Summer Vacation

I'm a little late with vacation pictures.  Instead of taking lots of pictures, I tried to just take a few and be more living in the moment.  :-)
 We went down to the San Diego area for a couple of days.  We stayed in Coronado and went to the beach there.  For all of the begging to go to the beach, neither of the kids actually wanted anywhere near the water.  Grant wanted me to comb the beach for shells and bring back what I found.  
 But they loved playing the sand together so that was lots of fun.

 We found a few strange things on the shore this time.  One was this jellyfish.  

 Another day we went to the circus!

 It was so much fun.  I think it will be even more enjoyable when the kids are a little bigger and I can watch more of the show instead of figuring out what Kate is going to get into next.

 We also went to Sea World.  Grant always loves sea creatures and he thought it was great fun.
 Here's Kate waiting for the Shamu show to start.

  When we asked him what his favorite was that we did on vacation he said, "Staying at the hotel."   

 Legoland was of course on our To Do list.  It was another beautiful day there.

 The 4th of July landed in our vacation time.  It was such a gorgeous night and we barbecued and ate outside at our new table for the first time.
 Then we went up to the balcony off of our bedroom to see the fireworks.  It was a great plan in theory, but there were too many trees in the wrong spots to get a good look at any of the shows.  We saw parts of 3 shows, but we'll have to actually go to see the fireworks next year.
