough bread bowls. We soared over Cali. We got scared by ghosts. We met some pirates. And we competed on Toy Story and Buzz. Plus, we got attacked by bugs in the 3D show. Awesome. I love Disneyland. I seriously didn't want to leave.
Tuesday morning, we slept in and packed up for home. Sadly. It was hard to leave. I love California so much. I can't wait until I get to go back again!! On the way home, we stopped at the Palm Springs outlets. Jess is the most AMAZING hubby and let me buy one baby boy thing and one baby girl thing. I can't wait to find out which our baby will be wearing!!! 20 days til we find out! :)
And that, my friends, sums up our trip.
P.S. -- It's a miracle! My pics uploaded. Here's why:
So...I'm really clumsy. I blame it on the pregnancy. I never was before. Anyway, I was walking with my lap top from my bedroom to the craft room, and I dropped the lap top. Poor little guy. He cracked and I know it hurt him. Later, I noticed that the drop caused a DENT that looked like it ruined the spot where I put my picture memory card. I just tried it...and it still works. YAY!!!
