I took the girls to Del Mar for a few days this past week. We had some repair work done on the ceilings of our house and it was going to be messy and inconvenient. . . so we left and headed to the 'pink house in Del Mar'! Fortunately Ryan's grandparents have a great home for us to stay in. We had a really fun day at the beach. The kids played while I read. . . it doesn't get much better than that! Ryan hadn't planned on coming, but with a little coaxing he took Friday off and we had a little mini vacation.
We took the girls to Sea World and they loved it. Mia couldn't stop chanting 'Shamu, Shamu' the whole drive home!
And that brings me to the highlight of the trip. . . the tent. We stopped by Costco to get Sea World tickets and Ryan saw this great tent. We were in the market for a new tent as we have a Ward Campout coming up (and no tent to speak of) so he picked it up. Kail thought it was so cool and asked if she could sleep in it. Ryan thought it would be fun to set it up in the house and test it out (are you serious?!). The thing is HUGE. It literally took up the entire room. Of course, Kail thought he was the coolest Dad ever for setting it up. The girls and Ryan and Rosie (and eventually me) all watched Enchanted and attempted to sleep. Ryan and the dog were successful, but the kids were not sleeping at all, so we ended up abondoning our tent about 10:30 pm and sleeping in beds!
