Day 10: San Diego Zoo

For some reason, I have had a hard time wanting to post about our zoo day. I have to say, this was the only "blah" day we had, none of us were thrilled by the "World's Largest & most exciting" zoo. Not sure what we "missed", but we ALL decided without a doubt that the Portland Zoo is 100 times better! This zoo was definitely bigger, but I'm not sure it really had more animals, they were just spread out more. Oh, & we learned the hard way, the maps they hand you do NOT go along with the posted signs. Oh well, we managed to laugh & enjoy ourselves anyway. Besides, the day ended great, we went swimming back at the hotel, went shopping & grabbed In N Out for dinner, watched a movie & hung out in our room.

Here are some pics to show we really were there lol...

Day 9: Carlsbad Beach

We left Anaheim to head to San Diego for the last leg of our vacation. Our BFF's were staying in Carlsbad for Spring Break so we decided to make a detour there & join them for a day at the beach. The kids had SO much fun hanging out, esp Bubby & The Princess since they got to spend the afternoon with their best friends from back home!

Here are a "few" of the MANY pics I snapped from the beach...

It's been a few CrAZy days around here! We just spent 3 fun filled days walking & walking, & walking some more. Oh we also spent hours waiting in line to... RIDE SOME SUPER FUN RIDES!!! We had so much fun at the "Happiest place on earth" & California Adventure, esp when the lines were short! Actually, the longest lines we waited in were to see Tinkerbell & the Princesses. Go figure! lol But, seeing the smile & excitement in My Princesses eyes was SO worth the long wait!!!

Ok, Instead of going on & on I'm just going to share some pics since that's what you want to see anyway! ;)

Day 5: Some R & R...

Today was our "down" day, we spent the day gearing up for the BIG parks later this week. We literally did nothing except some shopping at the COOLEST outdoor mall here in Anaheim, THEY HAVE A CROCS STORE!!! Uhhh, yeah, I thought I had died & gone to Heaven, esp when I found my bubble gum pink Mary Janes!!! Needless to say, Bubby, The Princess & I are all sportin us some new crocs!

We went down to the pool for a bit, but as soon as the wind startin pickin up, we came back to the room to hang out. Prince Charming & I did manage to take a walk & ended up at the Cheesecake Factory, well, since we were there, we just HAD to get a piece to try! LOL

Anyway, I have no pics to share, sorry, but I promise, there will be more than plenty to see in the coming post from Disneyland & California Adventure!!!

Day 4: Our last day in Glendora & the Laker game!!!

I'm warning you now, this post will be pic heavy!

There is a "park" where across the street from where I was born, it's called "Big Tree Park", last time I was here, I had my dad take me by so I could get pics of the boys on the tree, well, I love this place so much & wanted to continue the "tradition". Here are a "few" pics of how we spent our last morning in Glendora...



Since I never even took my camera (or phone) out of my purse during the family BBQ we went to, I walked away with NO pics (obviously). As soon as we left my cousin's house, I regretted not getting a pic of at least my Grandma. I told Prince Charming I would love to try to fit in a quick visit to her house so I could snap a few pics of her with the kids. As much as it hurts me to say this, I'm sure this will be the last (& only for the Princess) time we see Grandma. :( Anyway, it was really important to me to get some pics so my hubby, being the awesome guy he is, made it happen. Thanks honey, I will always treasure these pics!
Me with Grandma Rhoda & the Princess...

Me & my kiddos with Grandma...

All in all, it was a pretty low key day... until... the BIG GAME! Daddy had bought Laker tickets for him & the boys. (I chose not to spend the $ on tickets for the Princess & I since I knew she would get bored). The boys were SO BEYOND EXCITED!!! This really was the hi light of their entire vacation! Anyway, they had great seats & Prince Charming got some great pics, UNTIL... my camera battery died! UGH! Oh well, better than getting NO pics! It was so much fun hearing the excitement in their voices when they got home from the game & were reliving it for me. Here are a few of the pics he did manage to snap while the camera was still "alive"...

We are having a blast so far!!! Goodbye for now...
