La Jolla July & August 2009

La Jolla, California
Poor Little Nate. Big Freeman was going to take the kids into the water and Nate ran back to get his toys. We told Nate that he couldn't bring his toys into the water and to put them down so he could go. Well, he couldn't part with his toys so he just stood here for 15 minutes pouting and looking out at Dad and Little Freeman once in awhile.

Here we are at Balboa Park in the Organ Pavillion. Don't you just love Freeman's face he is making? He learned that from one of his good friends Ellah, and thought it was so funny!
The boys loved splashing around in this popular fountain at Balboa Park. It was a warm day so it was nice for the kids to cool off.

Look at the Leopard shark above Nate's head! Okay, so these are the type of sharks that you see off of La Jolla Cove when you go snorkeling... Friendly sharks... Hmmm.. I don't know how my husband and Grandpa John brave it out there while swimming with them.

In the Shark CageAhh! My nightmare from Jaws came true! Just kidding,
here we are all yelling and making scared faces.

Old Town San Diego
The Whaley House
haunted or not?
We took a haunted ghost tour of a historic home in Old Town San Diego. In each room we were told of it's history and of some ghosts that were seen in the room.... We were encouraged to take pictures just in case we caught a ghost on camera. Unfortunately, no luck for us, but we had a great time!

Oh, it's only mom..

Enjoying a nice Mexican Restaurant

Nate loves salsa and chips!

Aunt Patty and Uncle Ken come to visit!

We learned a fun card game called Golf. Well, Patty and Ken had a different version so of course we had to try it out. Here is everyone laughing and having a good time!
