La Jolla Vacation

My grandmother rented a beach house in La Jolla for the summer and we were able to take a break from this Arizona heat and stay in Cali for a week and a half! We first met up with Freeman's mom Jolene, John, Nick and John's kids, Chris and Michael and had a blast. We went to the beach and bodyboarded and went snorkeling. The boys decided to go snorkeling one morning which I chickened out of... Why you ask? Well, because they heard of a great place where you can see some leopard SHARKS! If anyone knew me growing up, I have a great fear of sharks, and it took me a long time to not be afraid of lakes and swimming pools for the fear of hidden sharks in there... So the boys did their thing and saw some sharks, and fish and Nick even found some Dior Sunglasses that I got for a present. Thanks Nick!
Being in La Jolla, we were just down the street from the San Diego temple, so thanks to Nick again for babysitting at 6:30 in the morning we were able to go to a session at the temple. It was our first time in that temple and it was beautiful. The architecture was beautiful and I didn't know they had a Atrium on the top. It was so pretty and peaceful. Later that week we also took family pictures outside too.
We also went to Sea World and had so much fun! It was Freeman and the kids first time there and we loved it. Little Freeman is really into sharks, Shamu and Cookie Monster. (They have Sesame Street themes there) We learned a lot there and had a great time.
At the end of the week, our friends Megan and Kelly and their kids came out to visit with us. We had fun going to the beach, Science Museum, and hanging out. We saw some seals and went snorkeling too. (Hopefully no where near sharks...)
So now we are back at home and every morning Little Freeman asks if we can go to the beach. :(
