Visit with Caroline

We had the greatest visit with Caroline and her friends! 

Loved the La Jolla Farmer's Market. 

Back at the beach house. We have such good memories from vacationing here years ago, prior to moving here. 

Aunt Donna!

Couldn't be more proud to call this man my brother-in-law. 

Love this pic of Lainey and me. 

Lunch at Hodad's in Ocean Beach. 

And then to the airport. :(

But we will see her again next week!

Starnes Family Halloween 2014

It was a good one!

Pumpkin carving on Halloween Eve, as always:

San Diego provided a lovely fall lit sky.

Pre-school parade:

My friend, Natalie, NEVER disappoints. I adore her.

Blake, as always, never misses. Well done.

Carter took off with friends for the first time ever. I cried. But, since he's nearly as tall as me, I suppose it was time.

Now, on to Thanksgiving. And, my 40th birthday on November 21. Bring it on, 40's.

I'm ready.

Sea World

We recently visited Sea World for some DLR Prep School research and totally enjoyed the day. We had not been since 2003, when we were on vacation here with only one child. The kids have been asking to go, so we did!

Sting rays were awesome.

Kids loved the Shamu show.

The touch pools were a hit.

And, oddly, I think we enjoyed the dolphin show more than Shamu.

Sea World San Diego is celebrating 50 years! 

This was our favorite part, I think: The flamingo walk. All those interested (as in all of the flamingos that are interested) get to leave their fenced in area for a "walk" through the park. So cute.

Atlantis was awesome. It's a roller coaster/water ride. So fun.

So many fun memories from our 2003 trip. Loved riding the gondola then and now!

Kids got SOAKED on this one.

And, awesome Carter recreated his signature Shamu trainer pose from when he was 2. It was so cute. Love that kid.

I''ll have a full review for Disneyland fans on this week!

Off to Julian for the day now.
