Our Thanksgiving GetAway

watching cartoons at the airport at 5:00 am
waiting for our flight to San Diego at 6:00 am

tired but excited for our little family getaway
to San Diego
over the Thanksgiving break

First thing we did was head to Sea World.
Here we're at the Shamu show and
Justin and Jared are ducking from all the
attacking birds

only photo at Sea world of all the kids

made a stop at the
Mormon Battalion Visitors Center
in Old Town.
Taylor got to be a part of the show when
they dressed him like a soldier in the battalion

took Jared and Kamryn
to LegoLand
(the older kids went on an Old Town Trolley tour of SanDiego)

going in to see a 4D Lego movie

It was such a great trip for our family to be able to get away over the holiday. One benefit of Paul traveling a lot is all the points he racks up. We were able to all fly to San Diego for free. Our family dynamic is going to be changing so much over the next 2 years while Justin is gone on a mission and Brooke heads off to college that we wanted to take this one last trip just our little family. We all had loved heading off to sunnier and warmer San Diego for a few days. It was great to eat out on Thanksgiving :) And fun to explore and hang out together.

That's awesome! I love the San Diego area. And interestingly enough, my grandpa is buried at the Fort Rosecrans National cemetery-the pt. loma military cemetery, along with my grandma. I'm glad you had such a great trip with your whole family!
