We spent the day on a few beaches, first in La Jolla, then at seal beach in La Jolla, then on to Coronado to yet another beach. I'm sad that my camera broke the first day, these pictures are from the camcorder, and most are pretty fuzzy.
It's exhausting having this much fun:)
All the kids (including Ryan) LOVE this ride (I don't remember what it's called, something with Pharoah). I refused to go on it the last 2 times we've been to Sea World so this time I finally went on it- and liked it too:)
They had trick or treating at Sea World, but the lines were worse than "Boo @ the Zoo" so we convinced the kids to skip it and we got some candy for them @ Target (a 2 story Target that had TONS of stuff - it was kind of heavenly:)) So the kids trick-or-treated at our hotel room door and the bathroom door. It was good enough for them:)

The view from the first hotel we stayed in - a Hyatt
Ryan had a conference in Southern California the end of October, so we decided to make a family vacation out of it. Ryan had to leave Sunday and the kids and I flew out Tuesday. Ryan was worried about me flying alone with the kids, but I was worried more about driving alone in LA traffic. Both were great. The girls sat behind me and the boys and entertained themselves on the flight, and Max and Brody were really great. Here we all are at the airport waiting for our flight.The first full day we were there Ryan still had classes, so we walked over the overpass to the beach and played. We thought it would be a little chilly so we didn't wear our swimsuits.Brody was not impressed with the cold water- but he had a really good time playing in the sand.We decided 80 degrees was warm enough so the kids went and got their suits on. Later that night we walked down the beach with Ryan.
