On the road...

We are currently still on vacation in San Diego, CA. On Sunday, we left Tempe after the evening service and got to the hotel here around 2 AM, giving us about 6 hours of sleep in bed - not bad at all.

So far this week, we have been to Legoland, SeaWorld, the Maritime Museum, the San Diego Zoo, and of course the beach. If that sounds like a lot of walking to you, you are absolutely right!! We are having a wonderful time, and I have not cooked, done dishes or laundry in 4 days!! The hotel we are staying at (Extended Stay America) has a kitchen in our room, but I have not been using it much other than for rinsing the kids' cereal bowls after breakfast. For lunch, we have been eating crackers with cheese and ham/salami, and for dinner we eat out.

I have taken close to 300 pictures (no joke) and look forward to posting the best of them. The internet connection at the hotel is not very fast so I will wait to do so until I get back home. Every night I download all the pictures from the camera onto the laptop after we get home, just in case the camera were to get lost or broken. This morning I noticed that all pictures had been erased from the camera - the boys denied having had anything to do with that. I was very relieved to know that the pictures had already been saved, and that none were lost.

Tomorrow, we are going to visit the Wild Animal Park. Originally, we had planned to drive back home in the evening after it closed, but we might be staying another night and go home on Saturday afternoon instead.

All the kids are having a great time, too. They are pretending to be whales, panda bears, and professional Lego builders. With Solomon's birthday coming up at the end of this month, I'm thinking we will get him some more Legos to play with, something he already loved before this trip. Miriam, who hates riding in the car, has been very good and easy-going on this trip.

Check back in a few days for pictures of all our adventures!
