Busy but Fun!

This weekend, Brandon's mom, Helen, came from California for a visit. We had a blast! The Diamondbacks are in interleague play right now and they happened to be playing the Anaheim Angels (Helen's favorite team). So we headed to the game on Saturday-the Diamondbacks lost-but we had a great time anyways. The cool new thing that we did was take the light rail to the game. It took a little while, but was alot better than waiting in the parking structure traffic, and it was cheaper! Later, we went to see "The Proposal" (so funny!) and went shopping. It was a packed weekend, but I think that everyone had a great time!

Father's Day Weekend

For Father's Day weekend, we headed to California to spend time with Brandon's Family. We went to Disneyland a couple of times (the new fireworks show is great!), took the dogs to the dog beach, went to the best swapmeet that I have ever seen, and spent Sunday with Brandon's dad. The great thing was that my parents happened to be in San Diego, so they came up and met us for lunch on Father's Day. Spending time there is always relaxing for us and we can't wait to go back soon!

San Diego

Brandon and I had the opportunity to go to San Diego this past weekend for a little vacation. I don't think anything could have gone any better than it did! It was perfect...perfect weather, no big crowds, and so much fun! After driving out there on Friday, we headed to Sea World. I had not been there since 8th grade and Brandon had never been there, so it was fun wandering through the park and seeing a bunch of new things. And the shows there are amazing!

You have to see Shamu when you are at Sea World! And the Shamu show now is amazing!

If you don't know this about me already, I love animals. I just had to throw this picture in...this bear was so entertaining! He was super curious about everything, and was giving the crowd of people quite a show. So here is one of the many animal pictures that I took over the weekend...I thought it was a pretty cool picture.

The next day we headed to the world famous San Diego Zoo. What a cool place to wander around for a day!

We even got to feed the giraffes, one of the many animals that I fed throughout the weekend.

We also went to Coronado Island and rode bikes on the beach, caught a Padres baseball game (even better cuz they were playing the Diamondbacks!), and went to the Wild Animal Park. It really was the perfect vacation!
