We're Back!!

We had a mini-vacation this last week and because the kids were out of school for two days we decided to go to San Diego.  It has been my goal to get my kids to Legoland for the last two years and this was the year.  They are not getting any younger!  Of course on our travels we always have to take the traveling penguin!
We started in San Diego Harbor and toured the USS Midway.  It was fascinating!  My son and I loved it.  We are big World War II addicts.  I am not sure how the sailors new were they were at any time on that ship.  It was a huge ship.  It had an audio tour with it and I learned so much.
Next was Sea World and we had a great day.  The one thing I notice from the previous time I had been was that the trainers are not in the water with the whales any more.  It was a great show and a perfect day.  We were able to see all the shows we wanted and ride some fun rides ie: Journey to Atlantis!
Last but not least was Legoland!  It was very interesting with loads of displays and rides.  I think my kids had fun and at least I got them there before they were 40 years old!   Great accomplishment for me!!
Well it is back to work for me...got to pay for the trip!!
Enjoy your day,
Barb

  7. What a fun vacation! We love Sea World, but haven't been in years. We used to live in California and had season passes. My kids want to go to Legoland, but we haven't made it yet.
