Our beautiful teeth

The dentist said our teeth look perfect! Don't you agree?

ChuckECheese and our first shave

Well, if you have to go there, I suggest 10:00 am. Not as insane as a Saturday afternoon.

Time for the evening shave.

Need a good laugh? This ought to do it.

Last day in San Diego

We visited Seaport Villiage, took a trolly ride, and spent the day with an good friend from the past, Natalie and her son Ryan. She actually trained me for my job at Phoenix 13 years ago!

A quick trip to the museum to wear them out before the plane ride. Nothing like orange paint in your hair on on your clothes for the airplane ride.

Travel tip: Matchbox tracks pack well and easily entertain, no matter where you go.

Hey, how did Cameron score seat 1A? Lucky bum. Mommy schlepped to the back of the plane with Jasmine. The truth is whoever flew with Cameron got first class! Guess who's the better traveler of the two?

Vacation video interlude!

Of the kids? Nah, we won't bore our non-Grandparent visitors.

Here's a vocal little kitty cat.

And here's a baby shark ready to be hatched.


This place is wonderful for kids. The only downside was the weatherman got the forcast wrong and we froze our feet off!

Mommy is a complete lego klutz and can't create a thing. It was really amazing the things one can create with Legos.

All Lego's! Peekay you would love it here.

All Lego's!!

Can I try this at home or will D.S.S. come knocking at my door?

The Birch Aquarium at Scripps

We won tickets to the aquarium at a door prize, so off we went! We didn't do Seaworld or Disneyland, as they really are a bit much for Cam and Jaz. They don't like loud rides, dark rides, scary rides, etc. But they love Aquariums, Zoo's and the beach. So when they get older, we'll do the big parks. But for now, this was right up their alley.

And now for the breaking news.......

San Diego Zoo

Wow, this place really is incredible. We loved the place.

A little playground break on the way home. Kids play, we watch a beautiful sunset on the beach.

San Diego

We're having a great time in San Diego. Actually, we're staying in Carlsbad. It's a bit cooler than I'd like (60's) but it's sunny and it's raining like mad in Portland, so can't complain too much!
First we went to Balboa Park to see a puppet show "Jack and the Beanstock". Jasmine was a bit afraid of the monster. Just waiting for the doors to open.

How do I look in Daddy's glasses?

What a about me?

We met some friends along the way. What's going to work? "Teamwork!"

But they could not figure out how to get it to slide down the beach. Ah well, they met some new friends to play with and forgot about "sledding" down the beach.

Got to love these playgrounds around here. On the beach with the perfect sunset. Mommy's ready to move here!!

Upload FileTime for more play time!

Dang, vacation is hard work! Time to rest.
