We got checked into our hotel, everyone showered and we decided to just order room service and call it a night! We were all asleep between 6-7 p.m. since we had been up since about 2:30 a.m. Cali time!
The next morning, my oldest was up by 5 a.m., suck on Central time...it was rough! Since nothing opened for hours yet and my little one really needed to sleep, I took her out to explore our little resort area. It was still dark and we were in our pajamas, but it was so quiet and peaceful out.
She and I made an early morning grocery run for some breakfast and snack stuff, and once everyone was up and at 'em we headed for Sea World for the day!
Saturday, we hit a local farmer's market for breakfast. It was rainy (well, it's what we would call drizzly because we are used to downpours), so there was not a lot of foot traffic. We had so much delicious food and it was really fun to check out the local scene!
The girls fell asleep on the way home, and were in so much need of a nap! So we drove to La Jolla and did a spontaneous beach trip. We never ended up making it to where the seals are because they were too obsessed with the ocean to do anything else, so we just went for it. We had no change of clothes or towels, or anything. They did end up regretting their time in the ocean afterwards when the sun was setting and they were freezing, but I think now they would say it was worth it ;)
The next morning we went back to the zoo one last time in hopes of hitting the animals we hadn't seen yet (even though we had been twice already, we really had only spent a few hours there), but the girls got sucked into the reptile areas and we pretty much did that for an hour and then left! We headed to their children's museum to check that out. It was pretty neat! We spent a couple hours there, then left for lunch and pool time since the sun was finally all the way out!
That evening, we met up with Jordan's family again to do a sunset beach hike and dinner. It was SO beautiful!
Tuesday was our last full day there, so we made it Disney day! It was a very long, full, but magical day! We left pretty early in the morning to get down there by the time it opened.
