San Diego

That timeshare presentation finally paid off! We had a great time in San Diego going to the Zoo and Sea World.

This was on the bus ride around the zoo. We were happy to save this part for the end when our legs needed a break.
The panda bears were one of our favorites. They were so cute, especially when they look at you. There was something about them that just makes you want to give them a hug!

The next morning we got up and headed to the beach at Coronado. The kids loved finding sea shells. Carlos and I enjoyed driving around Coronado Island.
This was inside the polar bear cave.

At the shark exhibit. They were swimming right above us!
Carlos fulfilled one of his lifelong dreams of seeing Shamu.
All the shows were great, but our favorites were the Shamu and dolphin shows.
Before we drove home we stopped at the Harbor and walked around. They had some great old boats out, along with some huge war ships. We had some delicious fish and chips at Anthony's. Carlos claims it was the best he has ever had in his life.

Thursday we carved our pumpkins. I asked Nicholas what he wanted to pumpkin to look like. He ran and got his favorite Halloween book and picked out which one he wanted.
Eliza was a BYU cheerleader. If you ask her what a cheerleader said she would say, "Goooooooo COUGARS!!!"
Nicholas was a ghost. He didn't like the white make-up though and wiped it all off.
Halloween night we all went over to the Wayas' house. We had a great dinner of chili and hot dogs with all the extras and then played games.

Eliza found a fellow cheerleader to cheer with!

The new babies stole the show as always, and don't these new moms look great?

We all had a great time trick-or-treating and hanging out eating candy.
