Sea World part...10?

We go to Sea World.  A lot.  We have annual passes, it's a short drive and there is never anyone there during the week.  If it is a nice day, I pack a lunch, pick Sofie up from school and head over.  We spend a few hours soaking up some sun & fresh air...and saying hello to all our sea creature friends.

They have some fun stuff going on for the holidays,including snow, so Baba joined us this time around.  And I took lots of videos.

This is Sofie's new thing when she wants something.  It's this and "please, please, please, please!".

I caught the tail end of this encounter with one of the Orcas.  He/she was checking out the little ones:

We always stop by to see what the seals and sea lions are up to.  It happen to be feeding time - quite entertaining

There is a section full of fun stuff for kids, including rides.  A few of our favorite characters happened to be there.

But Sofie was afraid!

And did I mention the snow?

We hope you are having a great weekend!

Sofie had the entire week off from school and what fabulous weather we are having.

So we...

Had a picnic with our little buddy Liliane

Went out for a girl lunch and some shopping

Went to the beach a few times...we've been having record low tides so thought a good time to teach Sofie about the wonder of tide pools.

Collecting shells is her new favorite thing

Had a couple of nice days and cozy Thanksgiving dinner with Nana

Hope you had a great holiday!  How did you spend it?

Safari Park

This park is run by the San Diego Zoo and just a hop, skip and jump east of us.  We love to go out there to have a picnic, walk around and see what's new with the animals.

Thanks for stopping by!

What have you been up to lately?

School Pics

Well done, beautiful girl!

And guess who got glasses?  It seems our girl is a bit near-sighted...looking stylish!  We can only hope they survive the Sofinator.  :)

Things We Think Are Funny


Imagine her delight when friends showed up recently with whoopie cushions for all! Hours of entertainment.

Quite in contrast, our Halloween costume. Sugar, spice...snakes and snails and puppy dog tails all rolled in to one?

Have a great weekend!
