Prego in San Diego

Back in November (yes, I'm still playing catch-up) I went to San Diego with my friend, Janae, and all of our kids. We were both pregnant and without husbands, so it was quite the trip! Janae's brother-in-law has a condo right on Solana beach and it was soooo awesome. In fact, it was so great that we ended up booking the condo for a week this summer and are going to vacation there with my family.

Ava, contemplating the physics of sand being hurled through the air

I couldn't resist taking this shot of some local surfers

Cole and Claire were having fun letting the waves chase them up the coast.

However, after Cole was toppled by a wave he was scared for his life and wouldn't go near the water. And he was completely convinced that Claire was going to die when she kept playing in the waves.

Here he is tearfully watching her after he couldn't convince me to make her come away from the water.

Now he's running to me, bawling because she won't listen to him after his repeated screams for her to stop.

And finally: intervention. He's desperately trying to stop Claire from impending death.

Claire, obviously, did not feel her death was as imminent as Cole did.

At least I know he loves her! :)

We went back later that day and stayed away from the water, which finally made Cole relax. The kids spent hours just digging in the sand.

Trying to muster up the courage to go inside this cave.

On our last day we went to see the San Diego temple. I'd never seen it in person and, wow, is it stunning.

The last night we were there Janae saw a mouse run under the oven. We were totally freaked out and decided the best thing to do was blockade the opening under the oven. We didn't see it again, so I guess it worked!

We had SO much fun! The only sad part was that it was the weekend "New Moon" came out and we missed all the fun midnight showings. So, on our way home we had our husbands meet us at the movie theater parking lot to take the kids home while we went to see the movie. It made the trip a complete success!

Why can't I convince Tim to let me run off for a long time to a beach and then to toss the kids on him as I ditch out to a movie :) Some girls have all the luck :)
