Fleet Week

Every year I forget that Fleet Week is coming and on the first day of practices there is always that moment where I could swear that we are under terrorist attack!!! Because this is our last year in the city I thought it would be fun to go down for a practice day. It was really fun, to see the planes. I think our favorites were the toy looking ones that would spiral down to the ground and do all kinds of flips and tricks, and of course the Blue Angels! I think that Sandee and I were more into it than our kids :)
All of the kids were so good, it was so cold and so loud that I was amazed at how happy they stayed! Maddie and Brock were trying to keep each other warm, so cute.
All bundled up.
Olivia's funny freezing face! For a good laugh try blowing this one up!
Coldy, coldy, cold...

Some More San Diego

While we were in San Diego we also went to the Maritime Museum. It was so much fun, we got to explore a couple of ships and a submarine. The sub was a little intense especially when the kids would start to get a little restless, I kept getting little rushes of panic!! It was a little intense. We had so much fun with Grandma, Grandpa, Ashley and John while we were visiting and can't wait to live closer.
I have to say, one of my favorite parts of the sub was coming out and looking at the Celebrity Cruise Ship a little ways away. Going on a cruise would be so fun, and from the outside that ship looked like a blast!
Maddie, Ash, and Olivia trying out the cots in the submarine.
Matt and I taking a quick rest.
This is kind of random, but Olivia looked so cute riding around the yard in the wagon -I just had to share!
