San Diego here we come.... and go!

So we were gone this week to our much anticipated vacation to San Diego. Here are some favorite moments... 

Cam & Ty in 'Little Italy'.  We had a really fresh fire-baked pizza and some Italian donuts- YUM!!
Spent some time in Pacific Beach. Whenever we go there we never seem to make it to the beach, so we decided to take the time. It was beautiful- perfect 80 degrees with a wonderful breeze.  And the water was wonderfully BLUE!!
Blake just being cute at the restaurant.  He did so well for just coming down with the sniffles.  I swear it was that nasty hotel..
We walked around near one of the aircraft carriers and went to a fish restaurant nearby.  A stranger offered to take our pic & I couldn't resist.  Although, I have to say, it felt like handing over one of my children. I just was hoping to God she wouldn't drop it!! (Or worse- run away...AAHH!!)
The kids love to watch the 'senoras' make fresh tortillas in Old Town. One of our fav spots in SD! 
Tyler embracing his Hispanic culture- ha ha!!! He looked so dang cute in that sombrero, but I practically had to bribe him to put it on!
And of course, Sea World!  Shamu is beautiful as ever.
Ty tried to take the role of the navigator. He took the job very seriously. :)
Here's the fam at the Shamu show.  

We had a great time overall, even fighting colds and running out of room in the hotel.  At least we know now that our little family is not so little anymore.  Definitely need a suite from now on. 
Why is it that you always feel like you need a vacation when you get back from vacation? I guess that's the way it is with 3 kids.  I'm just grateful for the memories...
